California-native Perry Lang started his career as an actor in the 1970s, appearing in after-school specials, television mini-series and feature films like "Zuma Beach," "The Death of Ocean View Park," and 1983's "Spring Break." Lang enjoyed a successful and prolific career as a character actor, playing roles in many of the most popular shows of the 1970s and 1980s. Although he was enjoying a busy career as an actor, he decided to take on the role of director, and introduced his first feature film "Little Vegas" in 1990. The movie was a drama starring Anthony John Denison and Catherine O'Hara, and followed a group of misfits with big dreams and troubled pasts as they tried to find success in that shining city in the desert. Critical reception for "Little Vegas" was not overwhelmingly positive, but Lang went on to pursue work as a director, helming 1994's "Men of War" and directing episodes of the hit television series "NYPD Blue," "Arli$$," and "Nash Bridges." Lang continued to act alongside his work as a director, during the '90s and 2000s, and notably acted on an episode of the campy teen-drama "Popular," a show for which he also acted as director for three episodes. Lang is married to Sage Parker-Lang, a French-born former actress who was featured in films like "Robocop," "In Broad Daylight," and "Songwriter."
