Silver out of ‘Closet’

Thesp moving on to legiter 'Bill Graham,' 'Festival' pic

Ron Silver will bow out of the NBC sitcom “Veronica’s Closet” at the end of this season.

The Tony Award-winning Silver is moving on to Los Angeles and Broadway productions of his one-man show, “Bill Graham Presents,” and a role in Henry Jaglom’s new pic, “Festival.” He’ll also be seen in the upcoming Showtime telefilm “In the Company of Spies.”

Silver joined the cast of the Warner Bros. TV comedy this season, becoming foil to series star Kirstie Alley in his role as Alec, the business partner and nemesis of Alley’s lead character, Ronnie.

“Ron Silver was a huge asset to the show. I am forever grateful,” said Alley. “He has the mind of Lenny Bruce and the feet of James Brown.”

Series exec producers Marta Kauffman, David Crane and Kevin Bright praised Silver for his “creativity and professionalism.” Silver may yet return to the show for selected guest shots, although there’s still no official word from NBC on whether “Veronica’s Closet” will be picked up for a third season.

Silver is repped by Andrea Eastman and Brian Mann of ICM and David Seltzer of Industry Entertainment.
