About Stacy Keach

Stacy Keach, 67, is currently playing the part of Richard Nixon in a touring version of “Frost/Nixon,” the play-turned-movie (and now back to being a play) about the now-infamous 1977 interview. The Ahmanson Theatre, which is behind the production, apparently got word on Tuesday that Keach would not be at the show. An understudy was set to take his place.

Keach’s on-screen career dates back 1953, when he appeared on a TV show called “Cavalcade of America.” His first credited movie role was 1958’s Joy Ride.
