Emmy winner Peter MacNicol is not buying what Jack Klugman“s angry son is selling because Peter thinks the tribute to Cory Monteith could actually save lives.
MacNicol — who won an Emmy for “Ally McBeal” and also starred in classics like “Ghostbusters II” and “Sophie”s Choice” — tells our sources tonight”s tribute to Cory will create enormous drug awareness and possibly reach thousands of teens on a path of destruction.
Peter doesn”t think it matters that Cory died without a single Emmy. He says, “If we are going to get into a merit system based on longevity then we are in trouble.”
Tell that to Adam Klugman — who is furious that his 3-time Emmy winning deceased father is barely getting a mention at tonight”s ceremony.
But MacNicol says, “The memoriam is not only to honor those who completed a full marathon.”
