Carl Reiner Says Having a Project Motivates Vibrant Longevity



(p. 6B) LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ask 12-time Emmy Award winner Carl Reiner how it feels to be nominated again, and he fires back a wisecrack.


. . .


Reiner is nominated as host-narrator of "If You're Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast," a documentary about how perennial high achievers, including Mel Brooks and Tony Bennett, both 92, stay vibrant.


. . .


Reiner, the oldest-ever Emmy nominee, is willing to look in the rearview mirror, but only to fuel new work.

"When I finish anything, I have to start a new project or I have no reason to get up. Most people are that way -- if they have something to do, they hang around," said Reiner.
