Barry Williams still a bunch of fun

Barry Williams doesn’t mind fans calling him Greg Brady. He embraces it. The actor/musician/author, 56, did a meet and greet over the weekend at Seminole Casino Hollywood, hosting a Brady Brunch trivia game. We caught up with Williams, who hosts The Real Greg Brady’s Totally 70s Pop Quiz Starring Barry Williams on Sirius/XM radio.

What kind of things do fans ask you about?

Usually, ‘Whatever happened to Tiger?’ or ‘What did you really do with your TV mom Carol and TV sister Marcia?’

You were at a casino. Are you a gambling man at all?

Absolutely! I love blackjack and roulette. There is nothing better than taking home money you didn’t earn. I call it funny money.

Do you keep in touch with your fellow ‘Brady Bunch’ cast members?

I keep in touch with them all; we are still very close. I recently appeared on a segment with

Florence Henderson

on

Dancing With The Stars

, I see

Chris Knight

often as I do

Mike Lookinland

and

Susan Olsen

. In May, I will be with

Eve Plumb

as I make a cameo in her play on Broadway,

Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating, & Marriage

.

We hear you are doing a Bigfoot movie; can you tell us a little about that project?

It’s in the early development stages; there isn’t even a script yet. But I know that my costar

Danny Bonaduce

and I will have a great time and make a fun movie as long as I get to win this time — as opposed to what happened during our [2002] bout on

Celebrity Boxing

.

You can’t help but see the news of child stars hitting problems. What is the best piece of advice you could give them to stay stable?

Surround yourself with good people, stay busy and put your time and energy in your work. It’s helpful to have goals and avoid drugs.

Do you think TV has lost its innocence?

TV never really was all that innocent; we just pretended.
