Actor Ed Asner brings cancer education mission to Buffalo, Roswell Park

Actor Ed Asner, currently touring a one-man comedy-drama about prostate cancer, visited Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center on Friday to shine a light on the need for early detection.

The former star of the 1970s hit TV show, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” and its spinoff “Lou Grant,” channeled his famous character’s cantankerous personality with a cagey understatedness and ever-present gleam in his eye as he learned about Roswell Park’s robotic and laparoscopic surgery equipment.
