Gary Cole is the talented, award-winning actor who first came to widespread fame in Fatal Vision, the 1984 mini-series, and continued to impress television audiences in Midnight Caller and American Gothic.

Born September 20, 1956, in Park Ridge, Illinois, he began his acting experience as Snoopy in a high school production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and was a cast member of every show afterward while he attended the school. He studied theatre at Illinois State University, and began his professional stage career in Chicago, where he co-founded the Remains Theatre Ensemble and, in 1985, became a member of the Steppenwolf Theatre ensemble. He has appeared in numerous award-winning productions in Chicago as well as off-Broadway in New York. He's done feature films including In the Line of Fire, The Brady Bunch Movie, and A Very Brady Sequel. He frequently exercises his talents in independent films and television movies.
