Biography

American leading man Glenn Langan caught the eye of Hollywood after appearing opposite Luise Rainer in a 1942 Broadway revival of A Kiss for Cinderella. Signed by 20th Century-Fox, Langan was personally groomed for stardom by studio head Darryl F. Zanuck. Despite good roles in such Fox films as Margie (1946), Dragonwyck (1946), Forever Amber (1947) and The Snake Pit (1949), Langan never really became a public favorite. Free-lancing in minor films throughout the 1950s, Langan slipped into the realm of Pop Culture by virtue of his performance in the title role of the estimable The Amazing Colossal Man (1957). From 1949 onward, Glenn Langan was the husband of film actress Adele Jergens. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
