Michael Biehn - Rotten Tomatoes

Michael Biehn

Michael Connell Biehn is an American actor. He is best known for his roles in James Cameron's science fiction action films, The Terminator, Aliens and The Abyss. Michael was born in Aniston, Alabama to parents Marcia and Don Biehn. He is the second of three children. When he was very young, he and his family moved to Lincoln, Nebraska. They moved again to Lake Havasu, Arizona where he graduated high school. The budding actor realized his love for film at a young age, awarded a drama scholarship to The University of Arizona. In his first year, Michael realized college wasn't for him and moved to Los Angeles in 1976. It wouldn't talk long for the film industry to recognize talent in the young star. He was given his first role a year later in a pilot called, James AT 16. The next year, Michael starred opposite Cathy Lee Crosby in his first feature film, Coach. And if you look close enough, you can spot Michael in the blockbuster hit, Grease starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. Since then, his film and television career has skyrocketed. His list of credits include the Oscar-nominated film The Magnificent Seven, The Fan, Stiletto, Deadly Intentions, The Seventh Sign, Tombstone, The Rock, Grindhouse, Planet Terror and Navy SEALS opposite Charlie Sheen. Michael has proven invaluable to award-winning director James Cameron, being cast in three of his films, The Terminator, The Abyss, and Aliens. He has also starred in two of director Franc Roddam's films, K2 and The Lords of Discipline. His foray into television has had him guest starring in several high-profile series, including Dark Blue, Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Hill Street Blues. Comedy isn't a genre Michael is famous for, but his first and only attempt gained him recognition. His comedic role in Susan's Plan, directed by John Landis, was well received by critics. He appeared this year in Puncture with Chris Evans and Mark Kassen. This year has been a busy one for Michael, his portrayal as Mickey in The Divide, directed by Xavier Gens, will be released Jan 13 2012. He is making his directorial debut with The Victim. Which just palyed in spain at the very prestigious Sitges film festival as an official selection in the midnite x-treme program.
