      Anthony Zerbe

      Anthony Zerbe

      Highest Rated: 100% Cool Hand Luke (1967)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Listen to Me (1989)

      Birthday: May 20, 1936

      Birthplace: Long Beach, California, USA

      For over four decades, Emmy-winning actor Anthony Zerbe compiled an impressive list of character turns, frequently on the amoral side, in countless features, including "Cool Hand Luke" (1967), "The Omega Man" (1971), "The Dead Zone" (1983), "License to Kill" (1989) and "The Matrix Revolutions" (2003). Classically trained, he imbued a sinuous grace and elegance to nearly every role, no matter how scurrilous or ham-fisted, which elevated him to favored actor status in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. Though a frequent go-to for heels and unsavory types, he could also be a warm and caring paternal figure, as evidenced by his veteran cowpoke on "The Young Riders" (ABC, 1988-1992) and numerous other television programs. Rarely off the screen for more than a few months at a time, Zerbe also maintained a busy theater schedule, which included recitations of classic poetry and the works of e.e. cummings, as well as a traveling master class in acting. His innate believability in any role, no matter how fatuous the feature or TV episode, earned him the affection of two generations of character actor aficionados.
