Danny Wells

Actor

Born - 7 April 1941, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Died - 28 November 2013

Tall, bald, latterly bearded American character player, a relaxed portrayer of uncles, rabbis, waiters and bartenders. Born Jack Westelman, the actor came from stage to TV in the early 1970s, and made his film debut in The Strongest Man in the World in 1975. Much in demand for TV work - he was in two feature-length 'Columbos' - Wells also found time for more movies: Whiffs (1975), The Shaggy DA (1976), Goin' Coconuts (1978), Private Benjamin (1980), Body and Soul (1982), The Woman in Red (1984), Life Stinks (1991), Magnolia (1999), Protection (2001), Swindle (2002), The Last Kiss (2006), Textuality (2010) and Old Stock (2012), his last.
