Bio

Ned Bellamy is an American actor who has had memorable guest roles in numerous television series including Seinfeld, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Treme, Justified and Under the Dome.

He also played the role of one of James's coven's victims, Waylon Forge, a character created specifically for the Twilight film who is not present in the novel.

Ned was born in Dayton, Ohio to Bill and Nelle Bellamy. He is the youngest of three children. After spending his childhood in Joplin, Missouri, the family moved to La Jolla, California.

Mark, his brother, is the U.S. Ambassador to Kenya. Anne, his sister, is vice-president of African Travel in Los Angeles.

After graduating from UCLA, Ned and classsmate, Tim Robbins, founded the Los Angeles based theatre company, "The Actors Gang". Ned has appeared in numerous film and television productions and continues to reside in Los Angeles.

Seinfeld cultists will have little or no difficulty remembering Bellamy; he played Eddie, the knife-obsessed, fatigue-wearing employee of the J. Peterman company, whom Elaine tries to dismiss with a promotion, in the 1996 episode "The Fatigues."

That turn, with its aggressive, menacing air, was fairly typical of the roles in which Bellamy often found himself (despite the fact that he could bring those qualities to bear on comic or earnest material).

A native of Dayton, Ohio, he grew up in Joplin, Missouri, and entered show business in the very late '70s, initially on television programs including The Waltons, M*A*S*H, and The Dukes of Hazzard.

As time rolled on, however, Bellamy moved more squarely into filmed work, specializing in action, horror, or thriller fare. Big-screen projects that featured the actor included House IV: Home Deadly Home (1991), Universal Soldier (1992), and Carnosaur (1993).

After the Seinfeld appearance, Bellamy unveiled more of a comic emphasis in his role choices, evidenced by his work in such projects as Being John Malkovich (1999), The Whole Ten Yards (2004), and Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny (2006).

In 2008, Bellamy turned up as Waylon Forge in the romantically charged vampire opus Twilight (2008), which marked the actor's second collaboration with director Catherine Hardwicke after an appearance in her Lords of Dogtown (2005).

In 2012 he had a minor role in the Quentin Tarantino film Django Unchained and in 2013 he had a recurring role as Rev. Lester Coggins in the science fiction television horror series Under the Dome, based on the novel by Stephen King.
