Gleason: The Jackie Gleason Story (2002) starring Brad Garrett
Gleason is a wonderfully done television biography of Jackie Gleason, starring Brad Garrett, best known for his television sitcoms Everybody Loves Raymond and Til Death. I was absolutely flabbergasted by Brad Garrett’s performance. Not only did he do a wonderful acting job, but he truly made the character of Jackie Gleason come to life. Given his size, I would never have believed that he could carry off the role of the pudgy comedian Jackie Gleason. I was totally wrong.
