NEW YORK (AP) - Lincoln Center will honor Rob Reiner with its 41st annual Chaplin Award.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Tuesday that the director and actor will receive the award at a gala April 28. Film Society Board Chairman Ann Tenenbaum called the 66-year-old Reiner a "master multi-hyphenate" who has made "some the most enduring and entertaining films in recent history."
Son of the comedy legend Carl Reiner, the Bronx-born Reiner has directed films including "When Harry Met Sally ...," ''This Is Spinal Tap," ''The Princess Bride" and "Stand By Me." His acting work has ranged from "All in the Family" to, most recently, "The Wolf of Wall Street."
Previous Chaplin Award honorees include Billy Wilder, Alfred Hitchcock and Tom Hanks. Last year, it was given to Barbra Streisand.
