A Used Maverick

By Larry Mondello

Call it his deal with the devil up for payment, James Garner has hit the skids.

A respected actor with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Screen Actors Guild, Garner is now appearing in a local car commercial in Oklahoma.

Granted, the dealer group he’s working with is from his hometown of Norman, Oklahoma, and it’s probably a favor for a friend, but there is something sad about seeing him hawk cars on local TV.

The least he could do is have Mariette Hartley on with him. Get Jim Rockford on the case!

I was thinking the same thing: How pathetically sad for a legendary actor to be reduced to hawking cars.

Aw, come ON, guys! One of the greatest things about James Garner is that he really doesn't care how things might "look." If he wants to do something for someone in his beloved home town, he does it - period.

That's why they love him as much as he loves them. :o)
