Bio

Vincent D'Onofrio is an American actor and producer best known for his starring role as Det. Robert Goren in the police procedural television series Law & Order: Criminal Intent, from 2001-2011.

With a haunting portrayal of an unstable Vietnam War recruit in Stanley Kubrick's gritty Full Metal Jacket in 1987, D'Onofrio gained attention for his intense and compelling talent on the screen.

His other early film appearances include Mystic Pizza and Adventures in Babysitting. In 2005, D'Onofrio directed, produced and starred in a short film, Five Minutes, Mr. Welles.

He also executive-produced and portrayed 1960s counterculture icon Abbie Hoffman in the film Steal This Movie, opposite Janeane Garofalo, and starred opposite Jennifer Lopez and Vince Vaughn in the science-fiction noir film The Cell.

D'Onofrio has also starred in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys as an Irish priest, opposite Jodie Foster; The Salton Sea, as a methamphetamine dealer opposite Val Kilmer; Impostor, with Gary Sinise; Chelsea Walls, directed by Ethan Hawke; and Happy Accidents, co-starring Marisa Tomei.

D'Onofrio's other film credits include Robert Altman's The Player, Joel Schumacher's Dying Young, Tim Burton's Ed Wood (in which he played a young Orson Welles), Nancy Savoca's Household Saints, Kathryn Bigalow's Strange Days (opposite Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett), Harold Ramis' Stuart Saves His Family, Barry Sonnenfeld's Men in Black (as an intergalactic villain opposite Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones), The Velocity of Gary opposite Salma Hayek, The Thirteenth Floor opposite Craig Bierko, The Whole Wide World (which he produced and starred in opposite Renee Zellweger), and Oliver Stone's JFK.

D'Onofrio received an Emmy Award nomination in 1998 for his riveting guest appearance in the Homicide: Life on the Street episode, The Subway.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, D'Onofrio grew up in Hawaii, Colorado and Florida. He eventually returned to New York to study acting at the American Stanislavsky Theatre, with Sharon Catten of the Actors Studio.

While honing his craft, he appeared in several films at New York University and worked as a bouncer at dance clubs in the city.

In 1984, he became a full-fledged member of the American Stanislavsky Theatre, appearing in The Petrified Forest, Of Mice and Men, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, and The Indian Wants the Bronx.

That same year, he made his Broadway debut in Open Admissions. He recently starred off-Broadway in Sam Shepard's Tooth of Crime (Second Dance).

Away from the set, D'Onofrio enjoys spending time in New York with his family.
