Fritz Weaver

Fritz Weaver

Highest Rated: 86% The Big Fix (1978)

Lowest Rated: 10% The Cobbler (2014)

Birthday: Jan 19, 1926

Birthplace: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

A celebrated and durable American stage actor whose TV and film appearances have not captured the commanding power he elicits in the theater, Fritz Weaver portrayed both sympathetic and calculatingly villainous characters, often demonstrating an upper-crust bearing made more plausible by the long, thin, pinched appearance of his trademark nose. He is perhaps best known worldwide for his portrayal of Dr. Josef Weiss, the doomed patriarch of a Berlin Jewish family, in the 1978 NBC miniseries "Holocaust."

QUOTES FROM Fritz Weaver CHARACTERS

Dexter Stanley says: (scared and crying) - Let's get the campus police!

Dexter Stanley says: (scared and crying) Let's get the campus police!

Charlie says: No! The campus security is no good! If I'm having trouble swallowing this, what the f**k will they think?

Dexter Stanley says: I don't know what they would think.

Charlie says: They'd think you had been off on a hell of a toot. They'd think that we'd both been off on a hell of a toot! Seeing Tasmanian devils instead of pink elephants.
