Biography

Native American actor Steve Reevis has appeared alongside some of Hollywood's biggest actors, but is best known for his role as a quiet ex-con in the Oscar-winning film "Fargo. " Reevis, who grew up on a Blackfoot reservation in rural Montana, left the reservation to attend college in Kansas and later moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. After struggling to break into Hollywood, in 1988 Reevis made his film debut as a rough and tumble bar patron in the surprise hit film "Twins," about wildly different fraternal twins (Danny DeVito, Arnold Schwarzenegger) who are reunited years after being separated at birth. He worked steadily through the '90s, appearing in high-profile films like Kevin Costner's epic Civil War drama "Dances with Wolves" and "The Doors," Oliver Stone's psychedelic biography of Jim Morrison, the influential rock group's lead singer who died at the age of 27. In 1996 Reevis landed his biggest role yet when he was cast in the Coen Brothers' crime thriller "Fargo" as Shep Proudfoot, the ex-con and car mechanic who arranges a meeting between a desperate car salesman and two ruthless kidnappers. Since then Reevis has appeared on primetime series like the domestic comedy "Malcolm in the Middle"; portrayed an opportunistic kidnapper in the Western drama "The Missing"; and scored a rare comedic role as a philosophically-inclined criminal in the 2005 remake of prison comedy "The Longest Yard."
