Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor, playwright, screenwriter. (b. Nov. 12, 1943, New York City.) Short, frazzle-haired character actor with blubbery lower lip and distinctive lisp, who frequently plays nervous, untrustworthy characters (usually for laughs). He's also a talented writer with several plays to his credit, as well as the script for My Dinner With Andre (1981), a partially autobiographical film he penned with costar Andre Gregory. The son of longtime "New Yorker" editor William Shawn, he made his stage debut in 1977 in a self-translated production of Machia velli's "The Mandrake," and broke into films two years later with supporting roles in Bob Fosse's All That Jazz and Woody Allen's Manhattan
