Michael George Murphy (born May 5, 1938) is an American film and television actor.



Murphy played Woody Allen's duplicitous friend Yale in the film Manhattan. He has worked frequently with director Robert Altman, and gave his best-known performances for Altman as sleazy political operative John Triplette in Nashville and as presidential candidate Jack Tanner in the acclaimed 1988 HBO miniseries Tanner '88, a role he reprised in 2004's Sundance Channel miniseries Tanner on Tanner. He played an unnamed mayor of Gotham City in Batman Returns and sleazy journalist Pete Curtis in Peter Weir's The Year of Living Dangerously. In 2006, he played Warren Worthington II, the father of Angel, in X-Men: The Last Stand.

He can be seen on the Canadian series This is Wonderland, for which he won Gemini Awards in 2004 and 2005. That same year, he appeared in the film Childstar with Don McKellar. His TV credits also include Law & Order and its spin-off, Criminal Intent.

He was seen in Greta. He starred alongside Hilary Duff, Ellen Burstyn and Evan Ross, playing Duff's grandfather.
