Emmy-Winning Actor Jack Warden Dies at 85

The Heaven Can Wait star was also an Oscar nominee

Oscar-nominated character actor Jack Warden, best known for starring alongside Warren Beatty in Shampoo and Heaven Can Wait, has died at 85, his longtime business manager said.

Warden, who appeared in dozens of films including All the President’s Men with Robert Redford and won an Emmy award as the star of the 1980s TV series Crazy Like a Fox, died on Wednesday in New York, business manager Sidney Pazoff said.

Warden, who was born John Lebzelter in New Jersey and began acting after serving in World War Two, had a breakthrough role in Twelve Angry Men in 1957.

Pazoff said the veteran character actor had retired several years ago and had been suffering from medical problems in recent years.
