Pittsburgh-born character actor Harry Caesar's first brush with show business came in the in the early 1950s, when he tried his luck as an R&B singer after moving to California. First working as a solo artist, he garnered some attention with the eerie 1952 hit single "Goodbye Baby" and the offbeat novelty number "Atomic Love" in 1953. By the beginning of the 1960s, Caesar was recording with the Doo-wop backing group the Romans, and together they released the popular track "Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me of You)." As Caesar's music career declined, he moved on to acting, first finding minor television roles in 1970. He soon began appearing in feature films, including the 1972 Billie Holiday biopic "Lady Sings the Blues" and the 1973 Great Depression-set adventure "Emperor of the North," directed by Hollywood vet Robert Aldrich. Caesar shared the screen with stars Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine and Keith Carradine in the latter film. The next year, he worked with Aldrich again, acting in the filmmaker's popular sports comedy "The Longest Yard." Caesar then started to gravitate toward television series and TV movies, guesting on popular programs of the 1970s and '80s, such as "Baretta," "Hillstreet Blues" and "L.A. Law." He later scored some of his most memorable supporting film roles in the 1990s, including parts in the Mel Gibson-Goldie Hawn hit "Bird on a Wire" and the Oscar-nominated courtroom drama "A Few Good Men."
