Paul Williams Humanitarian

Paul Williams Humanitarian (note: flash site) - "Known for timeless classics such as "We've Only Just Begun," "Rainy Days and Mondays," "Evergreen," "Just An Old Fashioned Love Song" and "Rainbow Connection," Paul Williams is responsible for what will remain part of our pop culture for many years to come." (From IMDb)

He also scored the soundtrack to The Muppet Movie ("Rainbow Connection"...) as well as The Muppet Christmas Carol. He also co-wrote "the Love Boat Theme"!
He played the orangutan Virgil in Battle for the Planet of the Apes. He starred (and composed the soundtrack!) in the Brian DePalma cult classic Phantom of the Paradise. And he was also on the cast for the show The Bold & the Beautiful.
Actually, I think it may be easier to tell you what he hasn't been up to. He is a nice fellow too. Humanitarian. ... and ME, I am worthless!

By the way: "Rainy Days and Mondays" is one of the greatests songs ever.
