  • Canadian-born, Yale-trained Peter Donat made his mark on the theatrical world with his rich portrayals of such larger-than-life characters as Cyrano de Bergerac. Donat brought some of this grandiosity into his film work, which includes appearances in films as diverse as The Godfather II (1974), The China Syndrome (1979), War of the Roses (1987), Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988), and The Babe (1992). His TV-series roles include Arthur Raymond in Rich Man, Poor Man -- Book 2 (1977) and Elmo Tyson in Flamingo Road (1980). Peter Donat was making occasional appearances on the syndicated TV sci-fier Time Trax (1993), gesticulating his way through the role of Dr. Mordecai (Mo) Sahmbi, the ee-vil scientist who used the time-traveling TRAX machine for his own nefarious purposes.
