About Ned Beatty (1937 – )
Born on July 6, 1937 in Louisville, Kentucky, Ned Beatty would become a man with a personal love life as loaded as his professional resume. Rumored to have married four times throughout his lifetime, his first marriage resulted in the first four of what would become eight children. Though her name remains unknown, she was the first of four wives, followed by Belinda Beatty and Dorothy "Tinker" Lindsey with whom Beatty had two kids each. His current marriage to Sandra Johnson began in 1999. The two have plans to build a home near Sandra's family in Minnesota.

Professionally, however, Ned Beatty was infamous for his role as the stocky, genial-looking actor who has mastered the art of the supporting role. Throughout his career Beatty has continued to display his versatility as an actor. His first film cast him alongside Burt Reynolds in the 1972's suspenseful Deliverance. Developing an integral relationship with his co-star, Burt has personally cast Beatty alongside himself in future films such as 1973's White Lightning, W.W. And The Dixie Dancekings (1975), and 1983's Stroker Ace.

Most of Ned's success occurred in the 1970's when Hollywood producers found roles for Beatty in key films such as 1975's Nashville and 1976's Network, where Beatty's performance won him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Other notable roles thereafter include his performance as an undercover FBI agent in Silver Streak (1976), and Lex Luther's assistant in 1978's major motion picture Superman and its sequel, Superman 2.

Throughout the 1980s Beatty found success from his roles in The Big Easy (1987), and The Fourth Protocol (1987). Ned Beatty ended the decade with the delightful Hear My Song (1991).

The nineties marked a transition to more fatherly-roles for his appropriately typecast look. Ned Beatty also began to avidly pursue a career in TV appearing in 1993's Homicide: Life on the Street.

In 2002 the Laurence Olivier Theatre nominated him for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in 2001's Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. Recently, Beatty gave a top-notch performance in 2003's Where The Red Fern Grows.
