 REGIS PHILBIN ... 'MR. SATURDAY NIGHT'? --
 BILLY CRYSTAL GUESTS ON 'LIVE' FRIDAY, SEPT. 25
 NEW YORK, Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Milton Berle? Buddy Hackett? Don Rickles? How about Regis Philbin? Could Philbin be the inspiration for "Mr. Saturday Night"? While talking with Regis and co-host Kathie Lee Gifford on the popular talk show "Live With Regis and Kathie Lee," Billy Crystal clears the air regarding the origins of the "Mr. Saturday Night" title character in his upcoming movie.
 According to Crystal, the character is a composite of industry "old-timers," but no one individual served as the role model. Industry old-timers like Philbin, says Crystal.
 Crystal will discuss various aspects of his directorial debut including his adventures in directing more than 200 people after spending more than five hours in make-up to age his character some 35 years. He will also share some of his early career highlights with Philbin and Gifford.
 Tune in to "Live" on Friday, Sept. 25, to see if Philbin served as an inspiration for "Mr. Saturday Night," or if he only reigns as "Mr. Weekday Morning." Check local listings for "Live's" time and channel.
