A dependable character actor for over three decades, Emmy winner Powers Boothe lent grit to powerful men on both sides of the moral fence in a variety of diverse projects like "Red Dawn" (1984), "Nixon" (1995), "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06), "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "The Avengers" (2012). Boothe made an indelible impression on audiences with his first major screen role as the deranged Reverend Jim Jones in "Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones" (CBS, 1980) before making the leap to features with Walter Hill's "Southern Comfort" (1981). He soon became a favorite for directors like Hill and Oliver Stone, who cast Boothe as flinty bad guys in "Extreme Prejudice" (1987), "U Turn" (1990) and "Nixon" (1995). "Deadwood" brought him back to prominence with his complex turn as a brutal but emotionally wounded brothel owner, which in turn led to high-profile parts on "24" and significant smaller roles in "Sin City" (2005) and "The Avengers" (2012). Boothe's tough exterior and talent for intimate drama made him one of the most in-demand character actors in Hollywood.
