Dick Van Dyke Heading to Hallmark Channel's SIGNED, SEALED & DELIVERED
Deadline reports that stage and screen legend Dick Van Dyke will guest star on the Hallmark Channel drama/comedy SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED. The 88-year-old will portray the team's supervisor in Episodes 3 and 4 of the series.
According to the report, the revolving role will feature a different TV icon every two episodes. Actress Valerie Harper will kick off the role for the first two episodes.
Holder of five Emmys, a Tony Award and a Grammy, Van Dyke still possesses the zest for life that first propelled him into the limelight more than a half-century ago with the Broadway and film versions of "Bye Bye Birdie," the seminal '60s situation comedy "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and the film classic "MARY POPPINS" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."
