Rex Everhart was an American film and musical theatre actor. Everhart appeared in such films as 1978's Superman. He was also known for his role as "Enos" in 1980's classic horror film, Friday the 13th and its sequel. He provided the voice of Belle's father, Maurice, in the 1991 musical animated Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. Everhart performed in numerous roles on Broadway including 1776, Chicago, Woman of the Year and the revival of Anything Goes. He was nominated for a 1978 Tony Award as Best Actor for Working. In 1969, he was the understudy to Howard Da Silva in the role of Benjamin Franklin in the musical 1776. When Da Silva suffered a heart attack just prior to the show's opening, Everhart took over the role until Da Silva was well enough to return to the show. Because he appeared in the opening night cast, he was contractually eligible to perform the role on the original Broadway cast recording. Ironically, when 1776 was revived on Broadway in 1997, Everhart again served as the understudy for the role of Benjamin Franklin.
