Russell and Robert De Niro; the Academy Award-winning Silence of the Lambs, with Anthony Hopkins

After a tour in the U.S. Marine Corps, Glenn moved to New York to perfect his work with dialogue
for his intended career as a novelist/playwright. After one day as a student of famed actor/teacher William
Hickey, Glenn knew that acting would be his life. He continued to study with Lee Strasberg and George
Morrison as a member of the Actors Studio and appeared in numerous theatrical productions both On and
Off-Broadway throughout his early acting career.
A move to Hollywood resulted in small parts in such films as Robert Altman's Nashville and larger roles in some Roger Corman low budget films. In 1970, James Bridges cast him in his first lead role in The Baby Maker, with Barbara Hershey.
Glenn continues to work on stage, most recently in New York productions of "Killer Joe" (Best Actor nomination from the Drama Desk Awards), with Amanda Plummer: "Dark Rapture," with Marisa
Tomei; "Killer's Head" and Lanford Wilson's "Burn This."
