Bio

Stacy Keach is a an American actor and narrator best known for his dramatic roles; however, he has done narration work in educational programming as well as some comedy (particularly his role in the sitcom Titus as Ken, the hard-drinking, chain-smoking, womanizing father of comedian Christopher Titus) and musical roles.

Keach was born in Savannah, Georgia on 2 June, 1941. In addition to his motion picture and television accomplishments, Stacy is one of America's most acknowledged Shakespearean actors, also celebrated in England where the Bard is in the blood.

A New York Time's review dubbed him "The Finest American classical actor since John Barrymore." He's received a Best Actor Golden Globe, been nominated for Emmy and Tony awards, won three Obie's, three Vernon Rice awards, the Helen Hayes Award, and the Prestigious Millineum Recognition Award for his outstanding contribution to the classical theatre.

He started acting in theatre at an early age. He came to prominence on stage in the 1960's, and entered films in 1968, landing a solid supporting role in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter.

He appeared in many counterculture-driven films of the early 1970's, including End of the Road, Brewster McCloud, Doc and John Huston's Fat City, among them.

He contributed a funny cameo to Huston's The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean. Keach also notably portrayed an LA cop in The New Centurions. Another of his acclaimed film characterizations was the title role in John Osborne's Luther.

He was chilling as an easy-going homicidal sheriff in The Killer Inside Me, an adaptation of Jim Thompson's novel that went virtually unnoticed until its later release on video.

He became a youth audience icon with his comedic portrayal in both Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke and Nice Dreams. Other top portrayals occurred in The Traveling Executioner, That Championship Season, The Ninth Configuration, Escape From LA, and American History X.
