Birthplace: Lamesa, Texas, USA

A well-respected and busy character actor in films and on television for over three decades, Emmy-nominated Texas native Barry Corbin played larger-than-life figures in films like "Urban Cowboy" (1980) and "WarGames" (1983), as well as TV projects like "Lonesome Dove" (CBS, 1989), "Northern Exposure (CBS, 1990-95) and "One Tree Hill" (The WB, 2003-06; The CW, 2006-12). The son of a Lone Star State senator, Corbin fell in love with character actors as a boy, and began his long ride to the screen through work on stages across the country. "Urban Cowboy" marked his feature debut, and for the next 20 years, he was a near-ubiquitous presence as ornery cowboys, tough cops, military men and on occasion, a kindly father or mentor. Town patriarch and astronaut Maurice Minnifield on "Northern Exposure" became his best-known role, and the one that afforded him the widest character arc - he could be menacing one moment, wistful the next, and quite funny in every scene - and it brought him two Emmy nominations and more work in features like "No Country for Old Men" (2007) and series like "One Tree Hill." Familiar to just about anyone who attended a movie or turned on a television since 1980, Corbin enjoyed the best scenario that acting could provide - steady work and rewarding roles.
