Going slightly off topic, I'm glad that the obit you linked mentions that he started onstage, but I gotta say that he did not play a hippie in The Happening. :) Some other characters in the film are hippies, but his character is not one. It is strongly implied that his character is gay, albeit closeted. Given the rumors that seem to have hurt his career, it is perhaps surprising that the did the film. (It is a dreadful but kind of fascinating movie from when Hollywood was trying to be very "with it" and generally failing dismally.)

He returned to the stage for a 1972 stock tour of Company.

Unmentioned is that he won a Theatre World award for The Zoo Story, even though he left it quickly when he was cast in Exodus.
