A character actor best known as various officers of the law and the military, Guy Boyd has performed in theatrical and screen productions for over 30 years. Born in Chicago, he hit the stage in the mid '70s, playing both New York City and Los Angeles and making his Broadway debut in 1981 in "Rose," beside Glenda Jackson and Jessica Tandy. Beginning in the late '70s, he began appearing in films and on TV , in such popular primetime fare as "The Incredible Hulk" and "Hawaii-Five-O." Though he had the rare distinction of sharing the Venice Film Festival best actor award with the rest of the leading actors from Robert Altman's 1983 filmed adaptation of David Rabe's military play "Streamers," he is better remembered for his turn the following year as the twisted Detective McLean in Brian De Palma's thriller, "Body Double." In addition to numerous TV guest spots, parts in minor features, and further theatrical performances, he made repeat appearances on crime dramas such as "Miami Vice" and the primetime soap "Knots Landing." He landed a rare regular role on the single season of the masked vigilante crime-fighter serial "Black Scorpion," co-created by B-movie legend Roger Corman, and reprised his part for a couple of straight-to-video releases. Turns in more prominent fare have included a stint in the renowned Broadway play "August: Osage County" and as a supporting player in "The Savages," the drama about aging parents featuring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney.
