Mandy was born into a family who had become well known for both writing and theatre. He had cousins who were popular authors, journalists, and another who was a founder of The Second City. When he was younger, he attended a religious school daily and sang in choirs and the like. He then attended Shore High School, moving to Harvard St. George School and then Kenwood High School before matriculating in 1970. He attended the University of Kansas and then Julliard School where he was the classmate of actor Kelsey Grammer.

After school, he made a few commercial appearances on radio and television, but got his breakthrough chance when he became part of the Broadway production of “Evita”. He won a Tony Award for his performance and was then given opportunities in movies such as “Ragtime” and “Yenti”. He went back to Broadway in 1984 to act in “Sunday in the Park with George” which earned him a nomination. He then had a very iconic role in the film “The Princess Bride” which led him to other opportunities such as in “Alien Nation” and “Dick Tracy”. In 1991, he appeared in the musical “The Secret Garden” and also pursuaded him to enter a music career, making solo albums entitled “Dress Casual” and “Mandy Patinkin”. All were contributing to his net worth.

Three years later in 1994, he became part of the television series “Chicago Hope” which earned him an Emmy Award. However, he left the show during the second season but returned during the sixth season, staying until its termination in 2000. He continued making appearances on stage and television, becoming part of the production of “The Wild Party” and the series “Dead Like Me”. In 2005, he became part of the show “Criminal Minds” but soon left due to creative differences – according to an interview, he didn’t like how the show consistently portrayed violence. He then started to work on a new musical “Paradise Found” and one of his latest projects is “Homeland” for which he’s been nominated for an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe.

For his personal life, Mandy married actress Kathryn Grody in 1980 and they have two sons. He mentions that he adheres to both Jewish and Buddhist spiritual beliefs. He’s had a few health problems throughout his life such as the eye disease keratoconus, and prostate cancer both of which were successfully treated. Aside from these, Patinkin is known to sing songs in Yiddish and is involved in various Jewish cultural activities.

TV ShowsDead Like Me, Chicago Hope, Ellis Island, Homeland, Criminal Minds
1[on working with F. Murray Abraham in Homeland (2011)] Murray loves what he does - I think he loves it more than breathing. He has a 'quiet' about him that draws you to him and commands your attention. He's a thrill to work with, meaning he almost does it all for you, you just need to show up and be in the room with him.
2[re his role as Saul in Homeland (2011)] When were you afraid? Why? Did you pray? Shake? Sweat? The way I like to work is to attach personal experiences to what I'm doing, so it helps tremendously if I can write my own play under what the writer has written. Saul's heart is in his head. He dreams for the greater good of the world. Saul is now 60 years old, as I am, and he has had a full life in his business, as I have, and he doesn't know how long he gets to be around, as I don't. He recognizes the gift of youth personified by his child in this piece, who is Carrie. He believes that both the savantlike and intellectual qualities of Carrie's nature are the greatest single hope for humanity. He believes so deeply in her possibilities.
3[re his father, physically impaired in an accident] If you'd say, 'What was your father's greatest pain?' it's that he couldn't play catch with me because he couldn't control his right hand. He was worried that he would throw the ball too hard and too fast and he'd hurt me. I remember when my aunts and uncles would say, 'You don't know your father,' meaning before the brain accident. My little kid-ness was going, 'What do you mean I didn't know my father?' He was a great man. He taught himself how to walk again, to write with his left hand. My father was a hero.
4I struggled with letting in other people's opinions. During Chicago Hope (1994), I never let directors talk to me, because I was so spoiled. I started off with people like Milos Forman, Sidney Lumet, James Lapine, unbelievably gifted people. So there I was saying, 'Don't talk to me, I don't want your opinion.' I behaved abominably. I don't care if my work was good or if I got an award for it. I'm not proud of how I was then, and it pained me.
5[re quitting Criminal Minds (2005)] It wasn't the right fit. I made a choice I didn't want to make. I pushed myself, thinking I needed more fame, more economic security. One of the greatest gifts that Homeland (2011) has given me is it's affirming on a daily basis. I'm always with the script, walking around with this stuff 24/7, so my head's in a good place. The role is about listening, and when you don't listen to yourself, you get in trouble. I wasn't listening to myself in Heartburn (1986) [from which he was fired]. I listened to [my agent and] the culture at large saying, 'You've got to be in a movie, this is going to make you,' and it wasn't who I was. Yes, I did Yentl (1983) and Dick Tracy (1990), but I felt, and I still feel a little bit today that I'm really not successful, because I didn't become a movie star. The irony is half of those movie stars are all trying to be in television shows like this.
6The biggest public mistake I ever made was that I chose to do Criminal Minds (2005) in the first place.
7I'm just an actor. I am nothing special. An actor is only as good as what they have on the page in front of them, and anyone who tells you differently is full of shit.
8I try to say something about the human condition whenever I can when I'm lucky.
9Everything I experience influences everything I do.

15Says that, of all the roles he's played in his career, "Inigo Montoya" from The Princess Bride (1987) is his absolute favorite.
16Won Broadway's 1980 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Musical) for playing Ernesto 'Che' Guevara in Broadway's "Evita."
