Charles Howerton, one of the “Ten Best Actors in LA Theatre.”
My first few years in Los Angeles were spent learning to exist. I sold raw fabric and business forms to supplement my income working in equity waiver theatre. My break came when John Forsythe (of Dynasty) taught a comedy class I was in, then called a few months later to offer me a part in his new series. That got me my Screen Actors Guild card, and led to roles on other television shows and soap operas. Cut to many years later and I’ve since played Sheriffs (Threat Matrix & Smokey Bites the Dust), Military Officials (GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra & Threshold), Presidents (The West Wing & Assassination), a Scientist (Godzilla), a Professor (Incident at Vichy), and most recently, Grandpa (a role I play in real life too). Could go on, but my Resume and Biography have more detail.
