    So John Colicos was the original choice for Big Chicken? That’s something new. Glad that didn’t work out.

    Colicos was terrific in S2 "The One With The Gun" but he would have been terribly miscast for "Big Chicken." (I will always associate Colicos with "Battlestar Galactica")

    John Colicos was in commercials for Midas Muffler around 1980. You can see one of them on YouTube:



    I remember when I went to see the 1980 horror film The Changeling (starring George C. Scott), which was filmed in the Vancouver area around this time. Colicos played a police detective in this show.

    When he first showed up on screen, the audience went wild with laughter, because they recognized Colicos from his muffler ads!
