Gary Cole Dreaming Of A Cure For Autism

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some people dream of an acting career, but some Hollywood actors are going to be acting out dreams.

This Monday (Sept. 18), actors like James Denton, Elizabeth Perkins and Gary Cole will be acting out the dreams of famous folks as part of a fundraiser in Los Angeles being held for the Cure Autism Now Foundation.

Cole – who played Mike Brady in the Brady Bunch movies – will be portraying some actual dreams of Abe Lincoln and golfer Jack Nicklaus.

The event is important to Cole because his 15-year-old daughter, Mary, has autism.

Cole says having a daughter with the disorder has taught him that some people perceive things in a different way so he’s learned how to deliver “lessons in a way she can process.”

It hasn’t been easy but he says it helped when he figured out “how to see things through her eyes.”

It also helped his acting because, he admits, “seeing things through others’ eyes is what we do as actors.”
