Sitcom is a switch for 'Salesman' star

Playing Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman" was "the best experience" of his life, says Brian Dennehy, who stars in the new NBC comedy "The Fighting Fitzgeralds."

It's quite a switch for the Tony-winning actor.

"A sitcom is different," Dennehy, 62, told AP Radio. "I mean, this is for money, and I like doing comedy, and I'm good at comedy, and if you're a good actor, why would you always want to do the same thing?

"The whole point of being an actor is you can play different parts and so this is about as different as it can be."
