Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A veteran character actor who was friends with the venerable filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich, George Morfogen was originally intended to make his feature film debut in Bogdanovich's metafictional thriller "Targets" (1968). After the filmmaker himself took the part in question, Morfogen began making appearances on series such as the fiery detective thriller "Kojak" and in films such as the punk-rock drama "Times Square". The actor built up viewer recognition with guest appearances on the crime adventure series "Remington Steele" and the acclaimed medical drama "St. Elsewhere" before delivering a memorable turn as the frightened Stanley Bernstein on the landmark sci-fi miniseries "V".

As a sort of late fulfillment of the missed opportunity that was Bogdanivich's aforementioned film, Morfogen garnered supporting roles in several of the filmmaker's ensuing projects, including the period comedy-of-errors "Daisy Miller" (1974), the madcap caper "They All Laughed" (1981), and the romantic...
