RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Though he was Oscar-nominated for his role as the dinner guest of dysfunctional couple Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the film classic "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1966), George Segal went on to enjoy his most significant success as a comic actor with wry wit and debonair charm. During the 1970s, Segal was an A-list film actor with a string of comedies that paired him with Robert Redford in "The Hot Rock" (1972), Barbra Streisand in "The Owl and the Pussycat" (1970), and Jane Fonda in "Fun with Dick and Jane" (1976), though Segal was not able to retain the high film profile of his co-stars into the next decade. Instead, he found his niche in television movies for a number of years before resurfacing with "dad" roles in a new generation of comedies like "Look Who's Talking" (1989) and "The Cable Guy" (1996). Younger generations, however, were most familiar with Segal through the popular office sitcom "Just Shoot Me" (NBC, 1997-2003), which earned Segal a number of Golden Globe nominations and kept him in the public eye with ongoing appearances as self-aggrandizing but quick-witted, charming executive types.
