Seymour Cassel

Actor

Born - 22 January 1935, Detroit, Michigan, USA
Died - 7 April 2019

Stocky, twinkle-eyed, plum-nosed, often moustachioed, rather disreputable-looking American actor with straight light-brown hair, often seen as scruffy rebels in his earlier years, when he was much associated with actor-director John Cassavetes, whose film Faces (1968) gave Cassel his only Oscar nomination. Later he played smart-Alec criminals, with the once long and straggly hair cut down to bushy brevity. Scores of film appearances included those in Shadows (1959), Murder Inc (1960), Too Late Blues (1961), The Webster Boy (1962), The Nutty Professor (1963), The Killers (1964), Coogan's Bluff (1968), The Revolutionary (1970), Minnie and Moskowitz (1971), Death Game (1974), The Last Tycoon (1976), Convoy (1978), The Mountain Men (1980), Double Exposure (1982), Love Streams (1984), Tin Men (1987), Colors (1988), Dick Tracy (1990), Mobsters: The Evil Empire (1991), Honeymoon in Vegas (1992), In the Soup (1992), Indecent Proposal (1993), Dead Presidents (1995), Obsession (1997), Rushmore (1998), Sex & Bullets (2000), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), Sonny (2002), Stuck on You (2003), The Life Aquatic (2004), Hollywood Dreams (2006), Little New York (2009), Broken Kingdom (2012), Lucky Dog (2014) and Time Framed (2019), his last. He died from Alzheimer's Disease.
