Steve FrankenAKA Stephen Robert Franken

Born: 27-May-1932
Birthplace: Brooklyn, NY
Died: 24-Aug-2012
Location of death: Los Angeles, CA
Cause of death: Cancer - unspecified

Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Chatsworth Osborne, Jr. on Dobie Gillis

Claimed correctly that his role in Dobie Gillis as Chatsworth, a prissy, rich spoiled brat (with homosexual overtones), typecast him and ruined his career. A shame, because Franken was a good actor. In 1963 he joined the cast of The Lieutenant, but was replaced by Joe Penny after five episodes.
