‘Men of a Certain Age’ trio stage benefit

Bakula, Braugher, Romano to tee off for SAG health fund

Men of a Certain Age” stars Scott Bakula, Andre Braugher and Ray Romano are teeing up an April 12 benefit for the nonprofit SAG Foundation’s Catastrophic Health Fund.

The thesps are hosting the inaugural “Actors Fore Actors” event at the Lakeside Golf Club in Toluca Lake. Johnny Depp’s already onboard as a sponsor, and Bakula told Daily Variety that he’s hoping to generate more traction among other high-profile thesps and corporate sponsors amid the current tough economic times.

“It’s a good way to mark the 25th anniversary of the SAG Foundation, and it’s a good excuse to play golf on a work day,” he added.

Ron Perlman’s already onboard to participate, noting that Lakeside has a long showbiz history as the home course for Bob Hope, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. “I love the game of golf — I wish it were mutual,” Perlman said. “What we’re trying to do is get the upper echelon to focus on this event as a way to help those actors who haven’t been as fortunate.”
