Five Emmys, a Tony, a Grammy – and he's won the hearts of millions. Now, Dick Van Dyke is to receive his acting union's highest honor: the Screen Actors Guild's Life Achievement Award.
The tireless actor, 86, who's as comfortable with doing slapstick as he is with being suave, will be honored in January for his 60-year-plus career and his lifelong humanitarian accomplishments.
"Dick is the consummate entertainer – an enormously talented performer whose work has crossed nearly every major category of entertainment,” says SAG-AFTRA co-president Ken Howard.
