Amazing Stories from the History of Science: “His polished performance so impressed the audience that nobody noticed that the man standing at the lectern wasn???t just Myron L. Fox from the Albert Einstein School of Medicine: he was also the attorney Amos Feders from ???Falcon Crest??? and the vet Dr Benson from ???Columbo???, who looked after the inspector???s dog. Myron L. Fox???s real name was Michael Fox, and he was an actor … and he didn???t know the first thing about game theory.”

A journalist later wrote in the Los Angeles Times: “There are implications in this study, though, that even its instigators have not perceived. If an actor makes a better teacher, why not a better congressman, or even a better President?” Seven years later, Ronald Reagan became the US President.
