Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

His ungainly bulk and jowly, hangdog countenance rule out this fine actor for the conventional leading-man assignments such as those given his younger brother Dennis, but Randy has done pretty well for himself as a supporting player and offbeat character lead. Director Peter Bogdanovich more or less discovered him as a drama student and featured him in several of his early films: Targets (1968), The Last Picture Show (1971), What's Up, Doc? (1972), and Paper Moon (1973). He earned an Oscar nomination for his role as a hapless sailor in The Last Detail (1973), and over the years has landed a series of multifaceted roles that attest to his versatility: Chevy Chase's addlebrained relative in National Lampoon's Vacation (1983) and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989), Lennie to Robert Blake's George in a TV remake of Of Mice and Men (1981), Mitch in a distinguished TV version of A Streetcar Named Desire (1984), President Lyndon Johnson (an inspired piece of casting) in LBJ: The Early Years (1987, telefilm), and the Frankenstein monster in a cable TV version of Frankenstein (1993). He also spent one season on TV's "Saturday Night Live" (1985-86). He's appeared with brother Dennis on stage in Sam Shepard's play "True West," and on film in The Long Riders (1980) with several other sets of acting brothers. He also starred in his own TV sitcom, "Davis Rules" (1990-92).
