Kevin Kline

Kevin Delaney Kline (born October 24, 1947) was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Known for his exuberant acting abilities, Kline attended the prestigous Julliard School in New York. In 1972, he joined an acting group which took him across the country performing Shakespeare, which led him to Broadway where he won two Tony Awards. When a film version of The Pirates of Penzance was made (for which he won a Tony Award), he was invited to reprise his role as the Pirate King. This film launched his career forward.

He has won an Academy Award for A Fish Called Wanda[?], a Gotham Actor Award, a Hasty Pudding Theatricals Man of the Year Award, and a St. Louis International Film Festival Lifetime Achievement Award.

He is married to actress Phoebe Cates, who is 16 years his junior.
