BiographyEdit

George Tobias was an American character actor who specialized in none-too-bright pals of the lead, though his range included villains and ethnic types. A native of New York City, he began acting at 15. He studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse and played on Broadway with the Theatre Guild, and with the Provincetown Players.

Tobias came to Hollywood in the late 1930's and quickly became a fixture in films of all genres, primarily at Warner Bros. He was a frequent foil for James Cagney and played everything from comedies to dramas and musicals. In the 1960's, he achieved greater fame as the long-suffering neighbor Abner Kravitz on the hit television show Bewitched (1964). Tobias retired in 1972. He died of cancer eight years later.
