Scott Newman

  1. Wm J Beaudine, Hi-Riders, 1977.   Paul Newman made his son give up the TJ role, suspecting Scott had only been chosen because of his name. And, er…  what was he called when his father wangled him a screen debut among the firemen of The Towering Inferno, 1973. Doh!  “The only thing my dad helps me get is my foot in the door.” How else do second generation actors begin…  from Jane Fonda to Scott Eastwood. Director Greydon Clark said Newman, pere, was wrong. After seven screen roles, Newman, fils, ODed at age 28.
