Maury Chaykin

Highest Rated: 98% The Sweet Hereafter (1997)

Lowest Rated: 10% Joan of Arc (1999)

Birthday: Jul 27, 1949

Birthplace: Brooklyn, New York, USA

A character actor possessing a menacing but often sympathetic presence, Maury Chaykin specialized in small but startling performances in American features, including the pivotal role of Major Fambrough in Kevin Costner's Oscar-winning drama, "Dances With Wolves" (1990) and memorable parts in "WarGames" (1983) and "My Cousin Vinny" (1992). His sporadically recurring role on HBO's "Entourage" (2004-11) as volatile movie producer Harvey Weingard never failed to amuse, while he made a true name for himself on television with the starring turn as Detective Nero Wolfe on the A&E series, "A Nero Wolfe Mystery" (2001-02). He went on to find his true niche in Canada, where his physical appearance - being on the heftier side - did not impede his opportunity to land interesting leading roles.
