Birthplace: Dallas, Texas, USA

Gravel-voiced, heavy-set actor, known for his portrayals of tough yet wisely benevolent characters, Pat Corley was perhaps best known as Phil, the all-knowing bartender/restaurateur, whom he played for eight years on the CBS sitcom, "Murphy Brown" (1988-1996). Corley's early career consisted of work on the stage, most notably the Broadway revival of "Of Mice and Men" (1974-75) and two Tennessee Williams plays' "Red Devil Battery Sign" (1975) and "Sweet Bird of Youth" (1975-76). He made his TV debut in "The Wackest Ship in the Army," due to his brother's friendship with star Jack Warden. Among his feature credits were Mark Rydell's "The Rose" (1979) and Oliver Stone's early horror effort, "The Hand" (1981).
