Actor Ed Asner visits Wilmington with a traveling theatre group

Aspiring actors got up close and personal with an industry icon Monday night. Ed Asner, well known for his work on Mary Tyler Moore and Lou Grant, is in Wilmington with a traveling theatre group. He and fellow cast members spoke on a panel at the WHQR studios. The actors are performing in The Great Tennessee Monkey Trial, which tells the story of the 1925 trial that challenged a Tennessee law that forbade teaching evolution instead of creationism. The play is Wednesday night at UNCW.
