Early life[edit] Plummer was born on December 13, 1929 in Toronto, Ontario, the only child of Isabella Mary (née Abbott), who was secretary to the Dean of Sciences at McGill University, and John Orme Plummer, who sold stocks and securities.[3] Through his mother, Plummer is a great-grandson of Canadian prime minister and former McGill law dean Sir John Abbott,[4] and a great-great-grandson of Anglican clergyman and McGill president John Bethune.[5] His father's uncle was patent lawyer and agent F. B. Fetherstonhaugh.[3] Plummer's parents were divorced shortly after his birth, and he was brought up at the Abbott family home in Senneville, Quebec, outside Montreal. He is bilingual, speaking English and French fluently.[6][7] Plummer is a second cousin of British actor Nigel Bruce, known as Doctor Watson to Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes, and of Bruce's brother, Sir Michael Bruce, baronet and journalist.[5] Plummer began studying to be a concert pianist, but he developed a love for the theatre at an early age. He began acting while he was living on Pine Avenue, Montreal, and attending the High School of Montreal.[8][9] He attended McGill, at which time he also took up acting, after watching Laurence Olivier's film Henry V (1944).[10] In 1946, his performance as Mr. Darcy in the production of Pride and Prejudice at Montreal

Gazette. Whittaker, who was also amateur stage director of the Montreal

Repertory Theatre, cast Plummer, aged 18, as Oedipus

in Jean Cocteau's La Machine infernale.[11][12][13] Career[edit] Theatre[edit] Broadway[edit]

Plummer made his Broadway debut in January 1953 in The Starcross Story, a show that closed on opening night. His next Broadway appearance, Home is the Hero, lasted 30 performances from September to October 1954. He appeared in support of Broadway legend Katharine Cornell and film legend Tyrone Power
Tyrone Power
in The Dark is Light Enough, which lasted 69 performances from February to April 1955. The play toured several cities, with Plummer serving as Power's understudy.[5] Later that same year, he appeared in his first Broadway hit, opposite Julie Harris (who won a Tony Award) in Jean Anouilh's The Lark. After appearing in Night of the Auk, which was not a success, Plummer appeared in Elia Kazan's successful Broadway production of Archibald MacLeish's Pulitzer Prize-winning play J.B.; Plummer was nominated for his first Tony as Best Actor in Play. (J.B. also won Tonys as Best Play and for Kazan's direction.) Plummer appeared less frequently on Broadway in the 1960s as he moved from New York to London. He appeared in the title role in a 1963 production of Bertolt Brecht's The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, which did not succeed, but he had a great success in Peter Shaffer's The Royal Hunt of the Sun, playing conquistador Francisco Pizarro
Francisco Pizarro
to David Carradine's Tony Award-nominated Atahuallpa. (In the 1969 film adaptation, Plummer would take the title role.) From May to June 1973, he appeared on Broadway as the title character in Cyrano, a musical adaptation of Edmond Rostand's 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac
Cyrano de Bergerac
by Anthony Burgess and Michael J. Lewis. For that performance, Plummer won the Tony Award
Tony Award
for Best Actor in a Musical and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Performance. Later that year, he played Anton Chekhov
Anton Chekhov
in Neil Simon's adaptation of several Chekhov short stories, The Good Doctor.[14] In the 1980s, he appeared on Broadway in two Shakespearean tragedies, Othello, playing Iago to James Earl Jones' Moor, and the title role in Macbeth
Macbeth
with Glenda Jackson

playing his lady. His Iago brought him another Tony nomination. He appeared with Jason Robards

In 1962, he played the title roles in both Cyrano de Bergerac and Macbeth, returning in 1967 to play Mark Antony in Antony and Cleopatra.[16] In 2002, he appeared in a lauded production of King Lear, directed by Jonathan Miller.[17] The production successfully transferred to New York City's Lincoln Center in 2004.[18] He returned to the stage at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival

at the Public/Newman Theatre in New York City in 1978. Film[edit] Early films[edit] Plummer's film career began in 1958 when Sidney Lumet
Sidney Lumet
cast him as a young writer in Stage Struck. That same year, he also appeared in Nicholas Ray's film of Budd Schulberg's Wind Across the Everglades, playing the lead. He did not appear on screen again for six years, until he played the Emperor Commodus in Anthony Mann's epic The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964). His next film, the Oscar-winning The Sound of Music, made cinematic history, becoming the all-time top-grossing film, eclipsing Gone with the Wind.[25] He was in Inside Daisy Clover
Inside Daisy Clover
(1965), then played World War Two agent Eddie Chapman
Eddie Chapman
in Triple Cross (1966) and had a support role as Field Marshal Erwin Rommel
Erwin Rommel
in The Night of the Generals
The Night of the Generals
(1967). Plummer was cast to replace Rex Harrison
Rex Harrison
for the film adaptation of Doctor Dolittle. This decision was later reversed, but Plummer was nonetheless paid $87,500 for signing the contract. At the same time, Plummer was performing in the stage play The Royal Hunt of the Sun and his whole Dolittle participation was so brief that Plummer never missed a performance.[26] The Sound of Music[edit] Main article: The Sound of Music (film)

Plummer and Julie Andrews

Owing to the box office success and continued popularity of The Sound of Music (1965), Plummer remains widely known for his portrayal of Captain Von Trapp, a role he later described as "so awful and sentimental and gooey".[27] He found all aspects of making the film, except working with Andrews, unpleasant and avoids using its name, instead calling it "that movie", "S&M", or "The Sound of Mucus".[28] He declined to attend the 40th Anniversary cast reunion, but did provide commentary on the 2005 DVD release. Plummer relented in 2010 for the 45th anniversary, and appeared with the full cast on The Oprah Winfrey Show
The Oprah Winfrey Show
on October 28, 2010. In this show, it was also revealed that the cast is very close to each other even after all this time. In 2009, Plummer said of the film and his role that he was "...a bit bored with the character. Although we worked hard enough to make him interesting, it was a bit like flogging a dead horse. And the subject matter is not mine. I mean, it can't appeal to every person in the world."[2] However, Plummer admits the film itself was well made and, despite his reservations, is proud to be associated with a film with such mass appeal. "The world has seen [The Sound of Music] so many times. And there's a whole new generation every year—poor kids—that have to sit through it [laughs]. But it was a very well-made movie, and it's a family movie and we haven't seen a family movie, I don't think, on that scale for ages. I don't mind that. It just happened to be not my particular cup of tea."[29] His singing voice was mostly dubbed by Bill Lee.[30] Established career[edit]

in an interview that aired on March 7, 2010,[33] Plummer added, tongue-in-cheek, "Well, I said it's about time! I mean, I'm 80 years old, for God's sake. Have mercy." On Oscar night, March 7, 2010, however, he lost to Christoph Waltz.[34] Plummer received his second nomination for the Academy Award

Where have you been all my life?".[35] All the Money in the World[edit] Main article: All the Money in the World In November 2017, Plummer, who was director Ridley Scott's original choice to play J. Paul Getty,[36], was cast to replace Kevin Spacey

and Michelle Williams were part of the necessary filming.[37] The decision was made not long before the scheduled release date of December 22. TriStar Pictures
