Nathan Lane Young

Born Joseph Lane on February 3, 1956, in Jersey City, New Jersey, Nathan Lane began acting in middle school, and by the time he graduated from St. Peter’s Prep high school, he had decided on a career as an actor. Though he was offered a scholarship to study theater at St. Joseph’s College in Philadelphia, the stipend provided was not sufficient to live on, so Lane took a series of odd jobs, including bail interviewer, telemarketer and singing messenger, while trying to land acting jobs in New York City. As there was another Joe Lane in the Actors’ Equity organization, Lane took the first name of Nathan Detroit, a character he had played in a dinner theater production of Guys and Dolls.
After three years performing stand-up comedy in nightclubs with Patrick Stack—the duo was known as Stack and Lane—Lane obtained an agent and made appearances on The Merv Griffin Show. In 1982, Lane got a part on the sitcom One of the Boys, featuring Mickey Rooney, Meg Ryan, and Dana Carvey, but the show was canceled after only 13 episodes. He would make his first big splash on Broadway the following year opposite George C. Scott in a revival of Noel Coward’s play Present Laughter. The role marked the beginning of Lane’s tenure as a fixture on the New York stage.
