Mini Bio (1)
Broadway, motion picture, television, and voice actor from the 1950s to the 1980s, distinguished by a deep, resonant voice. He started his acting career on stage at age 20 in "Tobacco Road," and on CBS TV's "Mr. I. Magination." He was a character actor and puppeteer for "Space Funnies" (in the role of Captain Jett) from 1955 to 1960. Probably more famous for playing Michael Caine's agent in the movie Deathtrap (1982) and the junk dealer Mr. Farber in The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974), opposite a then-new talent, Richard Dreyfuss.
Although his movie, television, and voice work career were extensive, his heart and soul belonged to Broadway and the theater, and he eventually received a Tony nomination for the 1972-73 production of "Lenny" for his multiple characterizations (he played nine different roles). Other works include "Shivers" (1975), "You Light Up My Life" (1977), "Diary of a Bachelor" (1964), and a guest-starring role as a villain in an episode of the Bloodhound Gang segment on the first season of 3-2-1 Contact (1980)
