      Michael Wincott

      Michael Wincott

      Highest Rated: 84% The Crow (1994)

      Lowest Rated: 10% The Sicilian (1987)

      Birthday: Jan 21, 1958

      Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

      Brooding, charismatic and sensuously evil villains were the stock and trade of Michael Wincott, a classically trained stage actor who first found broad recognition as the malevolent Guy of Gisborne in the Kevin Costner hit "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991). The Toronto-born Wincott began acting in Canadian film and television before moving to New York City to attend Julliard School of Drama. There, he established himself on stage in the original 1987 production of "Talk Radio" and on film in Oliver Stone's big screen adaptation of the play the following year. Wincott worked steadily on stage and television, appearing in two more back-to-back films for Oliver Stone, "Born of the Fourth of July" (1989) and "The Doors" (1991), but it would be his performance as Guy of Gisborne in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991) that would introduce Wincott to his then largest audience. His ability to play both menacing and seductive would see him frequently cast as villains, most notably in "The Three Musketeers" (1993), "The Crow" (1994), "Alien: Resurrection" (1997), "Along Came a Spider" (2001) and "The Count of Monte Cristo" (2002). His signature baritone growl of a voice also made him a sought-after voice actor for such blockbuster videogames as "Halo 2" (2004) and "Darksiders 2" (2012). A talented and versatile actor on both stage and screen, Michael Wincott nevertheless embraced the mantle of a character actor and created some of the most memorable screen villains of the 1990s and 2000s.
