Biography

John McMartin is one of those "You know, that guy who was in. .." actors. His decades-long career began with an appearance in a small role in the durable TV omnibus series "Armstrong Circle Theater" (1958). Not long after this, he landed his first significant New York stage part as Corporal Jester, one of a pair of bickering lovers, in the long-running spoof musical "Little Mary Sunshine" (1959). The role was enormously beneficial not only to McMartin's career, but also to his personal life--he won a Theater World Award for his performance, and went on to marry the show's producer, Cynthia Baer, with whom he had two daughters. This was the start of a very long and busy career in the Big Three--TV, movies, and theater. Among his dozens of televised appearances were multi-episode roles in the police drama "Hawaii Five-O" (1971), the popular nighttime soap-opera "Falcon Crest" (1985), and the dark HBO prison drama "Oz" (2000). In film, he showed up in a small role as a journalist in the Watergate thriller "All The President's Men" (1976) and a larger one as wealthy businessman Huntington Hartford in the 2004 sex-researcher biopic "Kinsey", among many other movies. He also originated the role of the shy Oscar Lindquist in the hit Broadway musical "Sweet Charity" (1966), and played and sang the part in the 1969 film adaptation of the same name.
