Question: This has been bugging me for years. Is the voice on those Country Crock commercials the same guy who played Mr. Carlin on The Bob Newhart Show? Eric S., Seattle
Televisionary: Sharp ears, Eric. The voice is indeed that of actor Jack Riley, who played the neurotic Elliott Carlin, a regular patient of Dr. Bob Hartley's, on the hit '70s series. You may have also heard his voice work on Rugrats and its spin-off, All Grown Up.
