He also guest starred on TV shows as 'Laverne & Shirley,' 'Adam-12' and 'Gunsmoke.'
He had a cameo on ' Two and a Half Men,' which featured 'Pretty in Pink' star Jon Cryer, and appeared in such movies as 'The Avengers" and 'The Last Stand.'
His most recent film, ' Lucky,' about an atheist who comes to terms with his own mortality, is set to be released by Magnolia on 29 September.
