Elliott Gould and Denise Crosby

Trapper John, Rueben Tischkoff, Ross & Monica’s Dad on Friends – it’s hard to invite Elliott Gould into your basement and not feel like you’ve invited dozens of iconic film and tv characters in. From “Is Jon Voight scary?” to “Is Babs particularly protective of her nails?” no questions were off the table for the Oscar-nominated actor.


And no sooner was Mr. Gould out of the guest chair, then Denise Crosby took his place. An accomplished actress in her own right and Mr. Gould’s costar in the Showtime series Ray Donovan, Ms. Crosby told fun and fascinating stories about her role on Star Trek The Next Generation (Tasha Yar) and her relationship with her famous grandfather.
