Quarterback plunges into film acting LOS ANGELES (AP) Smoke curled menacingly into the top floor of a tall office building The workers franti- cally taped doors and cracks in a desperate effort to keep the deadly fumes out "We're going to a sec- retary cried. A co-worker shouted, "Somebody shut her Off-camera. Don Meredith stood by the doorway, a portrait in smoke-shrouded serenity, clutching a rug. "It's my security he grinned at a bystander Then on cue, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback plunged forward with his rug to block the smoke, supposed- ly from a fire several floors down that had trapped the top- floor workers during a Christ- mas party. The heroics were part of his tirst television feature film. The Only Way Is Down, in which Meredith portrays a spineless, womanizing ex- ecutive It will be on NBC-TV next season. Meredith, who was on ABC's NFL Monday Night Football for four seasons before quitting last March, now is under exclusive contract with NBC. HAS VARIED DUTIES The pact calls for the trim, tanned Texan to star in three TV movies a year for at least two years, appear in variety- specials, act as substitute host on the Tonight show and do sports commentary. The movie on which he's working is part of the new package of NBC World Pre- miere movies It's TV's contribution to the recent rash of hlms about men versus dis- asters The amiable Meredith almost balked at doing the NBC film. "He was taken aback at playing a bad said Stan Robertson. NBC's vice- president of film program- ming "He said, 'what about my I told him that if he wanted to grow as an actor he had to play all kinds of roles." "He wanted the role tem- pered some so that he was not so much of a bad guy. So we tempered it some." "I was honestly frightened by said Dandy Don, now 36. who in his playing days faced 280-pound linebackers. "I didn't know if I could do it." It's not Meredith's first plunge into the acting field. He has done four Police Story segments. With his drawl, his light brown hair won full, his six- foot-three, 200-pound frame, Meredith looks like a big, friendly sophisticated country boy who enjoys matching wits with city slickers His good looks are hampered only by a nose that appears to have been rudely introduced to a linebacker's elbow. LIVES IN ELEPHANT Meredith, who lives with his second wife in a Pennsylvania tbwn with the improbable name of Elephant, set passing records at Southern Methodist University and was the Cow- boys" top draft choice in 1960. While in pro football he pro- duced and starred in his own sports show. He quit the play- ing field in 1968 and hooked up with ABC in the broadcast booth with Howard Cosell and Frank Gifford. The Texan's quick humor and inability to regard the game with awe led to ac- cusations he was a clown and a cutup. "I was just having a good drawled Meredith Meredith's NBC contract calls for one of his movies to be a pilot for a series. "I don't know if I want to do a series or not, but if things work out well it would be Meredith said.
