Portly, sometimes mustached, stage-trained British character actor of film and TV of the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Kinnear first gained notoriety on British TV as a regular on the groundbreaking weekly topical satire series, "That Was the Week That Was" in the early 60s. With his large, round face and often bulging eyes, Kinnear sweated and flustered his way through many a frantic comedy, as well as dramas and period fare, playing characters both sympathetic and not. Children of a certain age may best recall him in "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (1971) as Mr. Salt, the pompous, indulgent father of the bratty Veruca Salt. His non-comedy credits include "The Hill" (1965), director Sidney Lumet's hard-hitting military prison drama starring Sean Connery, and the Hammer horror entry, "Taste the Blood of Dracula" (1969).
