Gould's 1964 film debut wasn't released until the early '70s, retitled Quick, Let's Get Married. He fared better with The Night They Raided Minsky's and 1969's Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (which earned him a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination). It was MASH (1970) that made Gould a counterculture hero.
The Long Goodbye, California Split and Harry and Walter Go to New York were followed by less memorable films. Gould reemerged in the '90s as a character actor in Bugsy and American History X, and later in Ocean's Eleven (2001). "Friends" fans know him as the father of Monica and Ross Geller.
