About Frank Langella
Frank Langella Biography
An imposing and highly memorable presence on the Broadway stage actor Frank Langella has won only a fraction of the acclaim he's received in the theater for his film career; still his brooding good looks and his ability to play both villains and comic foils with a touch of menace has made him a welcome (and increasingly familiar) fare to film buffs. Frank Langella was born in Bayonne NJ on New Year's Day 1940. Langella caught the acting bug when he was 11 after playing an elderly man in a school play on the life of Abraham Lincoln and he went on to earn a degree in Theater from Syracuse University. After studying acting with Elia_Kazan Langella began working with regional theater companies in the East Coast and the Midwest and in 1963 made his New York stage debut when he landed the leading role in an off-Broadway revival of +The Immoralist. Between 1964 and 1966 Langella would win three Obie awards for his work in off-Broadway theater and in 1969 he received a Drama Desk award for his work in the drama +A Cry of Players. In 1974 he made his Broadway debut in Edward_Albee's +Seascape and the following year won another Drama Desk award as well as a Tony for his performance.Langella made his film debut in 1970 with a supporting role in Diary of a Mad Housewife and later that same year scored a larger part in The_Twelve_Chairs written and directed by Mel_Brooks. While Langella landed occasional television and film roles through much of the 1970s he was still busiest as a stage actor. In 1977 Langella was cast in the leading role of a Broadway revival of +Dracula and his con brio performance as the bloodthirsty count earned rave reviews turning the production into an unexpected hit. Langella was tapped to reprise his performance for a film version of +Dracula released in 1979 but he was forced to tone down his unique take on the role for the screen and what would have seemingly been the perfect screen vehicle for his talents became a critical and box-office disappointment. However Langella maintained a busy schedule of stage work and in the 1990s finally scored a breakthrough screen role in the comedy Dave as the deceitful political puppet master Bob Alexander. A busy schedule of character roles in such films as Junior Lolita and The_Ninth_Gate followed though Langella still remained a frequent and distinguished presence in the New York theatrical community. He worked steadily at the beginning of the twenty-first century in films as diverse as the romantic drama Sweet November and David Duchovny's directorial debut House of D. He scored an artistic and critical success in 2005 playing William Paley in George Clooney's historical docudrama about Edward R. Murrow Good Night and Good Luck. He was then tapped by Bryan Singer to embody Daily Planet editor Perry White in the 2006 summer blockbuster Superman Returns.Book Frank Langella Now!
