Scottish character actor Andrew Airlie began his career with a bit part in Andrew Bergman's 1990 mob comedy "The Freshman," starring Marlon Brando and Matthew Broderick. Working steadily through the decade, Airlie appeared in several B movies and in guest roles on such TV shows as "The X Files" and "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues" before gaining more substantial parts in the '00s. In 2003 he was seen in the horror movie "Final Destination 2" and the all-star journalism drama "Shattered Glass," followed by parts on the popular shows "Smallville," "Stargate SG-1," and "The 4400." Airlie played recurring roles on two series in 2006, as Dr. Daniel Lanier on "Saved" and Don Frazer on the critically acclaimed "Intelligence." His best-known role is that of Mr. Oliver, the hapless father of main character Sam Oliver on the cult action comedy "Reaper." Following the end of that critically beloved but low-rated show, Airlie went on to play Mike Goss on the sci-fi drama "Defying Gravity."
