Birthplace: Ivoryton, Connecticut, USA

A brown-haired actor of medium build with malleable good looks that lent credence to portrayals of all-American charmers as well as sinister psychopaths, Lee Tergesen has enjoyed a varied career, snagging roles he has certainly made the most of since his debut in the early 1990s, not the least of which was his shockingly candid turn on the HBO series "Oz" (1997-2003). A graduate of Manhattan's American Musical and Dramatic Academy, this Connecticut native acted on the NYC stage and waited tables in the city in the late 1980s, where and when he was spotted by writer-producer Tom Fontana. With a 1990 episode of NBC's "Law & Order" to his credit, Tergesen relocated to Los Angeles for a Fontana-aided role in the surfers-as-bank-robbers action flick "Point Break" (1991) and proceeded to get parts in television-premiered projects including Lifetime's "The Killing Mind" and the HBO-screened thriller "Cast a Deadly Spell."

Arkin says: Be careful. It's built like a maze, the whole place is rigged.

Lucello says: That's why you're leading us in.

Arkin says: (After being handed a small flashlight for protection) Are you kidding me?

Arkin says: [after being handed a small flashlight for protection] Are you kidding me?

Lucello says: No.

Lucello says: He's agreed to take us to the girl.

Elena's Father says: And the police?

Lucello says: They had their chance. What this man deserves is beyond the law.

Arkin says: What makes you think you'll find him when the cops can't?

Lucello says: Because I'm willing to do the things they won't.

Lucello says: Was she alive?

Arkin says: Last time I saw her.

Holden says: I'm looking for the girl.

Sheriff Hoyt says: The girl? She's right there. (Points to Bailey)

Holden says: That's not her.

Sheriff Hoyt says: Well if that's not the girl then...oh I don't think you wanna see the other one.

Chrissie says: What about my friends?

Holden says: F**k your friends! You're on your own.

Chrissie says: You A**hole!

Chrissie says: You a**hole!
