Victor Buono Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Larger than life, Laughtonesque, and with an eloquent, king-sized appetite for maniacal merriment, a good portion of the work of actor Victor Buono was squandered on hokey villainy on both film and television.

1[on Shakespeare] The more you study him, the greater he grows.
2I've heard or read about actors being asked the immortal question "Why have you never married?". They answer with the immortal excuse "I just haven't found the right girl." Because I'm on the hefty side, no one's asked me yet. If they do, that's the answer I'll give. After all, if it was good enough for Monty Clift or Sal Mineo...
3In 1938, of parents properly licensed to produce babies, I was born. I am now rich, famous, devilishly handsome and thirty-three years old. And I don't anticipate a time in the future when I shall be anything other than rich, famous, devilishly handsome and thirty-three years old.
4Being on Batman (1966) allowed me to do something we actors are taught never to do: overact.
1He was awarded the 1972 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Performance for "Henry IV, Part I," at the Mark Taper Forum Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
2Parents are Victor Francis Buono (1907-1981) and Myrtle Belle Buono (1909-1979).
3Attended and graduated from Villanova University in Radnor Township, Pennsylvania.
4Attended and graduated from St. Augustine High School in San Diego, California.
5Victor Buono passed away 12 years before the same day as Batman (1966) Special Guest Villain Cesar Romero.
6Victor Buono passed away on January 1, 1982, a month away from what would have been his 44th birthday on February 3.
7Following his untimely death, he was interred with his mother Myrtle Buono at Greenwood Memorial Park in San Diego, California.
8Became very popular on the television talk show circuit due to his wit and wisdom. He made several appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) which helped put his comedy album "Heavy!" on the map. He performed a special version of "Fat Man's Prayer", and sold over over 60,000 the following week. Other cuts included "A Word to the Wide" and "We're the Most".
9In 1980, Buono played the memory-impaired Reverend Jim Ignatowski's millionaire father on Taxi (1978). In actuality, he was only eight months older than Christopher Lloyd, who played Jim. Buono's death in 1982 was written into the series with an episode about Jim's father passing away.
10Will always be remembered by baby-boomers for his roles as the nefarious King Tut and Count Carlos Manzeppi on the television series Batman (1966) and The Wild Wild West (1965), respectively.
11Was a frequent guest on talk shows, reciting his own original poetry. Ultimately, in 1971, he recorded some of this poetry on the album "Heavy!" on a small label.
12Buono liked to read and write, and one of his main hobbies was Shakespeare. He was also highly regarded as a gourmet chef.
