Actor | Writer | Producer
Was also a social worker (he headed New York's Vera Institute of Justice) and an advertising copywriter prior to pursuing a career as an actor.
They killed my character off and, as God would have it, just when they told me I would never work again I got cast in a little program called Roots (1977) and, as they would say, the rest is history.
During the '70s, he often played characters much older than his real-life age.
