‘Nebraska’s’ Stacy Keach is busy in any genre
Veteran actor Stacy Keach has been working on sitcoms, has a role in the upcoming ‘Nebraska’ movie and an autobiography out, ‘All in All.’

Stacy Keach‘s dance card is quite full these days.
“I have done four sitcoms in five weeks!” said the 72-year-old actor, who first demonstrated his comedic chops as Cheech and Chong’s nemesis Sgt. Stedenko in the 1978 stoner comedy “Up in Smoke.”Just last week, he appeared in the L.A. Theatre Works production of Chekhov’s “Uncle Vanya” at UCLA, and on Sunday he’ll be narrating Edgar Allan Poe‘s “The Tell-Tale Heart” at the “EEK! At the Greek” Halloween concert with the Symphony in the Glen Orchestra.
Keach brought poignancy to his role as a veteran plane named Skipper in “Planes,” Disney’s animated hit — he’ll be back for the sequel — and he has a showy supporting role as the boorish former business partner of Woody (Bruce Dern), an elderly man who believes he’s won $1 million in a sweepstakes, in Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” opening Nov. 22.
