BIOGRAPHY:

Purposely flunked his college entrance exam to the University of Dayton so that he could pursue an acting career instead.

TRIVIA:

  • His admiration for the Rev. 'Fulton J. Sheen' (qv) prompted him to adopt the bishop's name for his acting career.
  • His left arm is 3" shorter than his right due to complications during his birth.
  • His parents met at citizenship school in Dayton
  • Has played both Attorney General 'Robert F. Kennedy' (qv) in _The Missiles of October (1974) (TV)_ (qv) and President 'John F. Kennedy' (qv) in the mini-series _"Kennedy" (1983)_ (qv), and is the only actor to portray both brothers.
  • Was considered for the role of Sgt.Max Greevey on _"Law & Order" (1990)_ (qv).
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 1965 Tony Award as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic) for "The Subject Was Roses," a role that he recreated in the film version of the same name, _The Subject Was Roses (1968)_ (qv).
  • Stumped in Florida for Democratic gubernatorial candidate 'Janet Reno' (qv) in her unsuccessful campaign against sitting Gov. 'Jeb Bush' (qv), June 2002. Reno also drew major support from 'Rosie O'Donnell' (qv) and 'Elton John' (qv).
