Like his brothers David, Robert and Bruce and half-brother Michael Bowen, Keith Carradine followed in the footsteps of his father, John Carradine, and became an actor in the early 1970s. He enjoyed considerable success in that decade thanks to performances in independent-minded films like "Nashville" (1975), "Welcome to L.A." (1976) and "Pretty Baby" (1978). Carradine branched into Hollywood features in the 1980s, but found more success on Broadway in the following decade, most notably with his Tony-nominated turn as American humorist Will Rogers in "The Will Rogers Follies" (1991). Carradine later divided his time between features and television, often in Western roles which benefited from his laconic presence, particularly as Wild Bill Hickok on David Milch's brilliant revisionist series, "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-07). By the time he played a formidable FBI agent hunting down the titular serial killer in "Dexter" (Showtime, 2006-13), Carradine had proven himself to be a highly-sought and versatile actor comfortable in both leading and supporting roles.
