Diminutive, rubber-faced, balding American character actor, a whiz at accents and eccentric characters, but also frequently cast as doctors. After a debut in the low-budget Scarecrow in a Garden of Cucumbers (1972), his quizzical features popped up in many more film cameos, including those in The Front (1976), Last Embrace (1979), All That Jazz (1979), Dressed to Kill (1980), I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can (1982), Ghost Busters (1984), Ishtar (1987), Running on Empty (1988), Funny About Love (1990), A Stranger Among Us (1992), Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), Lifebreath (1997), Looking for an Echo (2000), Bought & Sold (2003), Ira & Abby (2006), All Good Things (2010), Roadie (2011), Fading Gigolo (2013), A Most Violent Year (2014) and Licence Plates (2016), his last. At one time married to casting director Carol Grant, he became the longtime companion of actress Lois Smith, who survives him.
