Biography

Veteran character actor John Schuck is perhaps best known for playing Herman Munster on the late-'80s sitcom "The Munsters Today". A native of Boston, Schuck earned a theater degree at Ohio's Denison University and honed his stage chops at San Francisco's American Conservatory Theater. Discovered on stage by acclaimed filmmaker Robert Altman, Schuck earned a small yet memorable role on the director's classic 1970 comedy-satire "MASH", and went on to appear in several more Altman-directed efforts, including "Brewster McCloud" (1970), "McCabe & Mrs. Miller" (1971), and "Thieves Like Us" (1974). On TV, Schuck regularly played slow-witted characters, for six seasons starring alongside Rock Hudson as the doltish Sgt. Charles Enright on the '70s cop drama "McMillan & Wife". But it was the actor's heavily costumed roles, first as a crime-fighting robot on the short-lived sitcom "Holmes & Yo-Yo", and later as the eternally childlike ghoul Herman Munster on "The Munsters Today", that solidified his reputation as a physical comedic actor. In the late '80s and early '90s Shuck broadened his range somewhat with a recurring role as a Klingon ambassador in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" (1986) and "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" (1991), and returned to the stage in 2006 as Daddy Warbucks in the Broadway revival of "Annie".
