Biography

A prolific character actor of stage, screen and TV, John Glover exhibited a knack for playing all manner of smarmy villains; notably a drunken lout in "Julia" (1977), a sleazy pornographer in "52 Pick-Up" (1986), Lee Remick's ingratiating sidekick in "Nutcracker: Money, Madness and Murder" (CBS, 1987) and a campy, manipulative heavy in the TV remake of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" (ABC, 1991). Glover also made an indelible impression in "Annie Hall" (1977), as the actor boyfriend of Diane Keaton who wants her to touch his heart--with her foot!--and as the young man dying of AIDS in "An Early Frost" (NBC, 1985), for which he earned an Emmy nomination.
