I just saw a television commercial and one of the actors in it was Alan Alda. Who knew he was still alive...

LOL He was on The Blacklist a season or two ago. Evil man.

The ad you saw was other actors who played TV doctors doing promos for Cigna I think it was.

His character on The Blacklist. It was quite the surprise because I've never seen AA play an evil character before. Quite disturbing.

Yah, he played mean & vicious in Murder at 1600, from 1997 - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_at_1600 - spoilers, if you'd rather see it without any prior knowledge.

He played a sadistic man in this one, too.


Whispers in the Dark (1992) - IMDb


It was so against type that I decided I didn't like the movie based on Alda being the bad guy.
There are few things I find unacceptable in movies but one of them is Alda as the antagonist.
