The Tony Award-winning actor has been in the business for almost 50 years. He began his career on the Broadway stage before transitioning to film with Frank Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Housewife” and Mel Brooks’ “The Twelve Chairs” in 1970. He’s never left the Great White Way, continuing to land stage roles throughout his career. He was cast as the lead in Peter Morgan’s “Frost/Nixon” in 2007, for which he won his third Tony Award, and he was later nominated for an Academy Award for his reprisal of the role in the film adaption of the play in 2008, which was directed by Ron Howard.
Langella most recently appeared in this year’s biblical blockbuster “Noah” and the sports drama “Draft Day,” and he just wrapped on the upcoming “Grace of Monoco,” which stars Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly.
