James Karen’s work as an actor has spanned stage (including the original Broadway production of Streetcar Named Desire), television, and films. Some of his film credits include All the President’s Men, The China Syndrome, Poltergeist, Wall Street, The Pursuit of Happyness, Return of the Living Dead, and Mulholland Drive. To New Yorkers, his face is most familiar as that of television’s “The Pathmark Man.”
