Veteran character player from the stage, a prolific staple at MGM in the 1940s and 50s, mostly as pals to the male stars of the films in which he appeared, and later memorable as the absurdly earnest Army man who gives Peter Sellers a scare at the telephone booth in "Dr. Strangelove" (1963). Son of vaudevillian-turned-character-actor Ed Wynn ("The Diary of Anne Frank" 1959, "Mary Poppins" 1964, etc.) and father of Tracy Keenan Wynn (b. 1945), who wrote several films in the mid-1970s ("The Longest Yard" 1974, etc.).
