The Odd Couple

The Odd Couple (Bob Copley photo / June 25, 2012)

Pat Sajak's (left) been a part of our lives since the heyday of "Wheel of Fortune" in the '80s. (Many of us fondly remember Martin Short's "SNL" fascination with him as well.) He's in Connecticut playing neat-freak Felix Unger against Joe Moore's (right) Oscar Madison in Connecticut Repertory Theatre's production of Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple." After the broken-hearted Felix gets tossed out by his wife, the mismatched pair (Oscar's a slob) end up living together in a single apartment, where they interact comically with four poker buddies and two British divorcees living above them. (True story: Sajak and Moore became real-life friends during a tour of duty in Vietnam.)
