Ben Gazzara’s career spanned originating the role of Brick in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” on Broadway, to appearing in the Coen brothers’ “The Big Lebowski,” on film – as well as a number of John Cassavetes’ movies.  The New York native studied acting at the New School and the Actors Studio, where his classmates included Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, James Dean, Julie Harris, and Geraldine Page.  He died at the age of 81, recently.  And you can hear his interview with Leonard from 2004, for his memoir, In the Moment.
