THE OTHER SISTER
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.
