The renowned actor has graced the screen since TV's earliest days, though he's best known for playing Baron von Trapp in The Sound of Music. Plummer's memoir, In Spite of Myself, will be released next week.
Say "Christopher Plummer," and some people automatically think of The Sound of Music, in which he played the Baron von Trapp.
But that's just one of about 100 films Plummer has been in; recent highlights from his big-screen career include Syriana, The Insider, A Beautiful Mind, and Inside Man. He's also had long stage career, won two Tony Awards, and performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
