Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This slim, blond journeyman character actor has been delivering good supporting performances in a staggering number of films since 1980, appearing in modern-day classics and other features of dubious distinction. The New Jersey native began acting at a local experimental theater as a child, then later studied with Uta Hagen and Lee Strasberg. His early stage work included "Days in a Can", "Early Dark" and "The Happy Hunter".
