He was also very involved with many charities, including AMFAR, Camp Joslin for Diabetes, Doctors Without Borders, Habitat for Humanity, and especially the Alliance for Children’s Rights, which facilitates adoptions in LA County. Willie’s son was born to a different family, but the two eventually reunited through adoption. Willie became the National Spokesperson for National Adoption Day twice when the issue was in the spotlight. Garson, aside from acting, was a world-class poker player. He is nicknamed Evil Willie on the first episode of Legendary Championship Poker, and continued to play in tournaments all over the world. He also participated in charity and World Poker Tours.
Willie Garson is the type of character that usually plays a sidekick to the lead protagonist, or a character that stores valuable information for the protagonists when they need it. Although he is not always appreciated for his small personality, he is nevertheless one of the first characters you have come into contact with before and helps you with what you need. Chances are, you don’t notice the scenes and shots that Willie Garson has. He is the supportive actor in the cast, someone who isn’t noticed until he is needed to take over. Nevertheless, he is still worthy of acknowledgment as he is an important member of the cast and film crew. Everyone’s got their niche, right? So here are 5 things that you probably don’t know about Willi Garson.
First is that he’s close friends with Sarah Jessica Parker. He’s known the actress for the past 15 years. It is good to have A-list talent in your contact list and on your side. However, you do not want to lean on them unduly. Willie seems like the type of actor that would use his contacts to a positive advantage so long as he could do something for them as well. And as mentioned before, He’s actually won a round on a Celebrity Texas Hold ‘Em tournament. He was given the name Evil Willie for the manner in which he plays. He doesn’t look like he could bluff anyone for a single moment let alone get them to fold or call him on a winning hand.
But that’s the beauty of poker, you don’t have to look fierce, you just have to know how to play. Next is that he is that person next door that you might depend on or at least be friendly with. Willie knows that he’s not the lead male actor and has come to terms with it, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t important. He knows he is a dependable friend and can be there for someone when they need him. Being a great friend doesn’t always have anything to do with being center stage. And he had also attended Yale Drama School. Willie Garson has been in the industry for a while and he knows what it takes to create believable characters.
He’s had a few memorable roles, like Mozzie on White Collar. There isn’t any telling if he will have an impact on the industry in the future, but one thing is certain: he has at least created some memorable characters. And lastly, he has played the part of Lee Harvey Oswald three different times. One of his roles is playing the fall guy in Ruby, Quantum Leap, and MADtv. He reflects a range that goes from big-screen performance to satire, which demonstrates his impressive range of skills. Willie has continued to take on the role three more times without problem and enjoys what he does. This makes him reliable and admirable, which we admire in him.
