Rooney, Carvey and Lane - VIDEO
Although I was only five or six when the very short-lived series One of the Boys aired, I think I actually remember it. At least, I remember Mickey Rooney being in it. I had no idea who the rest of the cast was, and neither would anyone else until years later.
The show centered on Rooney, who moved in with his college-age grandson (played by Dana Carvey) and his roommate, played by Nathan Lane. Meg Ryan also starred in the series, which, according to IMDb, ran for a whopping eight episodes.
The promo clip below, narrated by Casey Kasem, describes the show as The Mickey Rooney Show, but as Mark Evanier points out, that title was most likely given the kibosh before the show ever hit the airwaves.
It's pretty cool seeing a young Carvey and Lane before they hit it big, and it also silenced any doubts I may have had about Lane's acting ability: I genuinely believed he wanted to date a girl.
Does anyone else remember this series? Someone with more than just my vague, kindergarten recollection?
