Clancy Brown

Dr. Albert Marconi
  • This prolific and versatile actor emerged from the Chicago theatrical scene of the early 1980's. Roles such as "Jean" in August Strindberg's Miss Julie; "Aaron" in Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus; and "Geisler" in Glen DeCoasta's A Constant Wish brought him to the attention of critics and audiences alike. His film debut as "Viking" in BAD BOYS starring Sean Penn, brought him to the attention of Hollywood.

    Brown’s career encompasses both distinguished and quirky roles.  Legions of HIGHLANDER fans know him as the prototype immortal villain "Kurgan" in the initial film that grew into a franchise.

  • Then there is the ferocious "Captain Hadley" in the multiple Oscar® nominated film THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.  On television, Clancy found fans with his portrayal of the 1934 preacher, Brother Justin Crowe, on HBO’s Emmy® award-winning series, “Carnivale.”

    Brown’s films have crossed the genres from thrillers (PATHFINDER, BLUE STEEL; PET SEMATARY 2) to true-life drama (DESPERATE RESCUE; LOVE, LIES AND MURDER; THE MAN WHO BROKE 1000 CHAINS); from family films (THE SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS MOVIE, FLUBBER) to social dramas (NORMAL, THE LARAMIE PROJECT);

  • from action dramas (COWBOYS AND ALIENS, THE GUARDIAN, STARSHIP TROOPERS; EXTREME PREJUDICE; SHOOT TO KILL) to animation (SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS; THE JUSTICE LEAGUE; SUPER ROBOT MONKEY). Some of his work defies conventional classification (THE BRIDE; CAST A DEADLY SPELL; and cult favorite THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI).Brown was born in the rural southwestern Ohio town of Urbana, where his family still lives and operates the local newspaper. He attended Northwestern University on a track scholarship and remains an active alumnus. He was married to television news producer, Jeanne Johnson in 1993 and is the proud father of a daughter and son.
