Biography

Barry Newman is an actor who has worked in film and television for nearly 50 years. He began his career on screen with a lead supporting role in the gangster crime-drama "Pretty Boy Floyd" in 1960. In 1971 Newman starred in "Vanishing Point" and gained a cult audience for his portrayal of Kowalski, the drug-fueled former cop, who makes a hasty road trip from Denver to San Francisco to elude the police. From big screen to small, Newman again made a name for himself in 1974, as the title character in the crime drama "Petrocelli", as the lawyer Anthony J. Petrocelli. Susan Howard played his wife, Maggie, and the series ran for 45 episodes over two seasons. After several supporting roles through the rest of the '70s and the '80s, in 1989 Newman co-starred with Suzanne Pleshette on the TV drama "Nightingales", which lasted a season. In his later career, Newman made guest appearances on the TV hits such as the mystery series "Murder, She Wrote", the cop drama "NYPD Blue", and the primetime soap "The O.C.". Newman also appeared on screen in Steven Soderbergh's dramatic thriller, "The Limey", as Jim Avery, in 1999, and as Josh Hartnett's dad in the 2002 romantic comedy "40 Days and 40 Nights".
