Michael Rooker caught the
acting bug while attending college, and began appearing in local
stage productions. On first breaking into film, his intensity and
“don’t-mess-with-me” good looks were highlighted
to chilling effect as the title character in Henry: Portrait of
a Serial Killer (1986), filmed in 1986 but, due to its controversial
nature, not released until 1990. Since that widely noticed and highly
praised performance, much of his career has been spent playing brutes,
villains and psychopaths. His occasional turns as a “good
guy”, however, are always well-acted and a welcome change
for a talented actor too often typecast.
