In 1960, Jerry Orbach (1935-2004) created the role of flamboyant interlocutor El Gallo in the long-running off-Broadway smash The Fantasticks; the show closed in 2002. He has since starred in such Broadway productions as Carnival (1961), revivals of Guys and Dolls (1965) and Annie Get Your Gun (1966), Promises Promises (1968), 6 Rms Riv Vu (1972), Chicago (1975) and 42nd Street (1980). He was nominated for Tony Awards for his roles in Guys and Dolls and Chicago, winning the 1969 Tony Award for Best Actor (Musical) in Promises, Promises. Starting with 1985's Brewster's Millions, the actor managed to show up in at least one movie per year. Orbach's more fondly remembered screen roles include the part of Jennifer Grey's father in Dirty Dancing (1987), the voice of Lumiere, the candelabra, in the Oscar winning animated feature Beauty and the Beast (1990) and Billy Crystal's easily amused agent in Mr. Saturday Night (1992).
