Jack Soo

Jack Soo

Highest Rated: 86% Thoroughly Modern Millie (1967)

Lowest Rated: 12% The Oscar (1966)

Birthday: Oct 28, 1917

Birthplace: Oakland, California, USA

A genial, sleepy-eyed character player especially adept at the relaxed wisecrack, Soo is best remembered for his hilarious Detective Sgt. Nick Yemana on one of the best sitcoms of the 1970s, "Barney Miller." His career, though, began three decades earlier, and the actor gradually managed to develop roles which were more than stock ethnic types, whose humor was based on the situations of life rather than the limitations of caricature.
