Joseph Bottoms

  1. RH Thompson,  Surfacing,  Canada, 1981.   Promoted to the lead when  elder brother Timothy stalked. Joe  stayed  put  – and married the executive producer Del Andison. He original role was taken over  by the Canadian Thompson.
  2. Michael Beck, Celebrity, TV, 1984.     The story of three Texan teens  involved in a rape growing up… Bottoms was offered Mack, a sort of closested Rock Hudson – but really wanted to be Beck’s popular pastor, TJ Luther. Ben Masters was the third guy,  a journalkist fighting the KKK.  Despite his literal Bible-thumping audition, Bottoms remained the beefcake movie star.
