Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:
Famed stand-up comedian who has proven himself a formidable actor in a number of comedic and dramatic roles. In his teens, he began performing comedy in the Catskills and gradually moved to cabarets, then opened for such performers as Judy Garland and Lena Horne. King's film career began in the 1950s with small parts in films like Miracle in the Rain (1956) and The Helen Morgan Story (1957), and he costarred with a young Sean Connery in Operation Snafu (1961). After years of TV and nightclub success, he returned to films when Sidney Lumet called on him to appear in Bye Bye Braverman (1968) and The Anderson Tapes (1972). Since his acclaimed starring performance as a harried business tycoon in Lumet's Just Tell Me What You Want (1980), King has been busier than ever, with solid supporting roles in Author! Author!, I, the Jury (both 1982), Lovesick (1983), Cat's Eye (1985), Memories of Me (1988, actually more of a costar turn as Billy Crystal's father), Enemies, A Love Story (1989, as Rabbi Lembeck), The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990, getting one of the best scenes in this bad movie), and Night and the City (1992, as a mobster cum fight promoter). He displays his storytelling skills in the documentary Funny (1989). King has also written three books and produced several stage plays and movies, including Cattle Annie and Little Britches (1980) and Wolfen (1981).
