Profile: Buck Henry

Suggestion by blog commenter.


  1. I just read your Alice Cooper profile, it was okay but... I'm a huge Alice Cooper fan and I think you'll find that whilst he is a Christian now he was actually BORN Jewish. His family converted to Mormonism/LDS from Judaism. Hence Alice Cooper is Jewish and therefore should have much higher scores. I'm 100% certain he is Jewish. You want proof? Okay: DID YOU KNOW THAT THESE MUSICIANS ARE JEWISH?‎

    That's all I can find at the moment. That should be enough evidence to support the claim that whilst Alice may have converted to Christiany. He is Jewish and was born Jewish! I'm 110% accurate and correct. I'm sorry but your
    so called claims and facts are inaccurate and unsubstantial. Sorry just pointing out the facts. Cool website though. Beautifully written and expressed though but not factual. Cool website. Looking forward to your response and (hopefully) corrections on this error. Thank-you. :)

  2. Sigh.

    Proof? Random blog posts are not proof. They are regurgitation of baseless rumors.

    Alice Cooper's father was a Christian minister. He is about a Jewish as a slice of ham.

  3. Hey I'm the guy who requested Buck Henry. Thanks for profiling him (But can't believe you've never heard of him before. He's a genius!!!) Anyway just curious that you gave him Borderline Jew. May I ask why? Was his Mother Ruth Taylor the silent actress Jewish or his Father Jewish? I know it may seem like I know a lot about Buck but in reality I don't. Good profile of him though. So... Was his Mother Jewish or his Father Jewish? (Why the Borderline?) Thanks. :)

  4. Jewish father, goyishe mother, nothing on record about him self-identifying.

  5. Buck Henry — who had seen Hoffman in Eh? and had been duly impressed—embraced the idea of casting him. “You know my theory about California genetics?” he asks wryly. “Jews from New York came to the Land of Plenty, and within one generation the Malibu sand had gotten into their genes and turned them into tall, Nordic powerhouses. Walking surfboards. We were thinking about how these Nordic people have Dustin as a son, and it’s got to be a genetic throwback to some previous generation.”
