A leading player on Broadway for over two decades, Victor Garber has appeared in comedies and musicals in New York to applause and Tony nominations, but his career in TV and films has been limited to mostly supporting parts.

A year later, Garber reprised the role in the film version of the musical but he soon settled into working on Broadway.

Fox (I) and Nathan Lane (I) in James Lapine's Life with Mikey (1993); Tom Hanks' friend who is rendered emotional by "The Dirty Dozen" in Nora Ephron's _Sleepless in Seattle (1993)_ and Goldie Hawn's ex-husband in _First Wives Club, The (1996)_ . Garber's highest profile turn came as the Titanic's designer Thomas Andrews, who calmly awaits its inevitable sinking, in James Cameron (I)'s blockbuster mega-hit Titanic (1997).
