Glowering, heavyweight American character star, in films from his mid twenties, but perhaps best remembered for playing detective Nero Wolfe in a series of more than two dozen feature-length thrillers for TV in the early 2000s - a role he seemed born to play. His first movie was Me in 1975. Some of the more notable ones that followed included Nothing Personal (1980), Death Hunt (1981), WarGames (1983), Harry & Son (1984), The Bedroom Window (1987), Twins (1988), Mr Destiny (1990), Dances with Wolves (1990), My Cousin Vinny (1992), Whale Music (1994), Devil in a Blue Dress (1995), CutThroat Island (1995), The Sweet Hereafter (1997), The Mask of Zorro (1998), Entrapment (1999), Hostage (2002), Being Julia (2004), Static (2008) and Conduct Unbecoming (2010), his last. He died on his 61st birthday from kidney failure and a heart valve infection, survived by his second wife, actress Susannah Hoffmann.
