For over the past 30 years, the diminutive, stage-trained character actor, Austin Pendleton has been cast in film and TV roles that, in an earlier generation, might have been filled by such hand-wringing nervous Nellies as Edward Everett Horton or Franklin Pangborn. He worked at the Williamstown (MA) Theater Festival while attending Yale, then headed for New York after his 1961 graduation. Though hardly a leading man type, he quickly got work, making his off-Broadway debut in 1962's "Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feeling So Sad."
