Decided to become an actor at the age of seven years old after seeing the movie Spartacus (1960).
The actress who handcuffed him to that park bench in The Warriors (1979) was Mercedes Ruehl, also in her second film. One of Reuhl's friends, who was a Washington Post Reporter, wrote about seeing the film and being disappointed at her friend's harsh role.
Made an impressive Broadway debut playing Richard Gere's lover in "Bent" in 1979.
Gained a minor cult following after playing "Ajax" in The Warriors (1979).
He was given an honorary name "Standing 20" during the filming of Windwalker (1981) by the Cheyenne.
He has worked 4 times with actor Mario Van Peebles in the movies: The Cotton Club (1984), Blowback (2000), Guardian (2001) and Sharpshooter (2007) (TV).
Was originally cast as "Hicks" in Aliens (1986), but had to be replaced early into filming. He can be seen from the back as the marines walk along a corridor, but only because the in-camera miniature of the set had been junked, and too expensive to re-shoot.
Probably best known for the recurring TV role of "Richard," the compulsively philandering jet-set boyfriend of Kim Cattrall, in "Sex and the City" (1998).
