Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Handsome, award-winning Shakespearean-trained actor who will probably forever be remembered as Baron Von Trapp from The Sound of Music (1965), a film he reportedly referred to as "The Sound of Mucus." A veteran of the Montreal stage, Plummer is adept at both comedy and drama, and is particularly effective in sinister roles, such as the Israeli diplomat in Eyewitness (1981), and the head of covert intelligence in Dreamscape (1984). Plummer made his film debut in Wind Across the Everglades (1958), and was memorable in Stage Struck (also 1958), The Fall of the Roman Empire (1964), Inside Daisy Clover (1965), Oedipus the King (1968), Royal Hunt of the Sun (1969), The Man Who Would Be King (1975, as Rudyard Kipling), The Return of the Pink Panther, Conduct Unbecoming (both also 1975), The Silent Partner (1978), Murder by Decree (1979, as Sherlock Holmes), and Somewhere in Time (1980).

The 1980s saw him playing heavies and appearing in many lackluster films, including a few that went straight to video. But the decade also saw him tackling more lighthearted parts, displaying a hitherto unsuspected comedic facility. His films in this period include Ordeal by Innocence (1984), The Boy in Blue (1985), An American Tail (1986, voice only), The Boss' Wife (also 1986), Dragnet, I Love N.Y., Souvenir (all 1987), Stage Fright (1988), Mind Field (1990), Where the Heart Is (also 1990, all but unrecognizable playing a filthy bum), The Dispossessed, Firehead, Red-Blooded American Girl (all also 1990), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991, as a Shakespeare-quoting Klingon opposite William Shatner, who had understudied for Plummer on stage in Canada), Malcolm X (1992, in a cameo as a prison priest), Liar's Edge (1993), Wolf (1994), and Dolores Claiborne (1995). Plummer continues to divide his time among film, stage, and TV work. (He won a 1974 Tony Award for the Broadway musical "Cyrano," and a 1977 Emmy Award for the TV miniseries "The Moneychangers.") His daughter (by former wife Tammy Grimes) is actress Amanda Plummer Daniel, The Fisher King
