What I found on Tony Randall:
- Star of "The Odd Couple", as Felix Unger. Tony had a long film career before this role and he frequently appears on the stage. He always dreamed of founding a permanent American theatrical company similar to the national theaters existing in almost every European country. In 1991, Randall founded the National Actors' Theater in New York, having a decidely mixed track record of success and has barely been able to continue on. As most people know, Tony became a first-time father in his middle seventies (he was born in 1923). His first wife died after 50 years of marriage. He now has a son and daughter with his second wife. Tony was born Leopold Rosenberg. He may seem like a `total` New Yorker, but was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. (Where he went to Hebrew school) coming to New York just before WWII to study acting and except for four years in the army during the war (he was a lieutenant in the Signal Corps) he never left New York again.
