 Jason, David   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Jason's histrionic instincts are basically comic, and the majority of his roles have been in the situation comedy format.
Jason's skill was to interweave the opposing forces of selflessness and selfishness, working-class background and pseudo-middle-class tastes, brotherly condescension and "paternal" devotion into a successful balance.
This is perhaps Jason's greatest acting challenge yet, for it largely denies him the "punctuation" of comic acting, the rhythm of regular comic pay-offs in any length of dialogue or action, instead demanding a slow building, a gradual revelation of character, as each long episode augments the previous.
