TriviaCame to notice in the Canadian sci-fi horror classic Scanners (1981) in which he played the mind-controlling, head-blowing megalomaniac Daryl Revok, which led to a dynamic, infamous career of out-and-out baddies or edgy anti-heroes. His brother is a high school shop teacher in his hometown of Toronto, Canada. Said in an interview he is mostly recognized by the public from his voice over work in the Splinter Cell (2002) (VG) series. Moved to Los Angeles, California, USA in 1982. At the age of fifteen he wrote a play called "The Shelter" which won first prize in a Canada-wide university contest. He used the prize money to mount his own production of said play. A talented arm wrestler in his youth, he ironically often loses an arm and / or other limb in his films: Total Recall (1990), Starship Troopers (1997), The Machinist (2004) and Guy X (2005). If he hadn't been too bulky he also would have played Murphy in RoboCop (1987), who loses both his arms. Huge fan of Professional Wrestling. His father, Robert, was a streetlight maintenance man, his mother, Patricia, a housewife. Lives in Los Angeles, California.
