BIOGRAPHY:

Michael Rooker (born April 6, 1955) in Jasper, Alabama. When he was 13 his parents divorced and he went with his mother to live in Chicago. He 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.


TRIVIA:
  • He unofficially reprised his Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer role for the music video "All Wrapped Up" by heavy metal band American Head Charge.
  • He is a graduate of Chicago's Goodman School of Drama
  • Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer was Michael Rooker's first movie which was filmed in 1986 but was not released until years later.
  • Ranked #17 on Tropopkin's Top 25 Most Intriguing People [Issue #100]
  • Studied Japanese martial art of Akido with Fumio Toyoda Shihan prior to establishing himself in Chicago theatre.
