Lee Strasberg
Birth: Nov. 17, 1901
Death: Feb. 17, 1982

Actor. Born in Budzanov, Austria, he emigrated to the United States with his family in 1908. He began acting in plays as a teenager and joined the New York City Theatre Group in 1931. He performed in some notable plays through the 1930s and joined the Manhattan Actors' Studio in the 1940s. Although he remained primarily as stage performer, he did appear in a number feature films such as "Storm in a teacup" (1937), "The Third Man" (1949), "China Venture" (1953) and "The Gun Runners" (1958). He is best remembered for his role as Hyman Roth in "The Godfather, Part II" (1974), for which he was nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. In his later years, he continued to perform on stage, direct theatre productions and was a teacher at the Actors' Studio. He died at age 80 in New York City and has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
