BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — The original “Grease” film is older than any of the cast members of “Grease: Live,” TV’s live take on the musical airing Sunday on Fox. But the stars still have memories of the 1978 film.
Here’s what they had to say:
— “I always knew the movie as the musical with the guy from ‘Face Off.’ That’s how I knew it as a kid.” — David Del Rio, who plays Putzie.
— “I say it’s the movie with the guy from ‘Broken Arrow.'” — Andrew Call, who plays Sonny.
