Seymour Cassel

Seymour Joseph Cassel was an American actor who appeared in over 200 movies and television shows, and had a career that spanned over 50 years. Cassel first came to prominence in the 1960s in the pioneering independent films of writer/director John Cassavetes. The first of these was Too Late Blues, followed by Faces, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award and won a National Society of Film Critics Award. Cassel went on to appear in Cassavetes' Minnie and Moskowitz, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Opening Night, and Love Streams. Notable films included: Coogan's Bluff, The Last Tycoon, Valentino, Convoy, Johnny Be Good, Mobsters, In the Soup, Honeymoon in Vegas, Indecent Proposal, Beer League, and Fort McCoy. Like Cassavetes, Wes Anderson frequently cast Cassel – first in Rushmore, then in The Royal Tenenbaums, and finally in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
