Castellano, who was part of one kind of family in "The Godfather," spent his summer in an entirely different kind of family. He started in ABC's hot-weather series. The Super, which did so well it could become a regular on the network's schedule next January The series had originally been intended for the fall season but was rushed into production for July and August. "When I heard that," Castellano says, "I made some impossible demands and they met them all. But we had terrible script problems because we just weren't ready. It's done well, despite that, and now we're pretty sure that we'll go on again in January, possibly sooner." When he works, he loses weight, so he's down now to a relatively svelte 260, as opposed to the 295 he scaled when he did "The Godfather." The middle initial S. which he uses doesn't stand for Slim, however. He likes to say, grandly, that it stands for Salange, and he even got Dick Cavett to fall for that tale on Dick's talk show Richard Castellano But the truth is that his middle name is Salvatore. "My father wants me to use it," he says, because Salvatore was my oldest brother's name. He died before I was born He died from a kick in the stomach when he was 15 we lived in Hell's Kitchen, a tough section of New York." His is a loyal family, like the Corleones of "The Godfather," although engaged in more peaceful pursuits. Castellano hired his daughter on The Super. Margaret is as slender as he is big and he calls her Little Mouse. He's loyal to his friends, too. The girl who played his wife on The Super, Ardell Sheridan, is an old friend, and she's been his on-stage wife several times before, notably in "The Godfather." But he isn't as kindly disposed to producers. In fact, he gets angry about producers. He says, "they don't give the actors their fair share. And they don't make enough pictures. There's an audience out there, crying to be entertained, but the producers don't make pictures. "I get mad when I find myself acting with guys who are just hamburgers, when a lot of fine actors can't find jobs. George Sanders cuts his wrists because he can't find a job and I have to act with hamburgers." WMiftl IO fkf U 10 1H 1111 eelted GEGB PHONE RHONE For A Loan!
