George Lindsey

Is it possible to get a major supporting role on a major television show, and have it cripple your acting career?

It nearly happened to George Lindsey. You remember him as Goober from The Andy Griffith Show.

Taking that role, he says ,typecast him for years to come.

I met him about 25 years ago, when he wrote a memoir called Goober in a Nutshell.

So here now, from 1995, George Lindsey.

George Lindsey was 83 when he died in 2012. but thanks to Andy Griffith Show reruns, Goober lives on.
