Comrade Gorbachev was once a Hollywood ‘contender’? PART III

Would you believe folks, the author has discovered yet another television and entertainment industry personality who – in retrospect- though both lauded and despised in equal measure, was portrayed by the identical host actor who was also recently identified as having brought to life the historical characterization of the former Soviet president, Mikhail Gorbachev?
