1Often plays police officers
1I made a few other films in New York in the late 60's, early 70's. But I think The Fog (1980) was my first film in Los Angeles. I could be wrong. And it was a "horror" film. And then I made a bunch of horror films for a while. And I loved them. I had always admired Vincent Price, and though I never worked with him, it was one of the treats of my life to meet him in Los Angeles, and we were mutual fans. I would like to have had a career like his.
2Well, I grew up in Pittsburgh. My father worked for J&L Steel. We were a blue collar family. And that's the kind of actor I am. What you see is what you get. I've played a lot of cops and a few bad guys. No one has ever hired me to play a brain surgeon, though I have played a couple of docs.
3Mel Gibson was lovely. He was on the edge of both scenes that I had with Danny Glover.
4You know, they just don't make big movie stars the way they used to, maybe because the system has changed, the studio system, but it's sad to see people like Jimmy Stewart go, all the giants of the past.
5Jimmy Garner is a very gracious guy, as he was then and he is still today.
6Richard Donner was a particular delight. He's a wonderful kind of old-fashioned director, from what I would have thought the golden days of Hollywood must have been from the '30s and '40s. He was just a big, handsome, strapping, strong, delightful, cigar-smoking, very open, gregarious guy. He would talk to anybody. He never closed off the set.
1His longtime partner David Lewell died in 2004.
2Currently lives in Peters Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. [2004]
3Has appeared with Adrienne Barbeau in four films: The Fog (1980), Escape from New York (1981), Creepshow (1982) and Two Evil Eyes (1990).
4His son E. Taylor Atkins graduated from Peters Township High School in Pennsylvania.
5Is a frequent player in shows at the Pittsburgh Public Theater, most famously in the one-man show "The Chief", in which he depicts the late founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Art Rooney.
6Has a Golden Retriever named Gus.
7His favorite of all the movies he has worked on is Night of the Creeps (1986).
8During his childhood, he was a huge fan of science fiction and horror films.
9Member of Gamma Phi Fraternity.
10Graduated from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
