Darren McGavin Facts
Studied acting at New York City's prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse under legendary acting coach, Sanford Meisner.

He was indeed "curiously" uncredited in The Natural (1984). During the filming of the movie, Robert Redford was so pleased with McGavin's portrayal of his character that they began to expand the role. However, after a certain point, union rules dictated that the actor's contract needed to be renegotiated for salary and billing. After haggling on salary, and holding up production of the movie because of it, the billing had to be decided. Apparently, McGavin became somewhat fed up with the proceedings and instructed his agent to waive his billing entirely so they could get back to filming.

Children by Melanie York: Megan, Bridget, York, and Bogart.
