About Alan Arkin (1934 –)

On March 26, 1934, Alan Wolf Arkin was born in New York City, New York.

Alan Arkin has, to date, married three times. Arkin's first marriage was to Barbara Dana in 1964 with whom he had one child. Arkin remarried in 1955 to Jeremy Yaffe. They had two children during their decade of marriage. Alan re-married to his current wife, Suzanne Arkin. Alan Arkin is the father of Adam Arkin, Matthew Arkin and Anthony Arkin.

The beginning of his career consisted of baby steps. In fact, Arkin performed many cameos in his youth, including his cameo as a mild-mannered police chief in 1933's So I Married an Axe Murderer, which he performed without billing. Eventually Arkin would join the St. Louis Missouri Theatre, The Compass Theatre, where he would attain his acting skills. In 1961, an experienced Alan Arkin had made a career for himself back home in New York with the Second City troupe.

After some credible success, Alan Arkin would join the Broadway stage, appearing in productions of Enter Laughing and Luv. His performance in 1963's Enter Laughing won Alan a Tony for Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic).

Alan began his silver screen career in 1966. To date, Alan Arkin is one of only five actors to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for a first screen appearance -- in 1966's The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming, in which he starred as an abandoned Russian sailor.

The following year Alan starred in what was perhaps his darkest role, as the viciously intelligent psychopath Harry Roat, who terrifies a vulnerable blind woman (Audrey Hepburn) in 1967's Wait Until Dark.

Two of Alan Arkin's silver screen roles were later adapted into a TV Series starring Hector Elizondo. The movies from which the characters were reprised were 1969's Popi and 1974's Freebie and the Bean.

Originally cast to play Saul Bloom in Steven Soderbergh's remake of Ocean's Eleven, Arkin decided to drop out of production. He was replaced by Carl Reiner.

In 1973 Alan Arkin was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Director for The Sunshine Boys.
