Jeffrey Lane

Jeffrey Lane was most recently represented on Broadway by his work with David Yazbek for the musical version of Pedro Almodóvar's "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown." His work for "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" earned him both Tony and Drama Desk nominations, as well as the Drama League Award for Best Musical. Perhaps best known for such television programs as "Mad About You," "Ryan's Hope," "Lou Grant," "Cagney & Lacey," "The AFI Life Achievement Awards," "The Tony Awards," "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd," and the miniseries "The Murder of Mary Phagan," he is the winner of five Emmy Awards, three Writers Guild Awards, two Peabodys, a Golden Globe and the Christopher Award, and the relatively good-natured loser of many more. According to imdb.com, he also played Clarice's father in the film "The Silence of the Lambs." But he didn't.
