Interesting Facts

#Fact
1 Said he was glad to work with Harry Morgan.
2 There is disagreement amongst fans as to whether or not G.W. Bailey appears in Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985). It is rumored that G.W. filmed a small uncredited cameo as the man shown from behind while being photographed during the wedding reception, but this has never been verified officially in any published interview to date.
3 Longtime friends with fellow Texan (and occasional co-star over the years) Barry Corbin, whom Bailey credits with talking him out of studying law and into pursuing acting while the two were both students at Texas Tech University.
4 After the departure of Gary Burghoff and his character Walter "Radar" O'Reilly from M*A*S*H (1972), the producers planned to have Bailey's character Luther Rizzo take over as company clerk. However, Alan Alda was able to convince the producers to have Klinger (Jamie Farr) take the role instead.
5 Along with Janis Joplin, one of Bailey's other high school classmates was future head coach of the University of Miami Hurricanes and Dallas Cowboys, Jimmy Johnson.
6 Has a plaque on the West Texas Hall of Fame which adorns the base at the feet of a statue of rock-n-roll legend Buddy Holly in Lubbock, Texas. The plaques commemorate all musicians and actors from Texas.
7 The Closer (2005) is the second series in which he, Tony Denison and Michael Paul Chan have been cast members. The first was Under Cover (1991), a series in the early 1990s about the CIA.
8 Originally studied law at Texas Tech University, but ultimately decided to become an actor instead.
9 Began his theatrical career as the artistic director of the Lubbock Theater Center.

Quotes

#Quote
1 Unless you're a big movie star, regular television work is going to bring you more exposure than anything. Everybody has a television; not everybody goes to the movies.
2 I'm from Port Arthur, Texas! Little guy! Little character guy from one of the saddest oil-refinery towns in America. And here I was driving over to Beverly Hills, to 20th Century Fox, to be on 'M*A*S*H!'
3 Do I enjoy features? Yeah, I really do. Would I like to do some more features before I head to the barn? Yeah, probably. But I also love television. I love doing television because it's fast, and that I like a lot.
4 I don't belong to any country clubs. I don't have this big circle of friends. Where I make my friends is where I work.
5 (On his role in The Closer (2005)) This is best job I've ever had. I think a lot of it has to do with this time in my life, you know. I've gotten older. I've squandered all the other money I've made. So it's nice at this point in my life to have a part like this, that's so well-written. And I love the cast. It's a joyful place to work, it really is. We have our moments, 'cause we're like a family. But overall, it's a great gig to have. And I love the character. I mean, there are other things I've done that I've really liked, but I think a lot of it has to do-it always has to do-with the character. It always has to do with the writing. You want to make a lot of money, but if the writing is bad, it doesn't matter, you know?
6 (On being remembered as Captain Thaddeus Harris in the Police Academy movies) So much for ten years of education, years of training in Shakespeare... being remembered for a dog peeing in your eye!
