James Broderick - Rotten Tomatoes

James Broderick



Authoritative American character actor James Broderick is best known to filmgoers of the flower-power generation for his performance as Alice's husband in the 1969 film Alice's Restaurant. It was but one of many incisive film characterizations for Broderick, who was equally effective in such films as The Group (1966), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1973) and Dog Day Afternoon (1975). From 1976 through 1980, Broderick played lawyer/patriarch Doug Lawrence in the weekly TV drama Family; he had previously starred in the detective series Brenner, playing the rookie-cop son of Edward Binns (who wasn't that much older). James Broderick was the father of contemporary film star Matthew Broderick, who paid homage to his dad by prominently displaying the elder Broderick's photograph in the 1990 film The Freshman.
