Biography

A tall and imposing figure, with reddish brown hair and an amiable thug-next-door look, actor Cole Hauser racked up a good number of screen credits, frequently taking on supporting roles as the brute with a heart of gold, and occasionally delving into more sinister portrayals. He made his film debut in 1992's "School Ties." co-starring alongside a host of soon-to-be big name players, including Brendan Fraser, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. He worked with Affleck again the following year in Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused," also featuring a veritable talent pool ensemble cast. Here Hauser played Benny, a likable straight-talking football player, not as feel-good idealistic as quarterback Pink (Jason London) or as mindlessly brutal as two-time senior O'Bannion (Affleck).
