Biography

Veteran TV actor John Considine played a myriad of supporting roles in a wide range of dramas, comedies, and sitcoms. Considine -- whose father was a studio producer -- began his acting career as a child in small roles. But it was only in the 1960s that he began acting with any degree of seriousness. He played Agent Dale Grant on "The F.B.I." and had one-off roles in such series as "The Twilight Zone", "My Favorite Martian", and "Mannix". He was also cast in the soap operas "The Young and the Restless", "Bright Promise", and "Another World" (playing Vic Hastings and later Reginald Love). Considine served as a screenwriter, writing the script for Robert Altman's ensemble drama "A Wedding" (1978). He first met Altman on the set of the WWII show "Combat!", where the actor was cast in a guest role as a soldier. After finishing the surreal "3 Women", Altman wanted to return to the broad canvas of "Nashville", and offered Considine the opportunity to write the script. However Altman issued one challenge: double the 24 characters of "Nashville" to 48. Considine later wrote episodes of "MacGyver", "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues", and "Robocop".
