Sorrell Booke

Biography:Sorrell Booke (Born January 4, 1930 in Buffalo, New York - d. February 11, 1994 in Sherman Oaks, California) was an American actor best known for his role as the heavyset, corrupt politician "Jefferson Davis 'Boss' Hogg" in the television show The Dukes of Hazzard.

Fluent in five languages, Sorrell (rhymes with "moral") Booke attended Columbia and Yale Universities and served in the Korean War as a counterintelligence officer. Booke had parts in noteworthy 1960s films such as Black Like Me and A Fine Madness before transitioning to focus primarily on television parts in the 1970s and voice acting in the 1980s and 1990s.

Booke earned himself an Emmy nomination for his appearance in the TV series, Dr. Kildare in the episode entitled, "What's God to Julius?" He also had a recurring role in Norman Lear's groundbreaking sitcom All in the Family as Mr. Sanders, personnel manager at Archie Bunker's workplace, Pendergast Tool and Die.

Most notable to his career was being cast in The Dukes of Hazzard as the humorously-wicked antagonist to Bo and Luke Duke, J.D. 'Boss' Hogg. The series ran from 1979-1985, and spawned an animated series, The Dukes (1983), two reunion TV specials, and a feature film.

He also once conducted the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Booke continued to work professionally until he succumbed to cancer in 1994. He is interred in the Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery in Culver City, California.
