Biography

Though best known as a cop on several short-lived TV series, Canadian actor Gary Basaraba has had supporting roles in a number of noteworthy films, "The Last Temptation of Christ" and "Fried Green Tomatoes. " After attending the Yale School of Drama, he played his first feature parts in the later works of renowned directors Louis Malle and Karel Reisz. Stepping up to share the lead, he played the husband of Mary Steenburgen's character in the Disney holiday fantasy "One Magic Christmas." He dipped into TV series with guest spots on "Miami Vice" before landing the part of Andrew the Apostle in Martin Scorsese's controversial biblical tale, "The Last Temptation of Christ." Though Basaraba's subsequent projects varied, he often found himself cast as an officer of the law, as was the case in both the soap opera "Another World" and the drama "Fried Green Tomatoes." Contrarily, however, he also played celebrated journalist Heywood Broun in "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle." At around the same time as that film, he began finding mostly TV work, frequently in guest spots on dramas. He played regular roles as police officers on two series, "Brooklyn South" and "Boomtown," but neither lasted beyond a single season.
