Warden, Jack
▪ 2007
John H. Lebzelter 
      American actor (b. Sept. 18, 1920, Newark, N.J.—d. July 19, 2006, New York, N.Y.), specialized in character roles on the large and small screen, and his gruff exterior was ideally suited for roles in which he was cast as a cop, a coach, or a military man. Warden's breakthrough film role was as juror number seven in the star-studded 12 Angry Men (1957), in which he portrayed an impatient salesman looking for a quick verdict so that he could attend a baseball game. Other notable films included The Bachelor Party (1957), The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974), All the President's Men (1976), Being There (1979), Bullets over Broadway (1994), and two for which he earned Academy Award nominations for best supporting actor—Shampoo (1975) and Heaven Can Wait (1978). Besides starring on numerous TV shows, including Mr. Peepers (1952–55), The Wackiest Ship in the Army (1965), N.Y.P.D. (1967–69), The Bad News Bears (1979), and Crazy like a Fox (1984–86), Warden won an Emmy Award for his performance as coach George Halas in the made-for-television movie Brian's Song (1971). His last film was The Replacements (2000).
