Biography

A versatile, talented actor especially active on TV and the stage, Keith Szarabajka has most often been cast in high-powered drama. Possessing a long face, clear eyes and handsome if slightly uneven features, he has most typically played intense, aggressive character roles. Szarabajka made his feature debut in "Simon" (1980) but made more of an impression alongside Sissy Spacek and Jack Lemmon in Costa-Gavras' potent political drama, "Missing" (1982). Several years later, he made his first filmic impression as Spacek's sympathetic friend in the government corruption expose, "Marie: A True Story" (1985) and subsequently appeared prominently in the enjoyable but minor action comedy "The Misfit Brigade" (1986) and as part of the gung-ho contingent of Alex Cox's misfire biopic "Walker" (1987). Since the late 80s, he has been less active on the big screen. He played a lobster fisherman in "Andre" (1994), and enjoyed a meatier role as Kevin Costner's nasty fellow prison escapee in "A Perfect World" (1993).
