    Any more details, like, for example, were they school friends?

    Another detail is things like how long they knew each other before they were famous, just detail like those given in the thread on musicians who knew each other before they were famous.

    They were friends and may have shared an apartment in the early days.
    I always liked what Brando said about Cox after he died: " Oh, I miss him so. He had the look of a bank clerk, the mind of a serial killer and the cock of a horse"

  9. Famous, Academy Award winning actor, Walter Huston, was quite unfamous when his yet-to-be-famous son was born in 1906: the brilliant, Academy Award winning director, John Huston.

    I forget to add how they met. they were both struggling actors in 1967. however, they did not meet at the theatre . micheal douglas was standing on the beach looking out at the long island sound, and danny devito came up to him and asked him, " do you get high."
