Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A staple of American television and features since the early 1990s, Nick Searcy was a versatile supporting talent whose subtle but sincere work buoyed projects ranging from the feature hit "The Fugitive" (1993) and "From the Earth to the Moon" (HBO, 1998) to "Cast Away" (1998) and "Justified" (FX, 2010- ). Like all good character actors, Searcy disappeared into his roles, embodying everything from sheriffs and military men to good ole' boys and sitcom husbands. Comedy and drama flowed with equal ease in his hands, though the former was largely relegated to seldom-seen sitcoms like "Rodney" (ABC, 2004-06). He was one of the many aspects of the drama "Justified" (FX, 2010- ) that was singled out for praise by critics, which underscored his talent as one of the business's best utility players.
