Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

Standing 6'5," prematurely bald and decidedly "ethnic," Herb Edelman had a long career as a character player of stage, screen and TV. He remains best known for his extensive work in the latter medium, generally in stints as a series regular or recurring character ("Welcome Back, Kotter"; "St. Elsewhere"; "Knots Landing"), very rarely as a lead. Edelman may be best recognized as Stanley Zbornak, the ne'er-do-well ex-husband of Bea Arthur's Dorothy on the hit sitcom "The Golden Girls" (NBC, 1985-92).

QUOTES FROM Herb Edelman CHARACTERS

Oscar Madison says: My friend Murray the policeman gets a warm Pepsi.

Roy says: You still didn't fix the refrigerator. It's been two weeks now - no wonder it stinks in here.

Oscar Madison says: Temper, temper. If I wanted nagging, I'd go back with my wife. I'm out. Who wants food?

Murray says: What do you got?

Oscar Madison says: I got, uh, brown sandwiches and, uh, green sandwiches. Which one do you want?

Murray says: What's the green?

Oscar Madison says: It's either very new cheese or very old meat.

Murray says: I'll take the brown.
