A struggling actor in New York City, Klugman was a roommate of another starving actor, Charles Bronson, before the two went onto bigger and better things. He starred in several classic films including 12 Angry Men (which he says is his favorite), Goodbye, Columbus, and Days of Wine and Roses. He also won an Emmy Award for his work on the television series The Defenders and appeared in four episodes of the acclaimed series The Twilight Zone (tied with Burgess Meredith for the most appearances by any actor on the series).

In the early 1990s, Klugman, a heavy smoker, lost a vocal cord to cancer, but he continued to act on stage and on television. He survived the cancer, though the lost vocal cord has left Klugman with a raspy, scratchy voice. During the 1990s his television credits included a guest starring role in Diagnosis Murder.
