Sid Olsen IS William Devane (I think), but I cannot find any confirmation anywhere on the Web. IMDB does not list Devane in the credits for the episode "Something My Gynocolgist Said". And I can't find anything anywhere that says so, but I'm pretty sure its Devane. And his cameo role as huckster Sid Olsen is fabulous. I'd really like to see him in a recurring role on the show. His dispeptic humor is classic. The guy's a real pro.

Susie, if EW is correct, it is eerie how the made up Cryer came across as an older Devane.
