Mandel Bruce Patinkin

Mandel Bruce Patinkin (born November 30, 1952 in Chicago, Illinois), is an American actor and renowned tenor.

Patinkin attended Kenwood High School, University of Kansas and Juilliard School of Drama. His first real break was when he played Che in Evita on Broadway in 1979. He went on to win a Tony Award for that role.

After this initial musical theater success he moved to film, playing a number of parts in movies such as Yentl and Ragtime, before returning to Broadway in 1984 to star in Sunday in the Park with George, which saw him earn another Tony Award nomination.

He is undoubtedly best-known for playing Inigo Montoya in Rob Reiner's The Princess Bride.

Over the next decade he continued to appear in various movies such as Dick Tracy and Alien Nation, on Broadway in The Secret Garden and released two solo albums called Mandy Patinkin and Dress Casual.

In 1994, he burst onto the small screen playing the role of Dr. Jeffrey Geiger on CBS's Chicago Hope and promptly won an Emmy Award. However despite the award and the ratings success of the show Patinkin left the show part way through the second season.

Since Chicago Hope, Patinkin has taken parts in a number of films. However, he has mostly been performing as a singer, releasing three more albums. He returned to Broadway in 2000 in the New York Shakespeare Festival's The Wild Party, earning another Tony Award nomination. Recently he has also been seen in the Showtime comedy-drama Dead Like Me.

Starting in September 2005, he stars in the CBS crime drama Criminal Minds.

Personal life
Married Kathryn Grody in 1980; two sons, Isaac and Gideon.

He suffered from keratoconus, a degenerative eye disease, in the mid-1990s. This led to two corneal transplants, the right cornea in 1997 and the left in 1998.

He also was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer in 2004. He celebrated his first year of recovery by doing a 280 mile charity bike ride with his son, Isaac - the Arava Institute Hazon Israel Ride: Cycling for Peace, Partnership & Environmental Protection. He subsequently joined the boards of both the Arava Institute and Hazon.
