Biography

A striking, versatile young character player, Kevin J O'Connor began his career in his native Chicago with the Steppenwolf Theater. He made his film debut shortly after leaving college as the bohemian poet who takes Kathleen Turner for a motorcycle ride in "Peggy Sue Got Married" (1984). O'Connor went on to make his TV debut as a reporter under Robert Altman's direction in HBO's "Tanner '88" (1988) and also appeared in the director's TV remake of "The Caine Mutiny Court Martial" (CBS, 1988). The actor also has enjoyed an association with Altman associate Alan Rudolph on "The Moderns" (1988, as Ernest Hemingway) and "Equinox" (1993). O'Connor scored as the mysterious magician Philip Swann in "Lords of Illusions" (1995) and portrayed Brendan Fraser's buddy in both "Gods and Monsters" (1998) and "The Mummy" (1999). Although he has previously attempted to find small screen success with the short-lived series like "Birdland" (ABC, 1994) and "The Others" (NBC, 2000), O'Connor looked to find a stronger vehicle portraying an oncologist in "Gideon's Crossing" (ABC, 2000-01).
