Jack Warden

Jack Warden began his career in New York in various stage productions including A View from the Bridge, Lullaby, Picnic, Golden Boy, Death of a Salesman and The Man in the Glass Booth.

After his talents were noticed by Hollywood, Warden soon found himself working closely with some of the silver screen's most famous performers including Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in From Here to Eternity, Henry Fonda in Twelve Angry Men, Clark Gable in Run Silent, Run Deep and John Wayne in Donovan's Reef.

In 1972, Warden jumped form the big screen to television and subsequently earned an Emmy Award for his performance in Brian's Song opposite James Caan. Returning to film, it wasn't long before Warden received two Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor (one for Shampoo and the other for Heaven Can Wait, both opposite Warren Beatty).

Warden's additional film credits include All the President's Men, The Champ, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure, Being There, . . . And Justice for All, The Presidio, Toys, Bullets Over Broadway, While You Were Sleeping, Mighty Aphrodite and Things To Do in Denver When You're Dead. Warden recently completed filming the latest untitled Warren Beatty film.
