Peter Greene rapidly established himself as the screen villain of the 1990s with a host of characterizations in both dark melodramas and spry comedies. His pale-faced image was forever emblazoned in the consciousness of moviegoers who saw him as Zed, the security guard playing "eenie, meenie, moe" while sodomizing Ving Rhames in Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" (1994). Greene had made his first feature film in a starring role for neophyte writer-director Nick Gomez in "Laws of Gravity" (1992), in which he was a petty criminal trying to sell some handguns and torn by loyalties. In 1993, he gave a haunting performance as a schizophrenic trying to meet his daughter in "Clean, Shaven". Greene was a gang member in "Judgment Night" (also 1993) and Dorian Tyrel, the creepy night club owner whom Jim Carrey flushes down the toilet in "The Mask" (1994). Since the release of "Pulp Fiction" gave him high notice, Greene has played the fence in "The Usual Suspects" and a terrorist in "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory" (both 1995) and Halle Berry's blackmailer in the thriller "The Rich Man's Wife" (1996).
