Barry Miller has played leads and supporting roles on stage, screen, and television. In movies, he made his debut at age 16 playing the younger version of notorious gangster Louis "Lepke" Buchalter (played by Tony Curtis). One of his best-known film roles is that of the depressed Bobby C., who drunkenly falls off the Verrazano Narrow Bridge after accidentally impregnating a girl in Saturday Night Fever (1977). Miller debuted on Broadway in 1980 and five years later earned a Tony and a Drama Desk Award for his role in Neil Simon's Biloxi Blues (1985). The son of actors Sidney Miller and Dorothy Green, Miller is frequently cast in "ethnic" roles.
