Jason Wingreen (October 9, 1920 - December 25, 2015) played the role of Harry Snowden, a friend of Archie's and popular bartender at Kelcy's Bar, who becomes business partners with Archie when he purchases the saloon and renames it "Archie Bunker's Place" in All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place. Wingreen was a revered actor whose career in film, TV and the stage spanned five decades.


Born in in Brooklyn, New York on October 9, 1920, Wingreen grew up in Howard Beach, Queens, attended John Adams High School, and graduated from Brooklyn College in 1941.[1] Wingreen lent his voice to Boba Fett in the original and 1997 theatrical versions of The Empire Strikes Back. His voice was replaced by the voice of Temuera Morrison (who portrayed Jango Fett, the father of the clone bounty hunter and the clone troopers in Star Wars Episode II:Attack Of The Clones) in the 2004 DVD version of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

Wingreen is best known for his role as Harry Snowden on the CBS television sitcom All in the Family and its continuation series, Archie Bunker's Place. He played the character from 1976 until 1983.

Prior to this, Wingreen was a regular during the 1960-61 season of The Untouchables, playing Police Captain Dorsett. He performed in "A Stop at Willoughby," "The Midnight Sun," and "The Bard," three episodes of the original Twilight Zone series. He also appeared on the original Star Trek series, making him one of the few actors involved with both Star Wars and Star Trek. Wingreen also had a recurring role as Judge Arthur Beaumont in the series Matlock, and has guest-starred in numerous other series, including Mission: Impossible, The Outer Limits, Bonanza, The Rockford Files, and The Fugitive.

In 1979, he was a part of the ensemble cast of the acclaimed TV mini-series Roots: The Next Generations. Wingreen's son, Ned, is a professor of molecular biology at Princeton University.
