Lloyd was raised in New Canaan, Connecticut.


TRIVIA:
  • Uncle of 'Sam Lloyd (I)' (qv).
  • In a scene in _Back to the Future (1985)_ (qv), his character Dr. Emmett L. "Doc" Brown, hangs on the arm of a large clock. This mimics a stunt done by 'Harold Lloyd (I)' (qv) (no relation) in the movie _Safety Last! (1923)_ (qv).
  • At 19, he moved to Manhattan and began studying with the acting teacher Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse.
  • In _Man on the Moon (1999)_ (qv), in scenes of _"Taxi" (1978)_ (qv), he appeared as himself, reprising his old role of Rev. Jim Ignatowski in the sitcom 20 years after the show itself was aired.
  • To prepare for the role of Taber in _One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)_ (qv), he lived in a mental institution for a few weeks and studied the patients. He modeled his character after one of the patients and stayed in character throughout all filming even when not on screen.
  • His _"Taxi" (1978)_ (qv) character, Reverend Jim, was a big fan of the original _"Star Trek" (1966)_ (qv). Lloyd later went on to play the Klingon commander Kruge in _Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984)_ (qv).
  • He's a devoted bicyclist. He once rode through Italy, pedaling from Milan to Venice, over the Dolomites, along the Amalfi coast and to Naples.
