      Matt Clark

      Highest Rated: 95% In the Heat of the Night (1967)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Nov 25, 1936

      Birthplace: Washington, D.C., USA

      A veteran character actor whose long career has included theater work and small parts in TV series, movies, and feature films, Matt Clark is one of those unsung actors whose face is instantly recognizable although one may not recall the name. With his broad features and dark Irish looks, he has been cast on both sides of the law in many Westerns and detective films. Born in Washington, DC, Clark settled in NYC in the early 1960s and trained for the stage with Uta Hagen, Herbert Berghof and William Hickey. He landed the leading role of Stephen Dedalus in an Off-Broadway version of James Joyce's "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" (1963). Clark did double duty as stage manager and understudy to Martin Sheen on Frank Gilroy's award-winning Broadway play "The Subject Was Roses." Around the same time, his film career began to gather steam with a featured turn in Norman Jewison's Oscar-winner "In the Heat of the Night" (1967).
