Biography

A dark-haired actor with an amiable, average appeal that made him instantly familiar to audiences, Skipp Sudduth moved from small town Virginia to Chicago in the mid-1980s in pursuit of a stage acting career. He joined the famed Steppenwolf Theatre Company in 1988, working alongside such actors as John C Reilly and company founder Gary Sinise. When Steppenwolf's production of "The Grapes of Wrath" made it to Broadway, Sudduth relocated to Manhattan, where he was subsequently featured in the short-lived Broadway adaptation of "On the Waterfront" (1995). With TV credits including the movie presentations "Lethal Innocence" (PBS, 1991) "The Secret" (CBS, 1992) and "Daybreak" (HBO, 1993), Sudduth made his feature debut in "Clockers", playing a narcotics officer in Spike Lee's gripping 1995 offering. That same year she was featured in the action thriller "Money Train", and guested in episodes of the New York-lensed TV series "Law & Order" (NBC) and "New York News" (CBS). He could next be seen performing in the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle "Eraser" as well as episodes of the action-packed TV-series "Swift Justice" (UPN) and "Kindred: The Embraced" (Fox). A role in the TNT biopic miniseries "George Wallace" alongside Gary Sinise followed in 1997.
