Biography for Sorrel Booke

Sorrell Booke was born in Buffalo New York in in 1930, the son of a local physician. He found his calling early in life, like most actors, when his family encouraged him to entertain relatives by doing impressions and telling jokes. He went on to study at Yale and Columbia University, and mastered five languages. During the Korean War, Booke worked in counter-intelligence where his lingual talents served him well. His intelligence and subtlety are often overlooked when considering his signature role as Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg during his run on "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979). He died of cancer in 1994 just after his 64th birthday.

This actor did not have an exhilarating career. His interpretation in the series will remain his greatest role. The peculiarity of his journey comes from his participation in a French film, the felines of René Clément with Alain Delon and especially in the refusal of the actor to be in front of the camera after sheriff, make me scare.

He had become a cartoon twice (including Rock'o'Rico by Don Bluth). He died in 1994 because of cancer.
