George Segal was born in Great Neck, New York, in 1934. He had a magic act there when he was 10 and has been performing ever since.
A veteran of stage, television and film, Segal has amassed an impressive resume of projects that run the gamut from the lightest of comedies to the most heart wrenching of dramas.
He first gained critical attention as a distraught newlywed in Ship of Fools and as a P.O.W. in King Rat. He went on to garner an Oscar® nomination for his performance as Nick in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Among his many feature comedies are Where's Poppa?, The Owl and the Pussycat, A Touch of Class, Fun with Dick and Jane, Flirting with Disaster and Blume in Love.
Younger generations of viewers will recognize him from his successful seven-year run in Just Shoot Me! and more recently from his confident, jaunty turn as Hollywood manager Murray Berenson in the hit show Entourage. Other recent TV appearances include Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Boston Legal and Law & Order: SVU.
On the big screen, Segal appeared as Jake Gyllenhaal's father in Love & Other Drugs, as well as in Roland Emmerich's epic adventure 2012.
In 2017, Segal was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
He resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Sonia.
