Personal Quote:

Anyone who ever plays Tevye should be thankful to Zero Mostel. He gave us all room and I know I wouldn't have done the movie without the advantage of a year's rehearsal on stage.

Trivia:

Was nominated for Broadway's 1991 Tony Award as Best Actor (Musical) for a revival of "Fiddler on the Roof," a role he had previously played twenty years earlier in an Oscar-nominated performance in the film version of the same title, Fiddler on the Roof (1971). See more »
