A stage, screen and TV actor, Michael Moriarty came to prominence with his sensitive performance as baseball pitcher Henry Wiggen in the acclaimed 1973 drama, "Bang the Drum Slowly." Not all of Moriarty's subsequent work has lived up to that early promise, nor has he proven to be "box office," yet he has remained in demand for stage and TV roles. Additionally, he has branched out as a composer and jazz pianist.
