From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Tom Noonan (born April 12, 1951) is an American actor and film writer-director, originally from tony Greenwich, Connecticut.

He started working in theatre (appearing in the original Off-Broadway production Sam Shepard's play Buried Child, but in the 1980s he began working in film. Six-foot-six-inches in height, Noonan's imposing presence is probably responsible for his tendency to be cast as menacing villains, such as in RoboCop 2 and Last Action Hero.

In 1986, Noonan played Francis Dolarhyde, a serial killer who kills entire families, in Manhunter, the first movie to feature Hannibal Lecter. To date, it is his most recognizable role.

In the 1990s he wrote various plays, including two that he made into movies, What Happened Was... (1994) and The Wife (1995).

He has also made numerous appearances in television shows, including The X-Files, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (in which he starred alongside William Petersen, who played his nemesis, Will Graham, in Manhunter).
