James Hampton

  1. Charles Tyner, The Longest Yard, 1973.  Director Robert Aldrich offered Unger to Hampton, but the bugler Dobbs on TVC’s  F Troop, 197-1967 asked to be Caretaker. Fine bv me, said burly Bob … and Tyner became in Burt Reynolds’ crude and cocky caper about a convicts’ football team. Adam Sadler’s 2004 re-hash (even with a Burt cameo) made the original look like, well let’s say, Ben-Hur.
