Sandy Kenyon's name won't be familiar to too many people, but his face will be instantly recognizable to filmgoers and television viewers for the hundreds of roles that he has played -- cops and criminals, cowboys and government officials, and just about everything else that television or movies have had to offer since the late 1950s. Born in New York City on August 5, 1922, Kenyon served in the United States Army Air Force during World War II as a pilot, organizing shows in his spare time. He attended drama school on the G.I. Bill and formed the Town and Country Players with five friends in Hartford, CT, in 1946, performing eight seasons of summer stock work. His New York theater credits included Katherine Ann Porter's Pale Horse, Pale Rider, Sean O'Casey's Purple Dust, Ibsen's Peer Gynt, and Clifford Odets' Rocket to the Moon. Kenyon's screen career began in 1957 on television series such as Studio One, Kraft Playhouse, The Twilight Zone, Gunsmoke, and Have Gun, Will Travel. His movie debut took place in Al Capone (1959), in the role of Bones Corelli -- Kenyon's later screen credits have included roles in Nevada Smith (1966), Easy Come, Easy Go (1967), Something for a Lonely Man (1968), Rancho Deluxe (1975), and MacArthur (1977). He also got his first starring television role in 1958, working with Forrest Tucker in the adventure series Crunch and Des, based on the writings of Philip Wylie. In 1964, Kenyon made his Broadway debut as Pygmalion in Conversation at Midnight, which closed after only four performances. He is most familiar to audiences for his television work, which has included guest supporting roles on series ranging from All in the Family (as Dave the Cop in "Archie Is Worried About His Job") to Knots Landing; he was good at playing tough but fair-minded lunkheads, sleazy movie directors (Bracken's World), and single-minded public servants (Mod Squad). He has also done voice-over work in cartoons. The actor Sandy Kenyon is not to be confused with the entertainment correspondent of the same name.
