Birth Place: East Meadow, New York, USA Profession: Cast ... actor waiter


A compelling actor known for his strong supporting performances in film, William Fichtner started out as a soap heartthrob on CBS' "As the World Turns" in 1987. He played a troubled man who had years before committed a rape that resulted in a child, yet despite this violent background and repugnant past, his Josh Snyder/Rod Landry emerged as a fan favorite and his handling of the role led viewers to consider Josh/Rod as a lost soul and a sympathetic character. His unconventional looks-strong boned face and sad haunted eyes-contributed to his attractive intensity. Later on television, he showed a lighter side with a 1994-1995 recurring role in the ABC sitcom "Grace Under Fire," playing Ryan Sparks, the dry-humored petrochemist love interest of Brett Butler's Grace.
