Mini biography

After graduating from Indiana University in Bloomington, Kline completed his graduate studies in Drama at the Juilliard School in New York. In 1972, Kline joined the Acting Company in New York which was run by actor John Houseman. With this company, Kline performed Shakespeare across the country. Kline's roles as Hamlet and Romeo won rave reviews from critics and audiences. On the stage, Kline has won two Tony Awards for his work in the musicals "On the Twentieth Century (1978)" and "The Pirates of Penzance (1981)". After working on the Television soap "Search for Tomorrow (1951)", Kline went to Hollywood where his first film was 'Sophie's Choice (1982)'. In this film he would be nominated for a Golden Globe and receive acclaim. His work in the ensemble cast of 'The Big Chill (1983)' would again be highly successful so that when Kasdan wrote one of the best westerns ever written, Kline would be part of the cast of 'Silverado (1985)'. With his role as Otto "Don't call me Stupid!" West in the film 'A Fish Called Wanda (1988)', Kline would win the Oscar for Supporting Actor. Kline could play classic roles such as Hamlet in "Hamlet (1990/II) (TV)"; or a swashbuckling actor like Douglas Fairbanks in 'Chaplin (1992)'; or a comedic role in 'Soapdish (1991)'. Kline also had Golden Globe nominations for 'Soapdish (1991)' and 'Dave (1993)'. In all the films that he has worked in, it is hard to find a performance that is not well done, except for the French accent in 'French Kiss (1995)'. In 1989, Kline married actress Phoebe Cates.
