Date of Birth : Jun 7th 1955
Dynamically entertaining heavyset US actor with piercing eyes and a superb talent for playing some truly unlikeable and downright nasty characters that dominate the films in which he appears! If you’re cast as the “hero” against William Forsythe’s “villain”, then you have your work cut out for you as Forsthye’s raw energy and menace on screen is second to none. Forsythe started out in a couple of minor film roles and guest appearance’s in high rating TV shows including “CHiPs” (1977), “Hill Street Blues” (1981) and “T.J. Hooker” (1982). He quickly moved into some high quality feature films including playing a small time hoodlum in Once Upon a Time in America (1984), an hilariously funny performance as a bumbling jail escapee alongside John Goodman in the knockout Raising Arizona (1987) and as a renegade soldier in Extreme Prejudice (1987).
