James Broderick (March 7 1927 – November 1 1982) was an American actor.

He played the father on the television show "Family" from 1976 to 1980, receiving an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 1978.

His notable film roles include the father figure of a New England commune in "Alice's Restaurant" (1969), and an FBI agent in "Dog Day Afternoon" (1975).

University of New Hampshire

In 1947, James Broderick, a junior pre-med student, auditioned for a part in the UNH production of George Bernard Shaw's "Arms and the Man." Theater director Joe Batcheller was impressed and gave him the role of Bluntchili, an anti-romantic Swiss soldier. "You could tell from the beginning that he was an exceptional individual," Batcheller said. "He displayed an unusual ability to get along with people. He was kind, sensitive, imaginative, and had a good sense of humor. He also had an Irish mug if I ever saw one," Batcheller added.

Although Batcheller didn't often encourage the students to pursue acting as a career, he was so sure of Broderick's talent, he suggested he go to New York and look up his friend Arthur Kennedy, who was well known in the acting field. Broderick took his advice and Kennedy subsequently directed him to the Neighborhood Playhouse. There, he gained the necessary experience and training for a successful acting career in both the movies and TV. He died from cancer in 1982, but his legacy lives on in his son, actor Matthew Broderick. [UNH Electronic Newsletter, Issue 421, Date Sept 19, 2008]


James Broderick died of cancer at age 55. He was the father of actor Matthew Broderick.
