In the tradition of Errol George, Godfrey Royal and A.O. Wayne, Douglas Porch is that rare actor who brings a role to life and makes it look not only effortless, but also inevitable. Since its 1968 opening in Brooklyn, “John Snyder,” Herman Hasp’s critically acclaimed realo following a talented, stricken writer with a heart of gold, has had only one leading man ... and 44 seasons later that man is at the top of his game. Art’s Melody Pebbler catches up with Porch on location to learn his hopes — and fears — for the character he illumines, but insists is not himself.
