George Segal (born February 13, 1934) is an American actor and musician. Segal became popular in the 1960s and 1970s for playing both dramatic and comedic roles. Some of his most acclaimed roles are in films such as Ship of Fools (1965), King Rat (1965), Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (1967), Where's Poppa? (1970), The Hot Rock (1972), Blume in Love (1973), A Touch of Class (1973), California Split (1974), For the Boys (1991), and Flirting with Disaster (1996). He was one of the first American film actors to rise to leading man status with an unchanged Jewish surname—thus paving the way for Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand.
He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and has won two Golden Globe Awards, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance in A Touch of Class.
Segal is also an accomplished banjo player. He has released three albums and has also performed the instrument in several of his acting roles and on late night television.

George Segal Jr. was born in Great Neck, New York, to Fannie Blanche Segal (née Bodkin) and George Segal Sr., a malt and hop agent. He is the youngest of four children; oldest brother, John, who worked in the hops brokerage business and was an innovator in the cultivation of new hop varieties, middle brother, Fred, a screenwriter, and a six-year-old sister, Greta, who died of pneumonia before Segal was born.
Segal's family was Jewish, but he was raised in a secular household. A paternal great-grandfather ran for governor of Massachusetts as a socialist. When asked if he had a bar mitzvah, Segal stated: "I'm afraid not. I went to a Passover Seder at Groucho Marx's once and he kept saying, 'When do we get to the wine?' So that's my Jewish experience. I went to a friend's bar mitzvah, and that was the only time I was in Temple Beth Shalom. Jewish life wasn't happening that much at the time. People's car tires were slashed in front of the temple. I was once kicked down a flight of stairs by some kids from the local parochial school".
All four of Segal's grandparents were Russian immigrants. His maternal grandparents changed their surname from Slobodkin to Bodkin. He first became interested in acting at the age of nine, when he saw Alan Ladd in This Gun for Hire. "I knew the revolver and the trenchcoat were an illusion and I didn't care," said Segal. "I liked the sense of adventure and control."
He states: "I started off with the ukulele when I was a kid in Great Neck. A friend had a red Harold Teen model; it won my heart. When I got to high school, I realized you couldn't play in a band with a ukulele, so I moved on to the four-string banjo."
When his father died in 1947, Segal moved to New York City with his mother. He graduated from George School in 1951, and attended Haverford College. He graduated from Columbia College of Columbia University in 1955 with a Bachelor of Arts in performing arts and drama. He studied at the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg and Uta Hagen.
Segal became a janitor at Circle in the Square. In 1956 Segal appeared in a production of Moliere's Don Juan in New York. The same year he got a job as an understudy in a Broadway production of The Iceman Cometh.
After serving in the United States Army, he appeared in Antony and Cleopatra for Joseph Papp and joined an improvisational group called The Premise, which performed at a Bleecker Street coffeehouse.
He made his film debut in The Young Doctors (1961), in a support role.
Segal came out to Hollywood from New York to star in a TV series with Robert Taylor. When that was cancelled after four episodes (it was never shown), he was signed to make The New Interns for Columbia. Columbia liked his work so much they put him under long-term contract. The role earned him the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year.
Segal was loaned to Warner Bros for Mike Nichols' classic adaptation of the Edward Albee play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1967). He played the young faculty member, Nick, a role for which he was nominated for an Oscar.
Segal was top-billed as a British secret service agent in The Quiller Memorandum (1966), a co-production between Fox and Rank.
Segal played another gangster in a TV version of The Desperate Hours (1967) directed by Ted Kotcheff. For the same director he played George in a TV version of Of Mice and Men (1968) with Nicol Williamson.
Segal went to Italy to star in The Girl Who Couldn't Say No (1968) with Virna Lisi, then to Africa for The Southern Star (1969) based on a Jules Verne novel and Yugoslavia for The Bridge at Remagen (1969), a World War Two film.
Back in Hollywood, Segal played a man laying waste to his marriage in Loving (1970). He followed this with Carl Reiner's celebrated dark comedy Where's Poppa? (1970), which became a major cult favorite.
Segal became really established as a movie star when he played a comically unfaithful husband in Melvin Frank's A Touch of Class (1973), opposite Glenda Jackson. The film was a box office hit and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. For A Touch of Class, he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, which was the second Golden Globe of his career.
He went on to play the titular midlife crisis victim in Paul Mazursky's acclaimed romantic comedy Blume in Love (1973), and was a dangerous computer scientist in The Terminal Man (1974), from a novel by Michael Crichton.
