While covering sports for the New Jersey Star-Ledger,  he studied acting at night, and he was eventually accepted by the Actor’s Studio. There he became a student of Lee Strasberg.  Performing with naturalism and a method-style commitment, Garfield found he could transfer journalism into acting.   ALLEN GARFIELD –>

“`Garfield would end up appearing in some of the best films of a generation, including The ConversationThe Candidate, The Owl and the PussycatNashville, Bananas, the redux of The Front Page, The Stunt Man, Gable and Lombard, Beverly Hills Cop II,  and The Cotton Club.
