John Diehl - Rotten Tomatoes

John Diehl

Highest Rated:   100% Fail Safe (2000)
Lowest Rated:   0% Madhouse (1990)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
On the New York theatrical scene, American actor John Diehl is best known for his work in a variety of avant-garde and experimental productions. Diehl's film characterizations are among the more traditional lines of petty thieves and psycho killers (vide 1984's Angel). After seeing Diehl portray an assortment of punks, wackos, and malcontents, it came as a surprise (and a bit of a relief) to see him cast as a normal suburban dad -- albeit an obnoxious one -- in Falling Down (1993). John Diehl may be most familiar to television viewers for his multi-season stint as laid-back Detective Larry Zito on TV's Miami Vice.
