Description   [from Freebase]

E. G. Marshall (June 18, 1914 – August 24, 1998) was an American actor, best known for his television roles as the lawyer Lawrence Preston on The Defenders in the 1960s and as neurosurgeon David Craig on The Bold Ones: The New Doctors in the 1970s. Among his film roles he is perhaps best known as the unflappable "Juror #4" in Sidney Lumet's courtroom drama, 12 Angry Men (1957). Marshall was born Everett Eugene Grunz in Owatonna, Minnesota, the son of Hazel Irene (née Cobb; 1892–1975) and Charles G. Grunz (1882–1959). He attended both Carleton College and the University of Minnesota. During his life, he chose not to reveal what "E. G." stood for, telling most people it stood for "Everybody's Guess". Although most familiar for his later television and movie roles, E. G. Marshall also had a distinguished Broadway career, having appeared in original New York productions of The Skin of Our Teeth and The Iceman Cometh and having had lead roles in The Crucible and Waiting for Godot.
