About this actor

Paul Hamilton Williams, Jr. (born September 19, 1940) is an American musician, composer, songwriter, and actor. Williams is responsible for a number of enduring pop hits from the 1970s, including several hits for Three Dog Night (such as "An Old Fashioned Love Song", "The Family of Man", and "Out in the Country"), Helen Reddy ("You and Me Against the World"), and The Carpenters, most notably "Rainy Days and Mondays," "I Won't Last a Day Without You," and "We've Only Just Begun", which has since become a cover-band standard and de rigueur for weddings throughout North America. (This last was originally a song for a Crocker National Bank television commercial featuring newlyweds.) An early collaboration with Roger Nichols, "Someday Man", was covered by The Monkees (a group for which he auditioned but was not cast) on a 1969 single, and was the first Monkees' release not published by Screen Gems. Bobby Sherman also sang "Cried Like a Baby". Anne Murray sang "Talk It Over in the Morning"....
