    I have no idea, however Gary ( the character) broke his arm while falling of a slide on a playground in the episode "Say Uncle". I doubt this is considered a stunt...

    That would be William Devane ( Greg) and Constance McCashine (Laura)

    Of course. Peter and Greg were thought to be brothers, so Paige was briefly thought to be Peter's niece, not his sister like I mistakenly put down in my previous post.

    Really? I didn't know that.
    When? When she had flashbacks of meeting Gary at the dinner?

    Joan Van Ark's daughter player her flashback in the episode Will the Circle Be Unbroken (S1E5). It was an uncredited role and she mentioned that in an interview
    Michele Lee's son also had 2 small roles - one as an employee of the Sumner Group and one as Claudia's student

    Michael Filerman didn't have any kids but his nephew Joel Okmin (as in evil Okmin industries) was involved in production

    1. Jacobs had a habit of naming KL characters after relatives, so I'm guessing Karen was his mother.:D
    2. I'll use process of elimination on this: Don Murray and Michele Lee were likely big enough stars not to need to audition. JvA and TS were already cast on Dallas and didn't need to re-audition. "Laura" was written with CM in mind, and Jacobs knew John Pleshette as his wife's ex-husband (I think). So I'm assuming they auditioned Jim Houghton and Kim Lankford. And of course I'm probably wrong. :)
    3. I know Laura was written for Constance, but the other one? Erm...maybe John Pleshette.
    4. I believe he'd played Gary as a "guest star," then got another contract role elsewhere and was unavailable when they decided to produce KL.
    5. The Love Bug is her only pre-KL movie I know of...
    6. In "God Will," the episode in which Danny and Gary had that knock-down drag-out fight in the barn, they said Danny broke Gary's arm with the baseball bat. I'm guessing it happened in that scene.
    7. Claudia Lonow in Rude Awakening. No guess on which actress didn't appear.
    8. I'm interested to know the answer to this one. Currently, that annoying Andrea from BH90210 runs the entire union!
    9. DJ wrote the episode with her in mind?
    10. These were already offered by others.
    11. Hartman, Lee, Lankford, Harris, Petersen (in a band/group), Riley (in a band/group), and Penny Peyser.
    12. I believe he was dating Lisa Hartman.

    1. It wasn't actually a David jacobs name, but a Michael filerman.
    2. You're right about Kim and Jim. There was another actor mention though.
    3. Yep, constance and John

    4. True. He was bound by contract to the series "Little Women" (chuckles from the crowd)
    5. Michele Lee was on 5 movies I believe - 4 pre-KL and one post (along came poly)

    7. Donna Mills guest starred on the knots related episode (titled "Emerald Bluff")
    According to the Internet at that time Michele Lee was scheduled to play her mom, but eventually didn't

    8. Totally with you on the Andrea part!
    The actor was Clyde Kuatsu (?) who played Dr Akura (Sid's doctor) on season 3
    I saw him talking to Kevin Dobson at a party and was really tempted to come and say "I really liked you on Knots Landing" and when kevin would say thank you I'd be like: "Oh I was actually talking to Clyde" and then start talking about the corridor scene with Karen.

    Ken Howard, the general president before Gabriel, was Michele Lee's leading man on seesaw.
    I understood when he was at SAG quite a few people were wishing he'd go back to acting...

    9. Julie Harris wise - David Jacobs did write the episode for her, but there was something that preceeded it.

    12. True - Lisa Hartman according to the "Knots Landing" revealed show

    11. I think Joey Gian also got to sing an uncredited song.
    And Michele lee wise - I still need to figure out if she sang that "Send In the Clowns" song on season 6 or 7

    For ML I guess you could also count when she sang a (background) song during the montage in "Holiday On Ice".

    I recall Gary volunteered to be in the "Father/Daughter Talent Show" at Olivia's school, and Olivia lamented that she wanted them "to be Donny and Marie, but Gary can't sing".

    Now that you mentioned the talent show, I think Michele Lee and Claudia Lonow had this cute duet "Put on a Happy Face"
    And Claudia Lonow had another song "If They Could See Me Now"

    And there are the road trip songs on Season 10 or 11 with Karen / Paula

    Michelle Phillips didn't really sing on the show but she had her song played there (dedicated to the one i love)

    Michele Lee also sang on Season 12's Steve Shaw Tribute "Look at that Face"

    So here are the ones we have left:
    1. Whom was the character of Karen named after?
    2. Of the 4 main couples in the pilot - which actors had to read (=audition) for the part?
    5. The day before Michael Filerman suggested Michele Lee for the role of Karen, David Jacobs watched one of her movies -- which movie was it?
    6. On which episode did Shackelford insist on doing his own stunts and broke his arm?
    9. How did Julie Harris get the role of Lilimae?
