Cliff Gorman (October 13, 1936 – September 5, 2002) was an American stage and screen actor. He won an Obie award in 1968 for the stage presentation of The Boys in the Band, and went on to reprise his role in the 1970 film version.
Life and career
Gorman won a Tony Award in 1972 for playing Lenny Bruce in the play Lenny. Although the film version, directed by Bob Fosse, featured Dustin Hoffman, Gorman was recruited to portray a Dustin Hoffman-like character portraying Lenny Bruce, in a side-story in Fosse's auto-biographical film All That Jazz. In 1984 he co-starred as Lt. Andrews in the film Angel. Noteworthy are his roles in movies like An Unmarried Woman with Jill Clayburgh, Hoffa with Jack Nicholson and Danny DeVito and Night and the City with Robert De Niro. His TV work included performances in series like Law and Order, Murder, She Wrote and the 1970s drama Police Story, written by former LAPD Detective Sergeant Joseph Wambaugh.
