George B.


Lee Tergesen plays Frank, a belligerent barfly at the pub where George works as a janitor. Something about Lee's appearance and performance here reminds me of Robert Conrad -- he's cocky, combative and muscular.

The title character is played by David Morse, who also was the lead in "Hack" (Lee was in the pilot episode). Morse, of course, got his big acting break in Tom Fontana's "St. Elsewhere" in the early 1980s.

Lee/Frank appears in two scenes, both about 5 minutes long, and his character serves to remind George of just how stupid he is. In fact, Frank routinely gets really angry about how stupid George is. 

"Variety" called "George B" a "slight but sporadically amusing comedy" that has elements of deadpan farce, 1940s film noir, and a touch of Forrest Gump. A good synopsis of the film can be found here.

"George B" debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 1997.
