Biography

A veteran of radio, TV, film, and stage, Booth Colman first earned his reputation as a versatile character actor in the 1950s, playing roles as diverse as they were numerous. Colman began his career as a child actor performing on local radio plays in his native Portland, Oregon. After serving in the United States Army in World War II, Colman landed in New York where he earned a coveted spot with the Maurice Evans theatre company, which performed numerous Shakespearean plays on Broadway through the 1940s and '50s. Colman's film debut came with a tiny uncredited role in the classic Howard Hawks-directed western "The Big Sky," but he made his biggest impact as a TV actor, playing various fatherly, professorial, or authoritarian characters on series ranging from the Chuck Connors-starring western "The Rifleman" in the early 1960s to the Disney Channel tween comedy The Suite Life of Zack and Cody in the first decade of the 21st century. He also played a judge in two different films by Joel and Ethan Coen, "The Man Who Wasn't There" and "Intolerable Cruelty."
