James Wainwright to star in 'Jigsaw' series By Charles Witbcck HOLLYWOOD-Last season Universal Studio made nine pilots for the ABC network and sold just one, "Jigsaw," starring James Wainwright, which will be part of the new Thursday night offering, "The Men," a trilogy that Includes "The Delphi Bureau" with Laurence Luckinbill, and Robert Conrad's "Assignment: Vienna." An account of an independently-minded p o l i c e lieutenant running a Missing Persons Bureau, the two- hour "Jigsaw" pilot aired EMPIRE DINER "Famous for Good Food" 194 Summers Street last M a r c h , and was promptly snapped up by the network, since It contained signs of quality and an ar- r e s t i n g performance by Wainwright. Academy Award-winning director Bill Fiedkin ("The French Connection") saw the show and was impressed to the extent of offering Wainwright the role of a Jesuit priest in his forthcoming movie based.cn Bill Blally's "The Exorcist." But Friedkin lost out to the network, an Ironic touch, since Wainwright took on the pilot for one reason; he hoped to acquire a movie role out of the "Jigsaw" exposure. A lanky type with light blue eyes and a sloping potato face, Wainwright works with intense concentration of "Jigsaw" sets, blocking the world out, forgetting visiting wife Janet for a moment as he becomes Lt. Frank Dain of the Missing Persons Bureau, a man like Wainwright, abandoned In infancy and raised In foster A McNIEL FENCE -Protects and Beautifies Your Home Resin-clad Stee OLORBOND WIRE Th» Colorbond Fence System gi ves you th« strength of Heel, th» beauty of color, ond the lasting economy of rust and corrosion-proof vinyl clad jteil--. sSZi'JEmr C | in 'L n8 ?

In this show, the knowledgeable lead is having his say in all matters. He refused to use light filters, shoot night for day, or wear much makeup. W o r k i n g closely with producer Stanley Kallis, Wainwright has voice in casting, he Improvises moments, and has acquired the youngest crew on the studio lot, a fierce group willing to test new directors, and one that works till 4 a.m., then sets up the next day at 2 p.m. Total involvement apparently is paying off. Wainwright, a harsh critic, claims the difference between the pilot and fall episodes is like night and day --an old story, but perhaps true here. His problem now centers on stamina. Can he keep up the pace to maintain the standards he insists upon? A wanderer with Marine Corps training, Wainwright worked on a Mississippi River shrimp boat, and dealt cards for a Chicago gambler before gravitating to New York's Actors Studio. Under Lee Strasberg, he acquired technique, then came West in 1967 to test for "In Cold Blood." Since then the actor has Jumped from cowboys to killers in more than 40 TV shows, and Is now occupying the "sensitive man" category. TV Movies Tuesday "The Sandpiper," (1965) **, 11:30 p.m., 0 with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. · » * "Hurricane Smith," (1952) **, 11:30 p.m., |B with John Ireland and Yvonne DeCarlo. · · * "The Last Adventure," 11:80 p.m., Q with Alain Delon and Joanna Shimkus. "I want to play anything that excites me," Wainwright said, having found his niche In life. Convinced that actors are born not made, he said, "if anybody wants to act, he should get up and do it. Then one should have the relatively good judgement to step down if he's bad." Relatively good Judge- ment, however, doesn't pass for a common trait among Hollywood practitioners. Wainwright may have been born with that gift, too, a quality that came in handy during his Marine Corps days as he learned th« art of playing stud poker, and became a very good gambler. He can sit in a card game and "can clear out three guys," or visit Las Vegas and make his expenses, though he prefers not to play against the house. Rare visits to a race track find him at the cashier's window collecting on percentage bets. "I only gamble for a kind of enjoyment," Wainwright said. "I don't play a regular game, and-luckily, I am spared that great need to gamble. It's a terrible disease to have." Instead the actor must check his all-consuming Interest in acting, and is . aware of the problem. "My concentration on a charac- - ter has gotten to the point where it's masochistic and destructive," he said. "You - put impossible demands on yourself, and you keep going when your body says quit." Wainwright faces this inner-drive battle on "Jigsaw," and should learn to pace himself over tb« long haul. On the other hand, the s t a r 's total involvement promises to lift the ihow above the ordinary. Tune in on the Thursday! his show is on and watch a man in love with his Job. ,,.; SUNDAY GAZETTE-MAIL 9
