Profile Bio Text
Hal Holbrook is an Emmy- and Tony-Award winning actor who is one of the great craftsman of stage and screen. He is best known for his performance as Mark Twain, for which he won a Tony and the first of his ten Emmy Award nominations. Aside from the stage, Holbrook made his reputation primarily on television, and was memorable as Abraham Lincoln, as Senator Hays Stowe on "The Bold Ones" and as Capt. Lloyd Bucher on "Pueblo". All of these roles brought him Emmy Awards, with "Pueblo" bringing him two, as Best Lead Actor in a Drama and Actor of the Year - Special. On January 22, 2008, he became the oldest male performer ever nominated for a an Academy Award, for his supporting turn in "Into the Wild." He was born Harold Rowe Holbrook, Jr. on February 17, 1925 in Cleveland, Ohio. His mother was the former Eileen Davenport, a vaudeville dancer. Raised primarily in South Weymouth, Mass., Holbrook attended the Culver Academies. During World War II, Holbrook served in the Army in Newfoundland. After the war, he attended Dennison University, graduating in 1948. While at Dennison, Holbrook`s senior honors project concerned Mark Twain. He`d later develop "Mark Twain Tonight," the one-man show in which he impersonates the great American writer Mark Twain, a.k.a. Mark Twain. Holbrook learned his craft on the boards and by appearing in the TV soap opera "The Brighter Day." He first played Mark Twain as a solo act in 1954, at Lock Haven State Teachers College in Pennsylvania. The show was a success that created a buzz. After seeing the performance, Ed Sullivan, the host of TV`s premier variety show, featured him on "Toast of the Town," on February 12, 1956. This lead to an international tour sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, which included appearances in Iron Curtain countries. Holbrook brought the show to Off-Broadway in 1959. He even played Mark Twain for President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The 1966 "Mark Twain Tonight" Broadway production brought Holbrook even more acclaim, and the Tony Award. The show was taped and Holbrook won an Emmy nomination. He reprised the show on Broadway in 1977 and in 2005. By that time, he had played Samuel Clemens on stage over 2,000 times. Among Holbrook`s more famous roles was the Major in the original Broadway production of Arthur Miller`s "Incident at Vichy," as Martin Sheen`s significant other in the controversial and acclaimed 1972 TV movie "That Certain Summer," the first TV movie to sympathetically portray homosexuality, and as Abraham Lincoln in a TV special based on Carl Sandburg`s acclaimed biography of the 16th President. He also is known for his portrayal of the enigmatic Deep Throat in "All the President`s Men," one of the major cinema events of the mid-`70s. In the 1990s, he had a regular supporting role in the TV series "Evening Shade," playing `Burt Reynolds`` father-in-law.
