"Tell Them You Mean Business"

You've seen the ads featuring Man From U.N.C.L.E. actor Robert Vaughn on behalf of lawyers; the ones with the signature line, "Tell them you mean business."

Turns out that Mr. Vaughn is starring in a series premiering on cable's AMC called "Hustle." Can you guess the occupation of Mr. Vaughn's character?

A con man.

For those who think such a role might smack of typecasting and even for those of you who don't - today's
Wall Street Journal contains an entertaining interview with the actor who played Napoleon Solo in the hot 1960's series.

By the way, Mr. Vaughn's commercials were the topic of an Indiana Supreme Court disciplinary decision in 2003 in The Matter of Keller & Keller.

For a good description of the commercial see Keith Cummings' column here.
