AGES Siegfried: ”I usually don’t like to talk about age, but I think Cher is 70.” Roy: ”I’m still in the womb. Can you feel me kicking?”
MUSTWORTHINESS Forget about the talking white tigers. The real breakout stars of NBC’s animated comedy ”Father of the Pride” (based on Siegfried & Roy’s Vegas magic act) are the ‘toon versions of the German tricksters, hilariously voiced by Dave Herman and Julian Holloway.
BEST CAREER ADVICE Roy: ”Be following your dreams. Ja. Unless it is the one where you go to school in your underwear and there’s an exam you didn’t study for.”
WORST CAREER ADVICE Siegfried: ”My agent told me not to read for the part of Malcolm X.”
BEST EXAMPLE OF CAREER SELF-SABOTAGE Roy: ”I’d have to say Heinrich, our gardener…tragic, what he did to that azalea plant.”
YOU’D BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT ROY… ”Enjoys boxing,” says Siegfried. ”Not fisticuffs. Putting things in boxes and closing them for later.” ”Ja, I do,” says Roy.
ON THEIR MUST LIST Siegfried: ”I’m not sure what you mean, but if you’re going out I need milk and stamps.”
NEXT ”Pride” debuts early fall on NBC.
