BIOGRAPHY

This tall, curly-haired son of longtime CBS radio announcer Ken Roberts debuted on Broadway in "Something About a Soldier" (1962). Twice-nominated for Tony Awards, Tony Roberts has had notable collaborations with Neil Simon (appearing in three Broadway productions, a film and a national tour) and Woody Allen (two plays and six films). Although Roberts' stage credits have outnumbered his film appearances, he is perhaps best recalled for his work with Allen. He reprised his stage success as the businessman and best friend whose wife (Diane Keaton) Allen covets in "Play It Again, Sam" (1972). Roberts' command of upwardly mobile mannerisms and affectations made him the perfect WASP foil to Allen's nebbish persona as evidenced by the best-friend roles he played in such films as "Annie Hall" (1977), "A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy" (1982) and "Hannah and Her Sisters" (1986).
