What Happened To The Cast Of It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World?

Paul Picerni The Detective?

Paul Picerni’s career spanned nearly four decades and he appeared in more than 60 movies and 450 television shows. The New York Times wrote, “His best-known film character was the romantic young man in the 1953 horror movie House of Wax, one of the first 3-D productions by a major studio.”

Picerni was offered the role of one of the detectives at Simler Grogan’s crash site. However, he was wildly unavailable so the series costar Nicholas Georgiade was cast in place of Picerni. What do you think? Would you have wanted to see him in that spot?
