Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This accomplished character actor is most famous for his role in the long-running "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979-85), in which he played Boss Hogg, the foolhardy Southern mayor who cut a porcine figure in his all-white suits. Few knew that Sorrell Booke started his acting career in Buffalo NY, where at age nine he performed on local radio programs, or that over the course of his life appeared in over 100 plays. He won critical acclaim for his role as the unreconstructed Ol' Cap'n Cotchipee on Broadway in "Purlie Victorious" (1961), a role he recreated for his film debut, "Gone Are the Days" (1963). His television credits include appearances on the series "Rich Man, Poor Man: Book II" (1976-77) and "Soap" as Mr. Lefkowitz. His film work includes "Fail Safe" (1964), "Slaughterhouse-Five" (1971) and "The Iceman Cometh" (1973). Toward the end of his life, he did voiceovers for animated films and TV programs and hosted the 1984 Cotton Bowl Parade on CBS.
