Oppenheimer was born in New York City, New York on April 23, 1930, the son of Irene (née Rothschild) and Louis E. Oppenheimer, who was a stockbroker.
He was married to costume designer Marianna Elliott and professional tennis player Marilyn Greenwood, and has three children. He is the third cousin of J. Robert Oppenheimer.[citation needed] (At the C4 Central Canada Comic Con in Winnipeg Manitoba on November 3, 2012 during his presentation Alan Oppenheimer denied any knowledge of being related to Robert Oppenheimer.)
As a character actor, Oppenheimer has had diverse roles in popular American television programming, from playing a Nazi in Hogan's Heroes, to playing an Israeli secret agent as well as a double-agent KAOS scientist on Get Smart, to being the second actor to play Dr. Rudy Wells in The Six Million Dollar Man (Martin Balsam played the role in the pilot telemovie. Oppenheimer took over as Rudy starting with the second film, "Wine, Women and War" and kept playing up until the introduction of the bionic woman in 1975, whereupon Martin E. Brooks took over as Wells until cancellation). He was the original Mickey Malph (Ralph Malph's dad) on Happy Days. He also played a recurring role during the first two seasons of the 1980s medical drama St. Elsewhere, as Helen Rosenthal's husband Ira. He had a recurring role as Mayor Alvin B. Tutweiler in the comedy series Mama's Family.
Alan showed himself well suited to the science fiction genre in the 1973 cult classic Westworld, where he played the head IT technician. He has also appeared in three of the more recent Star Trek series, always playing a different character. He appeared in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Rightful Heir" as a Klingon cleric, Koroth, a primary instigator of the cloning of Kahless, on Deep Space Nine as a Starfleet Captain Declan Keogh in command of the USS Odyssey, and as an alien ambassador in Voyager.
Alan Oppenheimer appeared as film director Cecil B. DeMille in the 1994 Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Blvd.

  • A regular on 1960s TV sitcoms as eggheaded foils to 'Lucille Ball' (qv) and many others, playing official types.
  • Has three children.
  • One of the finest animated voice artists in the business, Oppenhemer has provided many famous cartoon voices including Mighty Mouse, Skeletor, and Ming the Merciless, among hundreds of others over a four-decade career.
  • On the short-lived sitcom _"He & She" (1967)_ (qv), Oppenheimer played an accountant by the unlikely name of Murray Mouse. This was most likely an inside joke in light of his most famous role--as the voice of Mighty Mouse. He also did a guest appearance on _"Happy Days" (1974)_ (qv) as Mickey Malph, which sounds like Mickey Mouse.
