'Sound of Music' Actor: They Left Me Out Of Reunion

10/30/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Truhitte -- who played the young Nazi soldier Rolfe in "The Sound of Music" -- is screaming from the hilltops ... devastated he wasn't invited to the "Music" reunion special on "Oprah."

Daniel's lederhosen are in a wad over the "Oprah" special that aired on Thursday -- which was billed as the first time in 45 years that the "entire cast" has been in the same place. O featured all eight members of the Von Trapp family, plus Julie Andrews.

But Daniel -- who played the love interest of Liesl Von Trapp and famously sang "Sixteen Going on Seventeen" -- tells TMZ he doesn't understand why he was left out, saying "I was the male juvenile lead, a main part of the story ... it's beyond me." 

Daniel groused, "How can you not include Rolfe?"

A rep for the show tells TMZ, "Our show was a reunion of the von Trapp 'family.' Mr. Truhitte's character was not part of that group."

It wasn't advertised as a reunion of the Von Trapp Family it was advertised as a reunion of the ENTIRE cast of The Sound of Music.

He has a legitimate complaint. #5 is right-it was pitched as a reunion of the whole cast.

Oh come on, #8. "a legitimate complaint"? Were all the other actors who had speaking/singing parts there? Only then would he have a 'legitimate complaint' When people talk about The Sound Of Music, they are talking about the Von Trapp family.

I beg to differ #9. When I think Sound of Music i think of Von Trapp family AND Rolfe. So no, your statement is incorrect. You may want to change your statement so it doesnt seem like you are trying to talk about anyone and everyone who has ever spoken about the movie, thanks :-)

If is was "billed as the first time in 45 years that the "entire cast" has been in the same place"- then it was false advertisement. Isn't there a law against false advertisement. Daniel Truhitte was very important to the plot line, I feel. I would sue...but that's just me.

The nuns and military officers weren't invited either. But they should have invited him if he really looks that good.

I FOUND THE WHOLE SHOW A YAWNER! TOTALLY BORING UNLESS YOU'RE OF THE OVER 65 CROWD WHO GIVES A CRAP. I SAW PART OF THE SHOW AND SWITCHED CHANNELS. FIRST OFF IT'S BORING - ALL REMINISCENT SHOWS ARE AND THE LONGER THE PERIOD THE MORE BORING ESPECIALLY WHEN 75% OF THE CAST ARE NOW SENIORS. JULIE ANDREWS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO IS REALLY DOING ANYTHING THESE DAYS. MORE INTERESTING TO INTERVIEW HER ON WHY PEEPS WALKED OUT OF HER LONDON 02 SHOW THIS SUMMER CUZ SHE CANT SING... THAN THIS NAPFEST!! TRUTH.

"It wasn't advertised as a reunion of the Von Trapp Family it was advertised as a reunion of the ENTIRE cast of The Sound of Music."

That's very true. He may have a legitimate complaint, in fact all the actors/actresses that are still alive in the sound of music movie may have one. Actually, I think Daniel Truhitte is being a big baby and needs to grow up. He wasn't the main character and only had four small scenes. (delivering telegram-singing 16 going on 17 duet, pebble thrown at the window and the last scene during the Von Trapp's escape.)

ps.
I saw the movie two Easters ago on TV, love it and went out and brought the DVD a little over a year ago and had it ever since. :) 5 stars musical movie!
