      As a Tony Award-winning performer in the early part of his career, Canadian actor Len Cariou later made a successful transition to the screen to become a recognizable fixture in numerous series and made-for-television movies. Following his Broadway triumphs in "Applause" (1970) and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (1979), Cariou crossed over to films and television with memorable appearances as a spy on "Murder, She Wrote" (CBS, 1984-1996) and as Walt Disney in "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes: The Annette Funicello Story" (CBS, 1995). Despite his successful move over to the small screen, his Broadway star diminished throughout the 1980s and 1990s. But in 2002, Cariou hit his theatrical stride once again with a noted run in the embattled Broadway play, "Proof." Though the show itself was short-lived, Cariou enjoyed renewed career vigor and began turning in sharp performances on series television, while earning an Emmy Award nomination for his turn as Franklin D. Roosevelt in "Into the Storm" (BBC, 2008), proving that even in his seventies, he remained a vital performer.
