Actor Eli Wallach Passes Away
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.25.2014

Coming Soon reports that film, TV and stage actor Eli Wallach has passed away at the age of 98. His daughter Katherine broke the news.

Wallach was a character actor for sixty years, most known for his villainous roles in Westerns like The Magnificent Seven and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly. He also appeared in The Misfits (starring Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe) and played Don Altobello in The Godfather Part III.

Wallach was born in 1915 in Red Hook, Brooklyn. He was enlisted in the Army during World War II and started his career in Broadway in 1945. He won a Tony Award in 1951 for his performance in Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo. His first film role was in 1956 in Elia Kazan's Baby Doll (written by Williams). He won a BAFTA Award for "Most Promising Newcomer." His most recent roles included Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Roman Polanski's The Ghost Writer in 2010. He was never nominated for an Oscar, but did get an Honorary Academy Award at the 2010 Governor's Awards for being "the quintessential chameleon, effortlessly inhabiting a wide range of characters, while putting his inimitable stamp on every role."

On behalf of 411, our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Wallach.
