Biography

New York City, New York, USA
Veteran performer John Randolph was a Tony Award-winning character actor whose union and social activism in the '40s and '50s caused him to be blacklisted during the McCarthy era. The balding performer may not have been a household name, but he was a regular face in movies and TV for over four decades. The son of Russian and Romanian immigrants, he was born Emanuel Cohen in the Bronx. When his father died and his mother remarried, his stepfather, Joseph Lippman, renamed him Mortimer. Read more...
