Jerry Maren!

Leonard, Jerry, Julius, and Arthur

Actor Jerry Maren welcomed you to Munchkinland for the last time last week, at the age of 98! Maren was the last surviving cast member of the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, portraying the green clad member of the Lollipop Guild. Perhaps less interesting to most, but not to this guy, is that Maren also appears to be the last surviving cast member of the later, lesser Marx Brothers effort At the Circus, which is still eminently watchable no matter what anyone tells you. Sure, it’s the like ninth best Groucho-Chico-Harpo-and-sometimes-Zeppo film, depending on your opinion of Go West, but it does feature the all-time classic “Lydia the Tattooed Lady,” which gives it the nod over movies like The Big Store and Room Service, anyway. But I digress! Maren has a few dozen credits to his name, including popping up on episodes of The Odd Couple, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, and Seinfeld!

Okay, okay, he was also in The Wizard of Oz

Maren spent all five of his Death Pool seasons with Capone, who nabs the 12 points today on his third death! This jumps him to tenth overall in what’s a relatively slow start for Capone, given his solid track record in recent years. Don’t let this guy get warmed up! Well done!

Replacement pick due by next Wednesday!
