George C. Scott

Scott in ''The Hustler'' (1961) George Campbell Scott (October 18, 1927 – September 22, 1999) was an American actor, director and producer. He had a celebrated career on both stage and screen. With a gruff demeanor and commanding presence, Scott became known for his portrayal of stern but complex authority figures.

Described by ''The Guardian'' as "a battler and an actor of rare courage", his roles earned him numerous accolades including two Golden Globes, and two Primetime Emmys as well as nominations for two BAFTA Awards and five Tony Awards. Though he won the Academy Award for Best Actor for playing General George S. Patton in ''Patton'' (1970), he became the first actor Nichols later accepted the award at the 1938 Oscar ceremony.}} to decline the award, having warned the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences months in advance that he would do so on the basis of his belief that performances cannot be compared to others. His other Oscar-nominated roles include ''Anatomy of a Murder'' (1959), ''The Hustler'' (1961), and ''The Hospital'' (1971).

Scott's other notable films include ''Dr. Strangelove'' (1964), ''Petulia'' (1968), ''The Day of the Dolphin'' (1973), ''Movie Movie'' (1978), ''Hardcore'' (1979), and ''The Exorcist III'' (1990).

Scott gained fame for his roles on television earning two Primetime Emmy Awards for his performances in ''Hallmark Hall of Fame'' (1971), and ''12 Angry Men'' (1997). He also played leading roles in ''Jane Eyre'' (1970), ''Beauty and the Beast'' (1976), and ''A Christmas Carol'' (1984). Scott continued to maintain a prominent stage career even as his film stardom waned, and by the end of his career he had accrued five Tony nominations for his performances in ''Comes a Day'' (1959), ''The Andersonville Trial'' (1960), ''Uncle Vanya'' (1974), ''Death of a Salesman'' (1975), and ''Inherit the Wind''. He directed several of his own films and plays and often collaborated with his wives Colleen Dewhurst and Trish Van Devere. Provided by Wikipedia
