Victor Charles Buono (February 3, 1938 – January 1, 1982) was an American actor and comic most famous for playing the villain King Tut on the television series Batman. He was a busy actor from his late teens until his death at age 43, and with his large size and sonorous voice, he made a career of playing men much older than himself.
Buono liked to read and write, and one of his main hobbies was Shakespeare. "The more you study him," he said, "the greater he grows." He was also highly regarded as a gourmet chef.
In regard to relationships (and the implicit questioning of his sexuality), Buono is quoted as saying, "I've heard or read about actors being asked the immortal question, 'Why have you never married?' They answer with the immortal excuse, 'I just haven't found the right girl.' Because I'm on the hefty side, no one's asked me yet. If they do, that's the answer I'll give. After all, if it was good enough for Monty Clift or Sal Mineo..." Buono was unusual among homosexual performers of his era by openly living together with same-sex partners, although he was not flamboyant about his lifestyle and referred to himself as a "conscientious objector" in the "morality revolution" of the 1960s.
Despite his weight, Victor Buono was known to be a playboy according to the commentary on the DVD edition of Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte.
