Biography

A prolific actor known to crank out up to six films a year, Jeff Fahey was pretty much hovering around "vaguely familiar-looking" status when he joined the cast of the hit "Lost" (ABC, 2004- ) in the fall of 2007. Fahey had enjoyed a few high-profile roles in the 1990s, starring in the creepy thriller "Lawnmower Man" (1992) and two seasons of the action drama "The Marshal" (ABC, 1992-94), but he had largely been content to be a working actor, appearing mostly in low-budget independent genre films for overseas and DVD distribution. A 2007 role in Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez' "Grindhouse" boosted the actor's reputation, and with news of his addition to the "Lost" cast, Fahey seemed ready to make the transition from B-lister to solid prime time player.
