DUVALL, Robert

(1931– )
   Robert Duvall has been a distinguished actor over a long film career that began in the 1960s. An actor in television Westerns early on, his first cinema Western was a supporting part in True Grit (1969). Since then he has played major roles in such Westerns as Joe Kidd (1972), Geronimo:An American Legend(1993), and Kevin Costner’s Open Range(2003). In 2006 he played the lead in the television movie Broken Trail, which was written especially for him. Duvall’s combination of gritty earthiness and practical, everyday-living style of acting has brought him much acclaim. He has been nominated for six Academy awards and won best actor in 1984 for Tender Mercies (1973), a non-Western.