More popular was The Duchess and the Dirtwater Fox (1976), where he teamed with Goldie Hawn under the direction of Frank, and Fun with Dick and Jane (1977), where he played a bank robber opposite Jane Fonda, for Kotcheff.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Segal appeared frequently on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, nine times as a guest and once as a guest host. His appearances were marked by eccentric banter with Johnny Carson and were usually punctuated by bursts of banjo playing. In 1976, Segal co-hosted the Academy Awards.
Beginning in the 1980s, Segal began to appear in a number of television films, such as The Deadly Game (1982), Trackdown: Finding the Goodbar Killer (1983), The Cold Room (1984), The Zany Adventures of Robin Hood (1984), Not My Kid (1985) and Many Happy Returns (1986).. He did a Canadian film, Killing 'em Softly (1982).
Segal starred in a sitcom, Take Five (1987) which was created by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel. It was based on Segal's own life, being about a man who recently got divorced and played banjo "I don't have any hesitations about putting so much of myself before the audience in this role," said Segal. "I was looking for a comfortable format and that's what they've given me." But the show only ran a few episodes before being cancelled.
He tried another series Murphy's Law (1988–89) but it only lasted 13 episodes.
His career had dipped during this decade. He later reflected:
In the first 10 years, I was playing all different kinds of things. I loved the variety, and never had the sense of being a leading man but a character actor. Then I got frozen into this `urban' character. About the time of `The Last Married Couple in America' (1980) I remember Natalie (Wood) saying to me... `It's one typed role after another, and pretty soon you forget everything. You forget why you're here, why you're doing it.' Then my marriage started to fall apart... I was disenchanted, I was turning in on myself, I was doing a lot of self-destructive things... there were drugs... I'm also sure I was guilty of spoiled behavior. I think it's impossible when that star rush comes, not to get a little full of yourself, which is what I was.
He was in Time of Darkness (1991), Un orso chiamato Arturo (1992), Me Myself and I (1992), Look Who's Talking Now (1993), Army of One (1993) with Dolph Lundgren, Taking the Heat (1993), episodes of Murder, She Wrote and Burke's Law, Direct Hit (1994), Deep Down (1994), Seasons of the Heart (1994), and Picture Winows (1994).
He had a series of high profile roles: Flirting with Disaster (1996), The Cable Guy (1996), and The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996). Then he was in a number of episodes of The Naked Truth and Tracey Takes On as well as doing voice work on The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest.
"It's a total roller-coaster ride," he said of his career. "Freelance actors are essentially gamblers: You're gambling on yourself, and blindly, because there's nothing to substantiate your feelings. It all comes down to luck."
Just Shoot Me
From 1997 to 2003, however, Segal had his most prominent role in years when he starred in the NBC sitcom Just Shoot Me! as Jack Gallo, the owner and publisher of a New York City fashion magazine. He was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy in 1999 and 2000 as well as a Satellite Award in 2002 for this part. The show lasted for seven seasons and 148 episodes.
Segal currently appears on the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs (2013–present), playing the eccentric but loveable grandfather of a semi-autobiographical family based on that of series creator Adam F. Goldberg. The series entered its second season in September 2014 and is currently (2018) in its sixth season.
His later performances include Elsa & Fred (2014).
A banjo player, at Haverford College and Columbia University, he formed Bruno Lynch and his Imperial Jazz Band. He played with a dixieland jazz band while in college at Columbia that had several different names. When he booked a gig, he would bill the group as Bruno Lynch and his Imperial Jazzband. The group, which later settled on the name Red Onion Jazz Band, later played at his first wedding.
In the Army, his band was called Corporal Bruno's Sad Sack Six.
In 1967, Segal released his debut LP, The Yama Yama Man. The title track is a ragtime version of the 1908 tune "The Yama Yama Man" with horns and banjos. Segal released the album at a time when he appeared regularly playing banjo on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
In 1974, he played in A Touch of Ragtime, an album with his band, the Imperial Jazzband. During the 1970s and 1980s he made frequent television appearances with the "Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band", whose members included actor Conrad Janis on trombone. In 1981, they performed live at Carnegie Hall. Recent engagements in Los Angeles have included guest spots with the award-winning residency Guitarology.
In 2005, Segal played Dr. Dreck, a Jewish rapper, in the short film Chutzpah, This Is, although he did not perform his own raps. The group Chutzpah has releeased two albums since.
Segal has been married three times. He married film editor Marion Segal Freed in 1956, and they were together for 26 years until their divorce in 1983. They have two daughters. From 1983 until her death in 1996, he was married to Linda Rogoff, a one-time manager of The Pointer Sisters, whom he met at Carnegie Hall when he played the banjo with his band, the Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band. He married his former George School boarding school classmate Sonia Schultz Greenbaum in 1996.
