A quintessential character actor, Phillip Pine was not known for playing just one role. He once noted that late in his career, while appearing as a judge on a TV show, he looked around the set and realized that at some point he had portrayed every character type who was present that day. Pine's stellar career as a character actor--his dark good looks and bushy, expressive eyebrows allowed him to play a variety of nationalities and personalities--lasted 60 years and featured appearances in more than 160 movies and television shows such as the sci-fi classics, "The Twilight Zone" and "Star Trek", and Robert Wise's overlooked boxing feature, "The Set-Up". Pine got his start on stage and enjoyed a solid career on and off-Broadway, replacing James Dean in "The Immortalist" and acting with Zero Mostel in "A Stone for Danny Fisher". Pine also wrote and directed feature films in the 1970s and '80s. Efforts included the wayward teen drama, "The Cat Ate the Parakeet", and the Western, "Posse from Heaven".
