Biographical information


In 1970, he originated the role of David in the original Broadway cast of George Furth and Stephen Sondheim's Company.

Coe was also an original member of the Not Ready For Prime Time Players, the original cast of Saturday Night Live, but he was only credited as a cast member for the first three shows, often as a pitchman in commercial parodies.

In 1979, he appeared as the head of Dustin Hoffman's advertising firm in the Academy Award-winning Kramer vs. Kramer. He himself was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1968 comedy short film The Dove, a parody of Ingmar Bergman's films, which he co-directed and starred in. Coe is also known for a guest-starring role in the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "First Contact", where he played Chancellor Durkin, the leader of an alien planet with whom the Federation is attempting to establish relations. He also portrayed Ben Cheviot, the eventual head of Network 23, in the TV series Max Headroom.

His various television appearances include Murder, She Wrote, Bones, Judging Amy, The King of Queens, Nip/Tuck, Grey's Anatomy, Columbo, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Gilmore Girls, and in two episodes of The West Wing as Senator Howard Stackhouse. He voiced the character of Woodhouse, the much-put-upon butler, in the FX animated series Archer, and the Autobot Wheeljack in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Coe also provided voice acting for the 2011 video games The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
