A talented actor with leading man appeal, Vincent Spano eschewed star-making vehicles in order to pursue more eclectic material with such filmmakers as John Sayles and Roger Vadim. Beginning his acting career while still in his teens, Spano took part in minor efforts like "Over the Edge" (1979) before becoming familiar to mainstream audiences in such films as "The Black Stallion Returns" (1983) and "Rumble Fish" (1983). He took the lead in Sayles' "Baby It's You" (1983), then followed with projects as diverse as the gritty crime drama "Alphabet City" (1984) and Vadim's remake of his own earlier Brigitte Bardot drama "And God Created Woman" (1988). A particular highlight came in the form of Sayles' explosive urban drama "City of Hope" (1991), followed by the powerful true tale of survival "Alive" (1993). Later, Spano's work became more erratic, comprised of occasional feature potboilers like "The Tie That Binds" (1995), made-for-TV thrillers such as "Deathlands" (Syfy, 2003) and a recurring role on the police procedural "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ). Never predictable, always watchable, Spano continued to deliver convincing performances in a wide array of material, ranging from ensemble dramas to action-adventures.
