Actor | Soundtrack
During the 1940s, Schallert was a member of Los Angeles' 'The Group Theatre'--a West Coast version of New York's 'The Actor's Studio'--where he appeared in a production of W. Somerset Maugham's "Rain" directed by Charles Chaplin.
I've never been single-minded in my pursuit of acting as a career. Whatever it was that got me hired and kept me working was probably just me.
Frequently cast in 'Joe Dante' films.
