Steve Landesberg Biography
Birthday: November 23, 1936 (Sagittarius)
Born In: The Bronx, New York, United States
Steve Landsberg was an American actor, comic, and voice actor, who is best known for playing Arthur P. Dietrich on the sitcom 'Barney Miller'. His career on stage as a stand-up comic shone the spotlight on his dry wit and offbeat delivery, which was very much in evidence in his character on 'Barney Miller'. This role got him three Emmy nominations. Apart from this, he played a variety of supporting characters over the years, in television as well as movies, including a role as a psychiatrist in the Jason Segel-written movie, ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’. Fans have also often recognised his characteristic dry, deep voice in various commercials and cartoons over the years. He fooled the whole world by never revealing his real age, preferring instead to give a lower number whenever he was asked about his age, because he wanted to straddle both younger and older generations at the same time. His actual age was only revealed by his daughter after his death.
