A veteran of films, television, and the Las Vegas stage, musician Steve Lawrence is probably most recognizable to film audiences as The Blues Brothers' Maury Sline. Born Sidney Leibowitz in Brooklyn, New York, on July 8, 1935, Lawrence began writing music at the age of 16 and broke into television as a performer on Steve Allen's Tonight Show in the mid-'50s. A fixture of various TV variety shows throughout the '60s, including The Carol Burnett Show, Lawrence entered the realm of film cult stardom with his role in The Blues Brothers (1980), and went on to do sporadic screen work for the next couple of decades. In addition to supporting roles in Blues Brothers 2000 (1998), the boxing drama Play It to the Bone (2000), and the crime mystery The Yards, Lawrence had a recurring role on the TV sitcom The Nanny. Along with his wife Eydie Gorme, whom he married in 1957, Lawrence was a fixture of the Las Vegas stage for a long time, where he and Gorme often performed as the supporting act for Frank Sinatra.
