He portrayed Ben Cheviot, the eventual head of Network 23, in Max Headroom (TV series).

He was himself nominated for an Academy Award for the 1968 comedy short film The Dove, a parody of Ingmar Bergman's films, which he co-directed as well as starred in.
In 1970 he originated the role of David in the original broadway cast of Stephen Sondheim's Company.
