Interesting Facts

2 He made guest appearances on both Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993) and Superman (1996).
3 Was cast as a NYPD officer alongside Rick Aiello in two Spike Lee films: Do the Right Thing (1989) and Jungle Fever (1991).
4 Recently scored on the TV show as District Attorney Manuel Devalos who hires suburban mom and Medium (2005) Patricia Arquette to help solve the city's murder cases with her potent psychic powers.
5 Began working as a professional actor in 1975 when he joined a mime school in Albuquerque, New Mexico working with Tom Leabhardt, a disciple of the famed Etienne Decroux, founder of L'Ecole de Mime de Paris. He later joined the troupe full time and continued his study of pantomime while helping to form the troupe into a professional company. The Performing Arts Collective continued to perform in parks and schools throughout the state until its members disbanded in 1979. His wife Linda was his first mime teacher.
6 Founded an acting company comprised of inmates at the New Mexico State Penitentiary, sometimes training two times a week for one year. The company eventually presented productions of Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" and "Endgame" for the inmate population and general public.
7 Played in four movies with Samuel L. Jackson, Do the Right Thing (1989), Jungle Fever (1991), White Sands (1992) and Jurassic Park (1993).
8 Is a favorite of director Alex Cox, who often casts him.


1 Don't let them see you sweat. Develop a strong and candid relationship with your representative(s) or maybe your loved one or coach, someone who allows you to rant, complain, moan, whine, voice resentments ("Don't they know who I am" category), flip out, maybe even rehearse, etc.
