Biography

Barry Gordon is a character actor with a prolific career in television, beginning as a child star. At age six he began appearing on "The Jack Benny Program." In 1960, he appeared on the iconic sitcom "Leave It to Beaver." As an adult, Gordon's first recurring role came on "The New Dick Van Dyke Show," the early 1970s revival of the original classic from the '60s. In 1977, he landed a lead character role on the sitcom "Fish," which starred Abe Vigoda in a spin-off from "Barney Miller." Gordon appeared as Charlie Harrison in all 35 episodes of the two-season series. In the early '80s, Gordon played Archie Bunker's Jewish accountant, Gary Rabinowitz, on "Archie Bunker's Place," the follow-up to the comedy classic "All in the Family." By 1987, Gordon landed a major part in a very different genre - animation - a field that would define much of his later career: as Donatello, he was one of the lead voices on the hugely successful action-adventure cartoon "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." The series became a major franchise, spinning off into a TV mini-series as well as various video games. Gordon continued with multiple voice-over gigs in animation for the next two decades, and his live action work included a 2004-2005 appearance on the irreverent HBO comedy "Curb Your Enthusiasm" as a Rabbi. Gordon served as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1988 to 1995. Gordon ran unsuccessfuly for congress in 1996.
