James Garner has taken life a little easier since he underwent two heart operations in 1988, but he's not out of the picture.

"I'm just not working as hard as I used to," the actor said in the Nov. 24 issue of TV Guide. "I'm getting more picky."Garner plays a retired judge asked to champion the cause of a black veteran in the NBC movie "Decoration Day," which airs Dec. 2.
