Default Let us remember Paul Winfield

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PAUL WINFIELD 1941-2004
Actor acclaimed for stage, film and TV work

Douglas Martin, New York Times
Tuesday, March 9, 2004



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------






Paul Winfield, an actor known for his versatility and power in stage, film and television roles that included a highly praised televised portrayal of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1978 and an Oscar-nominated part in "Sounder" in 1972, died Sunday in Los Angeles. He was 62.

The cause was a heart attack, his agent, Michael Livingston, said.

In 1968,Winfield played the boyfriend of Diahann Carroll in her situation comedy "Julia." Four years later, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of the father in Martin Ritt's "Sounder."

His appearances in many television roles, from a starring part in "The Charmings" in 1987 to being a voice on "The Simpsons" in 1998, gave him a long and steady career, and some accolades.

His portrayal of the title role in the miniseries "King" in 1978 won an Emmy nomination for best actor. His interpretation of a college chancellor willing to sing Negro spirituals to get donations for his school in "Roots: The Next Generation" in 1979 received an Emmy nomination for best supporting actor. He won an Emmy in 1995 for his guest appearance as a federal judge whose rulings on busing inner-city children are challenged by one of the town's leading citizens in "Picket Fences."

Late in his career, Winfield played more and more authority figures, like his acclaimed portrayal of the sarcastic but sagacious judge in the 1990 feature film "Presumed Innocent."

He also played a human Starfleet captain in the 1982 film "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," and later an alien captain on a 1991 episode of TV's "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

Other significant roles included appearing in the Broadway play "Checkmates" with Denzel Washington, playing Don King in a 1995 HBO movie and portraying the adoptive father of two Vietnamese children in the feature film "Catfish in Black Bean Sauce" in 1999.

Paul Edward Winfield was born on May 22, 1941, in Los Angeles. He was raised by a single mother, Lois Edwards, a union organizer, until he was 8, when his mother married his stepfather.

He attended the predominantly white Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles and was named best actor for three years in a row in an annual Southern California high school drama competition. He studied drama at four colleges before leaving UCLA six credits short of a degree.

He became a contract player at Columbia Pictures and caught the eye of Burgess Meredith, who cast him in two Amiri Baraka stage plays. That caught the eye of Sidney Poitier, who hired him in 1969 for "The Lost Man," his first movie role.

Winfield is survived by his sister, Patricia Wilson, of Las Vegas.

I'm fairly new to the board so I'm taking the time to peruse the threads that were started before I came aboard.

Paul Winfield was a great actor. I still enjoy hearing his voice on the cityconfidential reruns. He was an awesome narrator for that show. If they ever make any new episodes, it will be strange not hearing his voice.
