Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Tall, dour-faced and slouch-shouldered character actor who has proved himself in both gritty dramatic roles and as an actor with wonderful comedic timing. Vigoda is the son of a Lower East Side tailor. He made his first stage appearance at the age of 17 and plodded away in small theater shows for over 20 years.

He also appeared in its sequel. Read more...
