Biography and Career:

Frank Langella was born on January 1, 1938 in Bayonne, New Jersey, USA. He is an American stage and film actor.

Langella went on to study drama at Syracuse University. After several years of performing in regional repertory and summer stock, he joined the Lincoln Center Repertory Company as one of its original members, studying under Elia Kazan.

He made his New York City stage debut in "The Immoralist" in 1963 and spent much of the remainder of the decade onstage, building his reputation with OBIE-winning turns in "The Old Glory" (1964), "Good Day" (1965) and "The White Devil" (1965).

He also appeared frequently at the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Berkshire Theatre Festival, wh ere he created the role of Will Shakespeare in "A Cry of Players" (1968), earning another Drama Desk Award. Langella made an excellent feature film debut as a swaggering, self-centered amoralist afraid of serious relationships in Frank Perry's "Diary of a Mad Housewife" (1970). That same year, he also came up aces as a Russian con man in Mel Brooks' "The Twelve Chairs," winning the Best Supporting Actor Award from the National Board of Review for the two performances.

Langella boldly inhabited the charismatic title character in the ABC TV movie, "The Mark of Zorro" (1974). He went on to spend the majority of the 1970s on stage, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway debut as a slithering lizard in Edward Albee's Pulitzer-winner, "Seascape" (1975).

His legendary smoldering performance in the Broadway smash "Dracula" (1977) led to another Tony nomination â€' a significant accomplishment as the actor shared the spotlight with illustrator Edward Gorey's magnificent sets. Langella's acclaimed stage work reached larger audiences when tapings of his Williamstown Theatre Festival performances in Chekhov's "The Seagull" and Tennessee Williams' "Eccentricities of a Nightingale" aired on PBS' "Theater in America" series in 1975 and 1976.
