Raymond J. Barry - Rotten Tomatoes

Raymond J. Barry



Fans of the hit Fox television series The X-Files will recognize character actor Raymond J. Barry as U.S. Senator Matheson, a government official who seems to support agent Fox Muldur on his search for the supernatural and alien life forms on Earth. A versatile artist, Barry has worked steadily on stage (both on and off-Broadway), television, and the screen since the 1960s. In addition to acting, he has also written and directed experimental pieces with such New York-based groups as the Living Theater, the New York Shakespeare company, and the Open Theater. On television he has worked in soap operas, series, and movies. Between 1987 and 1988, he was a regular on The Oldest Rookie. Barry began appearing in feature films in the mid-'70s and has been working steadily ever since playing major supporting roles in a number of major films including that of Ron Kovic's father in Born on the Fourth of July (1989), the father of a murder victim in Dead Man Walking, and a crazed, gun-wielding criminal in Headless Body in Topless Bar (1995).
