TriviaChose his stage name on the way from Philadelphia to an acting job in New York City. He saw the water tower in Linden, New Jersey, and the rest is history. Long associated with the March of Dimes, serving as national chairman for many years. Although he was nominated for several Emmys for his great work on "Barney Miller" (1975), the Emmys he won were for hosting a series of daytime informational spots called "FYI". Even though he was trained as a clarinet player, he often played saxophone in live jazz bands to earn a living as a young man. Best remembered by the public for his starring role on "Barney Miller" (1975).
