Lean American character player with inquisitive features and receding dark hair, best remembered as the harassed Captain McNeil in TV's Kojak. Brought up the Hell's Kitchen area of Manhattan, he had become a TV actor by 1950 and remained largely employed in that medium, playing mainly blue-collar types. There were a few films too, after he reached his forties and took on a more weathered look: Lilies of the Field (1963), Lord Love a Duck (1966), Counterpoint (1967), Take the Money and Run (1969), ...tick...tick...tick (1970), Bananas (1971), Fuzz (1972), Cleopatra Jones (1973), The Super Cops (1974), Breakout (1975), Saying Kaddish (1991), Deconstructing Harry (1997), The Kings of Brooklyn (2004), Fireflies (2006) and The Pack (2010), his last.
