"I was born a character actor. I was never really a leading man type."

Oliver Burgess Meredith (November 16, 1907 – September 9, 1997) was an American actor, director, producer, and writer whose career encompassed stage, film, and television and spanned seven decades.

He was a lifetime member of the Actors' Studio by invitation, won several Emmy Awards, was nominated for two Academy Awards, and was the first male actor to win the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor twice. His best-known roles are in the Rocky series as Mickey Goldmill, Rocky Balboa's manager, and in Batman (the 1966-1968 TV series) as The Penguinnote .
