With the addition of one of my favorite comic actors, Jeffrey Tambor, to the Recycled Dad Index, Van Morrison falls to second place for virility and Garrison Keillor falls to second place for recycledness. That’s right, George Sr. from “Arrested Development/Hank from “Larry Sanders”/Jinx from “Mr. Mom” is #1, no matter what the criterion is.
Tambor’s recycledness score (widest age gap between any two consecutive children) is an approximation; I could only find the year his first child, Molly, was born, not the day. But even if I’d worst-cased it (Dec. 31), Tambor would still beat Keillor by 0.36 years (more than 4 months) for recycledness.
