Bob Newhart in ‘Legally Blonde 2’

Bob Newhart (left) gets his tie adjusted by Reese Witherspoon in the film Legally Blonde 2. The 2003 sequel starred Witherspoon as a legal whiz, and Newhart as some kind of doorman or band conductor, apparently. The complicated plot involved a gay chihuahua, cosmetics testing, and the machinations of legislative bill-writing in Washington, D.C. Bob Newhart was born in 1929, so he turned 74 the year that Legally Blonde 2 was released.
