Q&A with Terry Kiser following 6:30 viewing of Farmer of the Year

Terry Kiser is, of course, best known as the Bernie Lomax, the boss who just won’t stay dead in the hilarious Weekend at Bernie's films. Kiser recently played memorable and heart-wrenching roles in two feature films directed by JW Myers, The Pledge and A Christmas Tree Miracle. Terry currently serves on our Advisory Board as a Talent Consultant and Ambassador. Terry will eventually be joining the Season One cast of Transition in a pivotal role.


Terry was born in Omaha, Nebraska. He studied acting in New York at the famous Actors Studio, where he was mentored by legendary method acting teacher Lee Strasberg. He got his start on the daytime soap opera The Doctors. He made his film debut as a preacher in Paul Newman’s Rachel, Rachel. He gave an especially strong and engaging performance in a rare substantial starring role in the little seen drama Lapin 360. Other memorable roles include Chuck Norris' ill-fated cop partner Dave Pierce in An Eye for an Eye, Starflight: The Plane That Couldn’t Land, From A Whisper to a Scream, Friday the 13th Part VII, and Mannequin 2: On the Move.


Terry has hundreds of television credits. Just a few of his more noteworthy ones include a series regular on Carol Burnett’s Carol & Company, Will & Grace, Walker, Texas Ranger, Baywatch Nights, Dream On, The Golden Girls, L.A. Law, Hunter, Murder, She Wrote, Riptide, Knight Rider, The Fall Guy, Magnum P.I., Hill Street Blues, CHiPs, Diff’rent Strokes, All in the Family, Maude, Hawaii Five-O, The Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Baretta. Terry has also performed on Broadway in Neil Simon’s God's Favorite (for which he received a Tony nomination), Shelter, The Castro Complex, and Paris Is Out!. Terry won both an Obie and a Theater World Award for Fortune and Men's Eyes.


Terry recently enjoyed a resurgence of his Bernie Lomax fame for a new generation when fans attempted to replicate “The Bernie Dance” on YouTube, and the videos went viral, with well over seventeen million views, collectively. The Oakland A’s used this as their 7th inning stretch motivation during a recent playoff stretch run, and Terry was invited to sing the National Anthem (as the late Bernie Lomax) at a game.


Terry brings a lifetime of experience in the entertainment industry to the Advisory Board, and we are honored to have him be a part of this exciting adventure. Terry warms up the room with his infectious energy, and we are honored to have him as an ambassador for Transition.
