Unassuming, stage-trained performer who made his film acting debut in "The Boys in Company C" (1978--he also contributed a song), was featured in the fine adaptation of Peter Straub's "Ghost Story" (1981) and was widely seen as the voyeur-in-over-his-head in Brian De Palma's lurid thriller "Body Double" (1984). Craig Wasson has been combining an acting career with his music since the outset of his professional endeavors. He toured the U.S. in the musical "Godspell" from 1973-74, and made his Broadway debut playing the harmonica and singing in "All God's Chillun Got Wings" (1975), and also played the second waiter in the Circle in the Square's production of "Death of a Salesman" that same year, providing the incidental music as well. Wasson first won notice on TV when he joined the cast of the CBS series "Phyllis" in 1977 as the guy who married Bess Lindstrom. He also provided music for the series, as he did on his second series, "Skag," in which he was the Serbian-Jewish son of factory worker Karl Malden in the 1980 effort and 1979 TV movie pilot. Wasson has also been appearing in TV movies since 1975, when he co-starred in "The Silence" (NBC). He was particularly memorable as Glynnis O'Connor's husband in "Why Me?" (1984), and he also starred in "Trapped in Space," one of the first movies made specifically for the Sci-Fi Channel (1995). On the big screen, Wasson played a bit as a hippie in "Rollercoaster" (1977), and first won a substantial role in "Boys in Company C" (1978), as well a rave reviews for "Ghost Story" (1981) as the object of evil from a 50-year old secret, and for "Four Friends," also released in 1981, in which he was a Yugoslavian immigrant adjusting to life in rollicking America. Wasson also provided music for "Second Thoughts" (1983) and also co-starred as the still-living-in-the-sixties beau of Lucie Arnaz. In "Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" (1987), he helped Heather Langenkamp battle Freddy. More recently, he had a small role as a TV host in "Malcolm X" (1992).
