Eli Wal­lach, vet­eran char­ac­ter ac­tor, dies at 98

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

NEW YORK (AP) — As a mas­ter­ful char­ac­ter ac­tor and early prod­uct of post­war, Method-style the­ater, Eli Wal­lach wore count­less faces, dis­ap­pear­ing into them all. But he was al­ways pro­pelled — in act­ing and in life — by a mis­chievous­ness and an abid­ing play­ful­ness that made him a tire­less per­former, an en­dur­ing fam­ily man and, of course, one im­mor­tal scoundrel.

Wal­lach died Tues­day evening from nat­u­ral causes af­ter 98 years of life, 66 years of mar­riage and some 100 films.
