Robert Vaughn
Born Nov. 22, 1932 in New York, NY
Robert Vaughn’s smooth-talking, dapper spy Napoleon Solo in the wildly popular 1960s show “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” might have been the only secret agent suave enough to give 007 a run for his money. But though he did cool well, Vaughn proved early on that he had other facets too.

In his film breakthrough “The Young Philadelphians” (1959), Vaughn starred opposite Paul Newman, playing alcoholic socialite Chet Gwynn, a man wrongly accused of murder. He earned both an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor for his performance.

Vaughn went on to snag a role as Lee, one of the seven hired gunmen in John Sturges' “The Magnificent Seven” (1960), playing opposite Steve McQueen and Yul Brynner.

Born in New York City in 1932 to a radio actor and an actress, Vaughn moved to Minnesota after his parents divorced. He then moved to Los Angeles where he earned a master's degree and a Ph.D. in communications from the University of Southern California.

After appearing in guest spots on television shows like “Law and Order,” Vaughn had a big comeback with his role as Albert Stroller in the series “Hustle” in 2004.

“With a modest amount of looks and talent and more than a modicum of serendipity,” he writes in his 2008 autobiography, “A Fortunate Life,” “I’ve managed to stretch my 15 minutes of fame into more than half a century of good fortune.”

Vaughn married actress Linda Staab in 1974. They live in Ridgefield, Conn., and have two children. — Nicky Loomis for the Los Angeles Times July 6, 2010
