Hollywood actor Denny Miller to give BYU address Feb. 21

“Didn’t You Used To Be...What’s His Name? Tips on How Not to Get Lost in the Hollywood Jungle”

The BYU Department of Theatre and Media Arts will host a department forum featuring Denny Miller, an acting veteran of 50 years, on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 11 a.m. in the Nelke Theatre.

His presentation, titled “Didn’t You Used To Be...What’s His Name? Tips on How Not to Get Lost in the Hollywood Jungle,” is free and open to the public.

Miller’s 50-year career includes 19 films, 138 TV commercials, 234 TV episodes—most notably 110 episodes of “Wagon Train” with Ward Bond and John McIntire. He played the lead role in the 1959 film “Tarzan, the Ape Man.”

He was discovered by a talent agent while working at his summer job moving furniture in Hollywood. He was studying to be a football or basketball coach at the University of California-Los Angeles, but his success in the film and television industry led him down a different path.

Between acting jobs, Miller teaches relaxation and works as a personal trainer. His book “Toxic Waist? Get to Know Sweat!” was a finalist in the USA Book News Health category for the Best Books of 2006.
