About Charles Durning (1923 – 2012)

Many movie fans first noticed Charles Durning as the crooked cop in the Oscar-winning smash hit, THE STING; (1973). He again played a police detective and chief negotiator in the tense 1975 true crime drama, DOG DAY AFTERNOON.

Since then he has had many memorable parts including: the President in TWILIGHT'S LAST GLEAMING; (1977), a shady businessman in TRUE CONFESSIONS; (1981), a singing, dancing governor of Texas in THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS; (1982, an Oscar-nominated turn), and a Nazi in TO BE OR NOT TO BE;(1983, another Oscar nomination).

He played a regular in the television comedy show, EVENING SHADE. The show ran for 4 years, from 1990 to 1994.

In the Coen Brothers movie O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU? (2000), Durning plays the curmudgeonly governor and good ol' boy, Pappy O'Daniel, who plays an instrumental role in returning escaped cons to the outside world.

Durning has performed in over 200 television and film projects.
