WWII veteran, dance instructor and diversely talented stage & screen actor were all inclusions on the resume of this perpetually busy US actor who didn't get in front of the cameras until around the time of his fortieth birthday. The stockily built Charles Durning was one of Hollywood's most dependable and sought after supporting actors.Durning was born in Highland Falls, New York, to Louise Marie (Leonard), a laundress, and James Gerald Durning. His father was an Irish immigrant and his mother was of Irish descent. Durning first got his start in guest appearances in early 1960's TV shows. He scored minor roles over the next decade until he really got noticed by film fans as the sneering, corrupt cop "Lt. Snyder" hassling street grifter 'Robert Redford' in the multi award winning mega-hit L'arnaque (1973). Durning was equally entertaining in the Billy Wilder production of Spéciale première (1974), he supported screen tough guy Charles Bronson in the suspenseful western Le solitaire de Fort Humboldt (1975) and featured as "Spermwhale Whalen" in the story of unorthodox police behavior in Bande de flics ! (1977).The versatile Durning is equally adept at comedic roles and demonstrated his skills as "Doc Hopper" in Les Muppets : Ça c'est du cinéma ! (1979), a feisty football coach in North Dallas Forty (1979), a highly strung police officer berating maverick cop Burt Reynolds in L'anti-gang (1981), and a light footed, dancing Governor (alongside Burt Reynolds once more) in La cage aux poules (1982). Durning continued a regular on screen association with Burt Reynolds appearing in several more feature films together and as "Dr. Harlan Elldridge" in the highly popular TV series Evening Shade (1990). On par with his multitude of feature film roles, Durning has always been in high demand on television and has guest starred in Tout le monde aime Raymond (1996), Monk (2002) and Rescue me, les héros du 11 septembre (2004). Plus, he has appeared in the role of "Santa Claus" in five different television movies. - IMDb Mini Biography By:
