Biography

A tall, blond player of American film and stage with affecting eyes and a keen ability to elicit sympathy even if on the wrong side of good and evil, Terry Kinney is known within show business as one of the founders (along with Gary Sinise and John Malkovich, among others) of the prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. Kinney made his stage debut soon after Steppenwolf was founded in 1976 playing Murphy in a production of "The Indian Wants the Bronx". He has since gone on to play a host of roles, including Preacher Jim Casy in the award-winning production of "The Grapes of Wrath" which also went to Broadway and was later taped for PBS. Kinney directed "And a Nightingale Sang" in 1981 and Kinney starred in "Orphans" (1984), both of which were later produced in NYC. He returned to Broadway in 1996 co-starring in Sam Shepard's "Buried Child", directed by Gary Sinise.
