Bradley Whitford (Transparent, The West Wing, Billy Madison) is hosting the annual, televised Fourth of July celebration in DC for PBS. But he will likely get upstaged by Barry Manilow, Alabama, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robert Davi who will perform live.
Robert Davi is best known as an actor. He’s been in more than 130 films including the 1989 James Bond movie License to Kill, Die Hard, The Goonies, and Showgirls. (He usually plays the villain.) Davi made his movie debut in Contract On Cherry Street, in which he shared the screen with Frank Sinatra. The 62-year-old New Yorker also likes to sing — especially to sing Sinatra songs. On PBS’s ‘A Capitol Fourth’ Davi will sing a tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes. P.S. Whitford, a big liberal backer, probably won’t talk politics with Davi at the show. Davi is a staunch Republican.
