He Was Crazy Like A Fox

Jack Warden, a veteran actor well-known for strong supporting and character roles, died this week at age 85.

Warden's most acclaimed work may have been in supporting roles for Warren Beatty; he was nominated for an academy award in 1975 for Shampoo, and again in 1978 for Heaven Can Wait. Warden won an Emmy in 1971 for his work in Brian's Song. In the 80's, Warden starred in the TV comedy-drama Crazy Like A Fox, which was pretty successful for a number of years.

I enjoyed Warden's work most in ...And Justice For All. One of my all-time favorite flicks.

My favorite movie with him was "12 Angry Men" and it was such a classic! I also remember him from "The Twilight Zone" and most recently from "While You Were Sleeping".
