Will Wright was born on Mar 26, 1894 in USA. Will Wright's big-screen debut came with Pure Feud directed by Joseph Henabery in 1934, strarring Lem (uncredited). Will Wright is known for Fail Safe directed by Sidney Lumet, Dan O'Herlihy stars as Gen. Black and Walter Matthau as Dr. Groeteschele. The upcoming new movie Will Wright plays is Point limite which will be released on Feb 25, 1965.

One of those familiar character actors who seems to have been born old, Will Wright specialized in playing crusty old codgers, rich skinflints, crooked small-town politicians and the like. A former newspaper reporter in San Francisco, he switched careers and entered vaudeville, then took to the stage. He ventured from acting to producing, and staged shows on Broadway as well as other cities, eventually making his way to Hollywood. He appeared in over 100 films and did much TV work, including a recurring role on The Andy Griffith Show (1960). Although his hunched-over figure, craggy face and somewhat sour disposition made it seem like he started out his 20+-year career as an old man, he was actually only 68 when he died of cancer in Hollywood in 1962.
