John Randolph (1915 - 2004) was a prolific Tony Award-winning actor.
He was born Emanuel Hirsch Cohen in New York City to Jewish parents Dorothy and Louis Cohen. He made his Broadway debut in 1938 in Coriolanus.
He was the last blacklisted actor to regain employment in Hollywood films when director John Frankenheimer cast him in the lead role in Seconds in 1966. Randolph was in the original New York stage productions of The Sound of Music, Paint Your Wagon, and The Visit. He won the 1987 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play for his performance in the Neil Simon play, Broadway Bound. He made his last Broadway appearance in 1991 in Prelude to a Kiss.
He starred in the emotionally-powerful drama A Foreign Field (1993) as a World War II veteran. One of his last movie roles was in 1998 as Tom Hanks's crass businessman of a grandfather in You've Got Mail, but perhaps he is best known for playing the father of main character Charlie Partana (played by Jack Nicholson) in Prizzi's Honor or as Clark W. Griswold, Sr. in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (with Chevy Chase).
