BIOGRAPHY

A bushy-browed veteran character player of stage and screen since the 1960s, Moffat began stomping the boards during the 50s in his native England, making his West End debut in a 1954 production of "Macbeth." He made his feature debut in Paul Newman's "Rachel, Rachel" (1968), and since the early 80s has become a Hollywood staple, playing older gentlemen in both films and TV. Some of Moffat's craggy parts include "The Right Stuff" (1983), as Lyndon B. Johnson; "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" (1988), as the chief surgeon; and "Bonfire of the Vanities" (1990), as Tom Hanks' dad. He was especially touching as a middle-aged businessman who finds he only has a short time to live in the TV miniseries adaptation of Armistead Maupin's San Francisco chronicle, "Tales from the City" (PBS, 1994).
