Born on December 13th 1929, Christopher Plummer grew up with a love of the arts.  Originally he trained to be a concert pianist, however, he found a knack for acting.  It was in 1958 that he got his film break in Stage Fright and that led to many roles, his most notable are Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music playing beside Disney Legend Julie Andrews, Archbishop Conteni-Verchese in the Thorn Birds, General Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.  For Disney he was also John Adam Gates, the grandfather in National Treasure but his place in The Price Club comes from his performance of Charles Muntz in Up.  The villain with a catchy phrase “Adventure is Out There.”
