Artificial Intelligence" (2001), "Radio" (2003), "In the Valley of Elah" (2007) and "W." (2008). He appeared more frequently on television, where, in addition to guest spots on a lengthy string of shows, he recurred as a murderer married to a law clerk on "Judging Amy" (CBS, 1999-2005), the Italian-American family dramedy "That's Life" (CBS, 2000-02), a detective on "Birds of Prey" (The WB, 2002-03), and most memorably as Harry Manning on the Western "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06) and Officer Bobby Stark on the crime drama "Life" (NBC, 2007-09). His profile enjoyed a large boost when he landed the role of Stan Larsen, the father of the murder victim at the center of "The Killing" (AMC, 2011- ), the critically acclaimed American adaptation of the Danish murder mystery series. Although he may not have become a household name, Brent Sexton built a lengthy, impressive career as a well-respected journeyman character actor.
