Biography

American actor and legitimate theater producer, best known for his 1970s performances in "Diary of a Mad Housewife" and "Dracula," though he has had a distinguished theater career of classical and demanding roles in over 70 plays. In addition to 1996 Broadway roles in both "The Father" and Noel Coward's "Present Laughter," his film projects have included "Lolita" and "Alegria." He has produced such works as "Sherlock's Last Case," and Arthur Miller's "After the Fall," and has directed "Passione."

First cast in 1967 in "The Devils," he stayed with theater work despite having worked in film and television since the early 1970s. He made his Broadway debut in Edward Albee's "Seascape," in 1975. He once again distinguished himself and won a Tony and an Academy Award nomination for best leading male performer in the role of the former President Richard Nixon in the 2007 play and subsequent movie "Frost/Nixon" (2009).

Though self-described as outrageous, difficult and willful, Langella has an affinity with Eastern philosophy.
