(26 March 1934 – 29 June 2023)

Mike Nichols called him “the best actor in America.” He was often one of the few good things about the films he landed, but in his best ones (see below) he was a veritable virtuoso. He generally took ‘small’ roles and made them into brilliant little portraits. Watch him in the original version of The In-Laws, or Glengarry Glen Ross, and you see a man with a barely bottled hysteria.
