Frank Langella’s Oscar nomination for playing former president Richard Nixon in the 2008 film Frost/Nixon came after three decades as a celebrated New York stage actor. Langella’s always been on stage — right out of Syracuse University (1959) and into regional theater, summer stock and, by 1963, New York. After three Obie Awards, he made his Broadway debut in SEASCAPE (1975) and won a Tony award. His turn on stage as the star of DRACULA earned him a Tony nomination (1978) and a role in the film version (1979). He’s mostly known as a stage actor — he won another Tony for FORTUNE’S FOOL (2002), and a third for FROST/NIXON (2007) — but he’s worked steadily in television and film, with more high-profile roles in recent years. Langella’s many films include Masters of the Universe (1987), Dave (1993), Good Night, and Good Luck (2005) and Superman Returns (2006). He has also appeared in the television series The Americans (2015).
