When the "House M.D." actress married actor David Cross, 48, on October 6, she arrived at the ceremony in a red canoe. Clutching a yellow bouquet, Tamblyn, 29, was escorted by her father, actor Russ Tamblyn — and they were both barefoot for their walk down the aisle.

I keep seeing this photo popping up on various sites with the label "Russ Tamblyn, Richard Beymer & Natalie Wood".

Anyone with decent vision can clearly tell that that is most certainly not Russ Tamblyn, it doesn't even look remotely like him. It's Tommy Abbott who played Gee-Tar :

Interview: Actor Russ Tamblyn Tells Classic Hollywood Stories

by PatrickMcD


CHICAGO – Russ Tamblyn has seen it all. In a show business career that is now over 60 years old, he has gone from child star (”Father of the Bride”) to Oscar nominee (”Peyton Place”) to classic role (”West Side Story”) and cult hero (”Twin Peaks”). With a span like that, he has collected a few stories.

Tamblyn made an appearance in Chicago in 2010 at the Hollywood Palms in Naperville, Illinois, and did an interview with HollywoodChicago.com regarding the 50th Anniversary of the film “West Side Story.” After talking about that experience, he began to reminisce about his other career adventures. In a talk that lasted close to an hour, he spoke about the transition from child to adult star, encounters with Elvis Presley and adventures with rocker Neil Young, director David Lynch and actor Glenn Ford.

Interviews: Stars of ‘West Side Story’ on its 50th Anniversary

By PATRICK McDONALD
Senior Staff Writer
HollywoodChicago.com

CHICAGO – The legend of the 1961 film version of the Broadway sensation “West Side Story” grows as the years go by. Who better to remember that legend 50 years later than three of the stars of that Academy Award winning Best Picture – Rita Moreno (Anita), George Chakiris (Bernardo) and Russ Tamblyn (Riff).

The film version of “West Side Story” had it all. There was controversy – star Natalie Wood (Maria) was neither Puerto Rican nor sang her own songs. There was art – the classic, unforgettable songs of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, plus the athletic and graceful choreography of Jerome Robbins. And finally, there were the awards. TEN Oscars including Best Supporting nods for both Moreno and Chakiris, in addition to the first shared Best Director award for Robbins and co-director Robert Wise.

HollywoodChicago.com got the privilege last year of interviewing three of the main stars of West Side Story – Rita Moreno, George Chakiris and Russ Tambyn – as they reminisced on their participation in one of the most iconic movie musicals ever put to screen. The good, the bad and the ugly came out of these sessions, in accordance with the hindsight and perspective of 50 years.
