Revered for his charming lead performance in Rob Reiner's classic fairy tale, "The Princess Bride" (1987), British actor Cary Elwes went on to find success largely in supporting roles in a variety of genres. He showed a career-long interest in period films, donning medieval tights again in the satirical "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" (1993), which solidified his believability as a genuine swashbuckler throwback, a la Errol Flynn. In his higher profile Hollywood work, the actor appeared as Tom Cruise's rival in "Days of the Thunder" (1991) before sending up the action film genre in "Hot Shots" (1991). He supported Jim Carrey in the comedy "Liar Liar" (1997), chased storms in "Twister" (1996), and while he was initially typecast for his dashing, patrician air, Elwes' later career was marked by darker roles in genre material like "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002), "Saw" (2004) and "The Riverman" (A&E, 2004), the latter of which saw him portraying infamous serial killer Ted Bundy. The actor's charm and humor was still on display, however, with animated voice work on the CGI adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" (2009) and a recurring role as the roguish Pierre Despereaux on the TV dramedy "Psych" (USA, 2006-14). By turns dashing, sinister or downright silly, Elwes maintained a well-earned reputation as one of the most dependable and versatile actors of his generation.
