Biography

A tall and charming Brooklyn boy at heart, actor Elliott Gould carved a path into Hollywood with hulking, dark-haired looks that veered away from the traditional matinee archetype. His career began on Broadway, but Gould went on to briefly became the embodiment of a disenchanted youth culture in antiestablishment films such as "Bob & Ted & Carol & Alice" (1969) and "M*A*S*H" (1971). His strong synergy with '70s audiences went adrift in the 1980s, however, before NBC's popular 1990s sitcom "Friends" (1994-2004) managed to up the consistently working actor's visibility. Coming full circle, Gould came face to face with the reverence of talents whose clout set the stage for his return to onscreen rebellion in 2001's heist comedy "Ocean's Eleven" and its two subsequent sequels.
