TOM SKERRITT (Radley Tate), winner of the Emmy Award for Best Actor for his starring role as Sherriff Jimmy Brock in CBS' Emmy-winning dramatic series "Picket Fences," is regarded as one of the most versatile and acclaimed American actors.

Beginning with his role in Robert Altman's classic comedy "M*A*S*H" to the critically-lauded film "A River Runs Through It," directed by Robert Redford, Skerritt's performances are a study of the strength of subtlety, in an array of television and film productions. Most recently, he co-starred in the summer blockbuster film "Contact," with Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey and James Woods and directed by Robert Zemeckis. Skerritt's over thirty-five feature film credits include "The Turning Point," "Alien," "Top Gun" and "Steel Magnolias."

His television work includes starring in the USA Network's "Divided by Hate," which also gave Skerritt the opportunity to return to his first love, directing. He also starred in the highly rated Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation of "What the Deaf Man Heard," co-starring Matthew Modine, Judith Ivey and James Earl Jones. Recently, Skerritt starred opposite Kris Kristofferson in the TNT original movie "Two for Texas."

Along with his numerous television appearances, Skerritt is particularly proud of his direction of the ABC-TV After School Special "A Question of Sex," which dealt with the controversial issue of whether birth control information should be disseminated on high school campuses, as well as several episodes of "Picket Fences," in which he also starred.

In a rare theater appearance, Skerritt co-starred with Lee Remick in the Los Angeles production of "Love Letters." He has also teamed with former co-star Kathy Baker, for several performances of "Love Letters" to benefit the Laguna Art Museum.
