Character actor, Jack Warden, was born John H. Lebzelter on Sep 18, 1920 in Newark, NJ. Warden died at the age of 85 on Jul 19, 2006 in New York City, NY and was cremated and his ashes given to family or friend.
Jack Warden was an ebullient American actor whose forceful personality and barking tones first brought him to the forefront as one of the jurors in "12 Angry Men". He was a top featured actor after that, often third or fourth on the cast list, but rarely the villain. In his later career, he took to playing eccentrics, sometimes apoplectic senior officials. He was unlucky in the 1970's when two good TV pilots failed to lead to successful series. He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor Oscars for his work in "Shampoo" and "Heaven Can Wait".(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
