Biography

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor. (b. June 20, 1940, Manchester, England.) One of the most solidly American character players on-screen, Mahoney is actually British! He determined to lose his accent when he moved here in the 1950s, and succeeded. Although the soft-spoken, white-haired Mahoney only took up acting as he approached middle age, following a career in medical journalism, he has achieved a critical and commercial success many performers never attain. He spent his showbiz salad days on stage, winning a Tony for his performance as the sad-sack songwriter in "The House of Blue Leaves." After small roles in Code of Silence (1985) and Streets of Gold (1986), Mahoney raised eyebrows in a brace of 1987 movies, first as one of the aluminum-siding hustlers in Tin Men next as the biased judge in Suspect and then as Olympia Dukakis' hapless suitor in Moonstruck This parlay propelled him to the front ranks of working character actors. He was a deceptively benign white supremacist in Betrayed a weary coach in Eight Men Out (both 1988), a kindly father with a secret in EB> (1989), and a CIA creep in The Russia House (1990). In 1991 he was seen to advantage in Barton Fink as a Faulkneresque screenwriter, and stood out among a distinguished cast in the unsuccessful Article 99 (1992). Other films include In the Line of Fire, Striking Distance (both 1993), and The Hudsucker Proxy (1994). He has also been active in TV movies, including Dinner at Eight (1989, opposite Lauren Bacall), The Image (1990, opposite Albert Finney), and David Mamet's The Water Engine (1992), and costars in the TV sitcom "Frasier" (1993- ).
