President of Screen Actors Guild (SAG). [1981-1985]

Has been a longtime supporter and admirer of convicted, alleged cop murderer, Black Panther and radical activist Mumia Abu-Jamal. He believes in Jamal's innocence, and has long opposed the death penalty.

His wife's nephew, Gavin Newsom, was elected mayor of San Francisco in 2003.

Was a member of the Compass Players, a predecessor to the famed Second City of Chicago.

Only actor to win Emmys for playing the same character (Lou Grant) in both a comedy ("Mary Tyler Moore" (1970)) and a drama ("Lou Grant" (1977)).

Credited as assisted in funding for Roger & Me (1989).
