      Though he engaged audiences in a variety of onscreen roles, actor Billy Campbell won his biggest acclaim on the small screen, particularly as the divorced father Rick Sammler on the drama "Once & Again" (ABC, 1999-2002). Prior to that role, Campbell earned a small degree of notoriety for being only one of two characters killed off in the infamous "Moldavian Massacre" cliffhanger during the season five finale of "Dynasty" (ABC, 1981-1989). He went on to play a rookie cop on the gritty, but short-lived "Crime Story" NBC, 1986-88) before making the jump to features with the titular role in "The Rocketeer" (1991). Following supporting parts in Francis Ford Coppola adaptation of "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992) and the Civil War epic "Gettysburg" (1993), Campbell went returned to the stage for a variety of acclaimed roles before appearing on "Once & Again." Once that show left the air, he went back to features to play the heavy in the revenge drama "Enough" (2002) and General George Pickett in "Gods and Generals" (2003). Returning to television in 2004, Campbell appeared on the sci-fi series "The 4400" (USA Network, 2004-07) and the teen-angst drama "The OC" (Fox, 2003-07), before earning more critical adulation for his role on "The Killing" (AMC 2011-13; Netflix, 2014), once again proving the actor's versatility in just about any medium.
