Q Whatever happened to the actor who played TV's Benson?
—Carter Glines, Covington, La.

"These days, I am enjoying sitting on my duff, just relaxing," says Robert Guillaume, 80. His retirement is well earned after a career of nearly 100 movie, television and stage parts. Most recently, the St. Louis native taped a video introduction for the season-one DVD release of Benson, the hit TV comedy that spun off the ABC-TV primetime series Soap and aired from 1979 to 1986.
