This trim, intense actor is best-known for his role as John Merrick in Broadway's "The Elephant Man" (1979), a show he also co-produced. Anglim began acting at Yale, then branched out to stock and regional theater. He spent a year in the Southbury (Connecticut) Playhouse, before appearing in such shows as "What the Butler Saw" and "The Contrast" (both in Cincinnati, 1975) and "Snow White" (New York, 1976). Anglim also had a bit part in the TV-movie, "Muhammed", in which "my camel spit at me". But Anglim was still largely unknown when he optioned the London play about the deformed 19th-century "The Elephant Man". It debuted off-Broadway at St. Peter's Church before moving to The Booth Theater on Broadway in 1979.
