Personal Quote:

I love people. I keep telling performers, 'Not only do you owe them a good performance, you also owe them love. If you love them, they love you 10 times more. It is not the producers that pay your wages; they do. If they don't like you, you're not going to get work. But if they love you, they'll put you in comfort.' See more »


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 »
