As it happens, since playing the grungy newsroom photographer on the CBS series Lou Grant (1977-82), Anderson, 42, has become something of a shutterbug. Only now his pictures are mostly of his 8-year-old daughter and his wife, actress Kathy Connell. Professionally, Anderson will play a referee in The Break, with Martin Sheen, due out this fall. And on the political front, he volunteers for the Screen Actors Guild, which gives him a chance to keep up with old Lou Grant colleague Ed Asner, a former SAG president. Does Anderson ever miss the limelight? "Oh," he says with a wry grin, "we could always stand a little more of that."
When the clerk at the L.A. film-processing shop learned that Daryl Anderson's roll was over-exposed last month, he said, "Aren't you the Animal? After all those years, don't you know how to take pictures?"
