Bio

Clancy Brown is an American actor best known for his role as The Kurgan in the original Highlander movie and as Mr. Krabs in SpongeBob SquarePants.

Roles such as Jean in August Strindberg's Miss Julie, Aaron in Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus and Geisler in Glen DeCoasta's A Constant Wish brought him to the attention of critics and audiences alike.

His film debut as Viking in Bad Boys, starring then little known actor Sean Penn, brought him to the attention of Hollywood.

It's hard to identify the roles for which Brown is best known, as his career has been both distinguished and quirky. Legions of Highlander fans know him as the prototype immortal villain Kurgan in the initial film that grew into a franchise.

Then there is the ferocious Captain Hadley in the multiple Oscar nominated The Shawshank Redemption. And on television he found fans with his portrayal of the 1934 preacher, Brother Justin Crowe, on HBO's Emmy Award-winning Carnivale.

Brown's films have crossed the genres from thrillers (Pathfinder, Blue Steel, Pet Sematary 2) to true-life drama (Desperate Rescue, Love, Lies and Murder, The Man Who Broke 1000 Chains); from family films (The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, Flubber) to social dramas (Normal, The Laramie Project); from action dramas (The Guardian, Starship Troopers, Extreme Prejudice, Shoot to Kill) to animation (Spongebob Squarepants, The Justice League, Super Robot Monkey).

And some of his work defies conventional classification (The Bride, Cast a Deadly Spell and cult favorite The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai).

Born in the rural southwestern Ohio town of Urbana, where his family still lives and operates the local newspaper, Brown attended Northwestern University on a track scholarship and remains an active alumnus.

He was married to television news producer Jeanne Johnson in 1993 and is the proud father of a daughter and son.
