Handsome, versatile and somewhat hawk-featured character player of stage, film and TV since the 1980s. The Washington, DC-born Carhart was raised in Izmir and Ankara, Turkey, and Verdun, France before settling back in the US where he studied theater. He worked on the off-Broadway stage before landing a series of small roles in some high profile films. Carhart found more work in TV guest spots, leads in busted pilots, and stints in recurring and regular roles including playing a laid-back businessman who woos Patricia Wettig on "thirtysomething" and a doctor colleague of Richard Chamberlain on "Island Son" (CBS, 1989-90). In features, Carhart may be best remembered for trying to rape Geena Davis in "Thelma and Louise" (1991). Supporting roles followed in "Red Rock West" (1993) as a deputy who gives Nicholas Cage a hard time and "Beverly Hills Cop III" (1994) as the mysterious head of security at an amusement park.
