Kline passes on chance to eat `diseased' fish

Things got a bit fishy for Kevin Kline when he went to Harvard to accept the Hasty Pudding Club's Man of the Year award.

First, members of the undergraduate drama club rolled out a fish tank. Then they tried to get Kline, who was wearing a curly red wig and a bra resembling a fish, to swallow one of the scaly creatures, a feat he performed in the movie "A Fish Called Wanda."In the end, Kline only fed it.

"This fish looks diseased," Kline joked Tuesday evening before accepting the award, a shiny pudding pot. "I'm truly honored and touched in ways too indescribable to tell you."
