“So you thought The Muppet Show wanted Paul Simon to sing the works of Neil Diamond?”
Am I just spending more time at Wikipedia lately, or are there just more lines like this winner in the Paul Simon entry?
Simon has also dabbled in acting. He played music producer Tony Lacey in the 1977 Woody Allen film Annie Hall, and wrote and starred in 1980s One Trick Pony as Jonah Levin, a journeyman rock and roller. Paul Simon also appeared on The Muppet Show (the only episode to use only the songs of one songwriter, Simon).
And here you thought The Muppet Show wanted Paul Simon to sing the works of Neil Diamond! Or maybe a few Simon originals and then a couple Diane Warren tunes.
