M.C. GAINEY (Hoyt) is a veteran character actor who has appeared in more than
200 television shows and movies over the last thirty years. A native of the Deep
South, Gainey's imposing size, trademark handlebar mustache, and "honest" face
have allowed him to portray a wide variety of convicts, cowboys, and killers.
Gainey's long television career, from Happy Days and Dynasty, to Justified and
Enlightened, encompasses every genre. His recurring roles on shows like
Designing Women (T.Tommy Reed), Briscoe County (Big Smith), LOST (Tom Friendly),
and Justified (Bo Crowder), have stamped him as a "career criminal" of every
Gainey's film career runs from lighthearted kid pics such as The Mighty Ducks,
Country Bears, Tangled, and Are We There Yet?, to adult comedies Wild Hogs,
Beerfest, and The Dukes of Hazzard. He also has been featured in
blood-splattered thrillers including Breakdown, Geronimo and Wonderland. HE had
a pivotal role in the action thriller Con Air, and has been reunited with the
director Simon West and Nicolas Cage on STOLEN.
Gainey appeared in indie film hits Sideways, Happy Texas, and Love Ranch. He
will soon be seen in Haunted High School, Babymakers, and director Quentin
Tarantino's Django Unchained.
While Gainey's characters have usually wound up jailed, stabbed, blown up, eaten
alive by wolves, or gunned down by generations of cops, he jumped at the chance
to play the character Hoyt in STOLEN, as he proclaims, "Crime does make strange
and wonderful bedfellows."
