David Leisure starred on Empty Nest as the annoying neighbor Charley Dietz.
He landed the job after gaining national exposure as the character Joe Isuzu in a long series of wacky commercials for the Isuzu automobile company in the mid-80s.
A career arc I’m sure Isaiah Mustafa is looking to duplicate.
FUN THING TO DO: Imagine Empty Nest stars David Leisure and Richard Mulligan playing golf together.
I mean, “Leisure” … and “Mulligan.” Come on people, these jokes write themselves. (What? I don’t get it. There was no joke.)
