From 1978 to 1982, he could be heard as Orson, Mork’s (Robin Williams) boss on the Planet Ork, in the live-action TV series Mork & Mindy (a Happy Days spin-off). In addition, he provided character voice overs in the Pink Panther cartoon shorts. He also made several live acting appearances, including the action/sexploitation film Big Bad Mama (1974) starring Angie Dickenson, William Shatner and Tom Skerritt, where he played the minor role of a sheriff, Capone (1975), where he played the part of Judge H.B. Wilkerson, and the part of "Ace" in Sixpack Annie (1975).
