Nick Searcy, Oscar Winning Performance
Nick Searcy is an international movie and TV star, but you knew that.
You might know him from Justified, Fried Green Tomatoes, CSI, The West Wing and From The Earth to the Moon.
Heck, he is such a good actor he even had a role in Cast Away, and considering that it was a film of a man on a deserted island, you know he has to be good to get in on that action.
From 1982 to 1989, Searcy lived in New York where he did Off-Broadway plays. Some of these included Guys and Dolls, Cabaret and Jesus Christ Superstar. When he moved back to North Carolina, he began to act in features that were shooting locally. Small parts in Days of Thunder (1990) and The Prince of Tides led to the role of the malicious Frank in Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)
Searcy has appeared in several television series. He had a recurring role as Brett on Thunder Alley, was a series regular on American Gothic and guest starred on Murder One and Nash Bridges with Don Johnson. He was a regular character on the series Seven Days from 1998 to 2001, and played Barry Martin on the ABC series Rodney, from 2004 to 2006. He has also starred in several TV movies, but I don't think we need to go into that much detail.
Nick is not just an amazing actor, he is also an extremely funny man.
Recently he has written, produced, starred in and directed a series called 'Acting School' an exceptionally tongue in cheek look at a TV star's life and 'method' in his art.
Enjoy them, I know that I did!
