To begin with, Kline was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1966, Kline started his studies at Indiana University in Bloomington and in 1970 he graduated majoring in acting. He received a scholarship to study at the drama department of the Juilliard School in New York, and after graduating in 1972, he started the City Center Acting Company with a number of fellow students.

Among his greatest theatre roles are the characters created in the plays “Three Sisters” by Anton Chekhov, “The Threepenny Opera”, and “On The Twentieth Century” by Hal Prince, for which he received the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards. Also for “The Pirates Of Penzance” in 1081, he was rewarded with Best Actor in a Musical. In the 1980s, Kline, among other theatres, also played at the famous New York Public Theatre. He landed the male lead roles including in Hamlet, Richard III and Henry V which respectively brought him the Shakespeare Prize in the category Classical Theatre and two Obie Awards. For his feature film debut landed in “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) directed by Alan J. Pakula, he was nominated as Best Young Actor for a Golden Globe Award. In the later 1980s and 1990s, Kline successfully starred in several films directed by Lawrence Kasdan, including “The Big Chill”, “Silverado”, “I Love You to Death”, “Grand Canyon” and “French Kiss”. In 1988, he starred alongside John Cleese, Michael Palin and Jamie Lee Curtis in the British cult comedy “A Fish Called Wanda”, and for playing the pseudo-intellectual American artist Otto, Kline received an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor; with this film he consolidated his image as a comedian. His net worth was growing steadily.

However, his greatest passion was the theatre, which meant that he refused several prestigious role offers. He declined the role of Matt Hooper in “Jaws”, which was eventually played by Richard Dreyfuss, and the lead role in “Batman” that was acquired by Michael Keaton. On the 5th December, 2004, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2008, he won the Screen Actor Guild Award for his role landed in the film “As You Like It” directed by Kenneth Branagh, based on Shakespeare’s play of the same name. Currently, he is working on the set of an upcoming romantic fantasy musical film “Beauty and the Beast” (2017) directed by Bill Condon.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor, Kevin Kline has been married to the actress Phoebe Cates since 1989, with whom he has two children.
