Joe Seneca


Born: 14 / 1 / 1919 , Cleveland , Usa – 15/08/1996

BIOGRAPHY:

Seneca was born Joel McGhee, Jr. in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to his acting career, he belonged to the R&B singing group The Three Riffs, who were active from the late 1940s and performed at upscale supper clubs in New York City.

He was also a songwriter and had big hits with “Talk to Me” which was sung by Little Willie John, and “Break It to Me Gently”, which was a smash hit twice, once by Brenda Lee in 1962, and once by Juice Newton in 1982.

In the 1982 film, The Verdict, Seneca plays the supporting role of Dr. Thompson, a small-town women’s hospital physician brought in by attorney Frank Galvin (Paul Newman) to support his belief that two famous doctors’ incompetence left his client alive but in a coma. Seneca’s performance, while subdued, brings a gritty realism to the court proceedings and was one of his more important film roles. Arguably his most well-known roles are that of bluesman Willie Brown in Crossroads (1986) and Dr. Meddows in The Blob (1988), the evil head of a government team sent to contain the title creature.
