Pat Harrington, Jr. Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Aug 13, 1929
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

The son of legendary vaudevillian Pat Harrington Sr., comic actor Pat Harrington Jr. rose to prominence via his many appearances on The Steve Allen Show and [[Feature~V119002~The Jack Paar Program~theprogram]] in the late 1950s. However, few viewers recognized him as Pat Harrington Jr.: instead, he passed himself off as Italian golf pro Guido Panzini, a guise so convincing that he was invited to play in several major tournaments. Once the public at large was apprised that Harrington was neither Italian nor a master duffer, demands for his services as an actor increased immeasurably. In 1959, he was cast on The Danny Thomas Show as Danny's new son-in-law Pat Hannigan (Thomas had planned to spin off Harrington and his TV daughter [[Performer~P55126~Penney Parker~penneyparker]] into their own series, but this was not to be). In 1962, he served as host of [[Feature~V47480~Stump the Stars,~stumpthestars]] a revamped version of the old Summer replacement perennial Pantomime Quiz. Seven years later, he was seen as sharkish PR man Tony Lawrence on the short-lived TV adaptation of [[Feature~V33624~Mr. Deeds Goes to Town.~mrdeedsgoestotown]] In 1975, Harrington landed his signature role as macho, aphorism-spouting handyman Dwayne Schneider on the TV sitcom One Day at a Time; he remained with the series until its cancellation in 1984, earning an Emmy along the way. In films, Pat Harrington Jr. has been seen in a gallery of diverse portrayals, most amusingly as smoothly villainous telephone company spokesman Arlington Haven in [[Feature~V39071~The President's Analyst~thepresidentsanalyst]] (1967). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
