Jack Warden naît le 18 septembre 1920. Il prend le nom Jack Warden de son père. D'abord boxeur professionnel, il s'engage comme parachutiste dans la marine américaine pendant la Seconde guerre mondiale. À partir de la fin des années 1940, il est acteur de théâtre. Après une participation à Tant qu'il y aura des hommes, son premier rôle marquant au cinéma est celui du juré numéro sept, dans Douze hommes en colère. Habitué des seconds rôles, il est un des acteurs fétiches de Sidney Lumet, et outre Douze hommes en colère, il apparaît aussi dans Le Verdict, L'Avocat du diable. Il participera aussi à de nombreux feuilletons tels La Quatrième Dimension et Les Incorruptibles. Il se maria à l'actrice française Vanda Dupre en 1958, et il eut d'elle un fils, Christopher, aujourd'hui parent de deux enfants. Ils se séparèrent mais ne divorcèrent jamais.

En 2000, il tourne son dernier film. Affaibli par des problèmes cardiaques et une maladie rénale, il s'éteint dans un hôpital de New York le 19 juillet 2006 à l'âge de 85 ans.

A down-on-his-luck Democratic Senator, Jay Bulworth is losing his bid for re-election to a fiery young populist. Bulworth's socialist views, formed in the 1960s and 1970s, have lost favor with voters, so he has conceded to more conservative politics and to accepting donations from big corporations. In addition, though he and his wife have been having affairs with each other's knowledge for years, they must still present a happy façade in the interest of maintaining a good public image.

Edison (Carrot Top) is a poor, failed inventor and surf bum, but soon runs into and befriends wealthy business magnate Armand McMillan (Jack Warden). When Armand passes away shortly thereafter, he leaves Edison the majority of shares in his large invention corporation, and leaves his jealous nephew, his only living relative, Bradford (Larry Miller) only a surfboard. Bradford attempts to derail Edison's success by stealing his formula for glow in the dark, which had not previously existed in the reality of this movie, and sharing it with a consumer who covers himself in it and alleges that Edison's prize invention—a portable TV/TV dinner combo—leaks radiation. When Edison reveals to all that radiation causes sickness and death—but not a literal glowing—and that he had invented the formula for glow in the dark, the company is saved and Edison appoints beau Natalie Stockwell (Courtney Thorne-Smith) to run the company.

Kenneth Zevo (Donald O'Connor), the owner of the Zevo Toy factory in Moscow, Idaho, is dying. He tells his assistant Owen Owens (Arthur Malet) of his desire for the factory to be given to his brother, Lt. Gen. Leland Zevo (Michael Gambon) instead of his son Leslie Zevo (Robin Williams). Even Leland Zevo is unsure of this, pointing out how Leslie has been apprenticed at the toy factory most of his life. Kenneth agrees Leslie loves toys and his work, but his childlike demeanor would not help him to be a successful business leader. Kenneth had even gone to lengths to hire Gwen Tyler (Robin Wright) as a factory worker, believing Leslie would become attracted to her and she would help him to mature.
