Paul Lynde Gets an Afterlife Encore from Michael Airington

Written by | Entertainment, Screen

Paul Lynde

Michael Airington is the only performer authorized by the estate of the late Paul Lynde to play the legendary Center Square from The Hollywood Squares.

Lynde was a larger-than-life performer who came to fame via Broadway’s Bye Bye Birdie, then found a home on the small screen as Samantha Stevens’ snarky Uncle Arthur on Bewitched, then found his sweet spot lobbing one-liners back at host Peter Marshall in The Hollywood Squares game show, which aired weekday mornings for more than a decade.
