Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Jeff Corey was a supporting player of Broadway and feature films when the dark cloud of the blacklisting snatched his acting career away from him in the 1950s. Rather than leave the profession he loved so dearly, he became one of the foremost acting instructors in Hollywood, opening not just his own studio, but returning to college at UCLA, earning a degree, and teaching at California State, Northridge as well. When the cloud had ended, Corey re-emerged as a character player, often of kindly old men with a rough-hewn upbringing, and as a director of TV episodics including ten installments of "Night Gallery" (NBC, 1970-72).
