Burt Young's Gallery 

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Squat character actor who has specialized in playing seedy roles, and is probably best remembered as Sylvester Stallone's brother-in-law, Paulie, in Rocky (1976, for which he earned an Oscar nomination) and the film's four sequels. He studied acting with Lee Strasberg and went on to score supporting roles in The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight (1971), Cinderella Liberty (1973), Chinatown (1974), The Killer Elite (1975), and Harry and Walter Go to New York (1976). Aside from a leading role as a trumpet player in Uncle Joe Shannon (1978, which he also wrote), Young has mostly played variations on cretinous archetypes in Amityville II: The Possession, Lookin' to Get Out (both 1982), Once Upon a Time in America (1984), The Pope of Greenwich Village (also 1984, one of his best performances, as "Bedbug Eddie"), Back to School (1986), Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989), Betsy's Wedding (1990), and Excessive Force (1993). He made an impressive Broadway debut in "Cuba and His Teddy Bear" and starred in the short-lived TV sitcom "Roomies" (1987).
