Personal Quote:

I don't audition, because I don't like it. When you own a store, you sell products, but when you audition, you are trying to sell yourself. If they turn you down, they turn you down. I will not have it. I tell the people, 'Look, you're not buying a house. Take a chance.' See more »

Trivia:

In 2007, the 85-year-old character actor appeared in David Ives' play, "New Jerusalem", at the Classic Stage Company in New York City. Finkel played a synagogue board member in the show, which focused on the 1656 banishment of philosopher Baruch de Spinoza from Amsterdam's Jewish community. See more »
