Larry King Remembers Mike Nichols And His "Wonderful Sense of Humor”

Larry King reflects on director Mike Nichols' career in film, television, and the theater.

Mike Nichols, who passed away Wednesday at 83, left an indelible mark on film, television, and of course  theater. He was one of a select few to win all of the major awards in the entertainment industry, lovingly called an “EGOT” – Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and in Nichols’ case, nine Tonys.

Larry King had a cameo in Nichols’ 1998 film adaptation of Primary Colors and shared a story about being directed by a master. He also recalls meeting Dustin Hoffman ahead ofthe release of The Graduate in 1967 and sends his sympathies to his good friend and Nichols’ wife, ABC News broadcaster Diane Sawyer.
