      David Patrick Kelly

      David Patrick Kelly

      Highest Rated: 100% Fugitive Dreams (2020)

      Lowest Rated: 22% Asking for It (2021)

      Birthday: Jan 23, 1951

      Birthplace: Detroit, Michigan, USA

      Stage-trained character player of film and TV whose beady-eyed intensity and small wiry physique made him perfect for playing ferret-like punks and psychos in Hollywood genre films. Kelly trained with Stella Adler, studied mime with Marcel Marceau, and racked up NYC stage credits in musicals, dramas, and experimental theater. But film producer Joel Silver looked at him and saw a rat and cast him accordingly in Walter Hill's "The Warriors" (1979) and "48 Hrs." (1982), "Commando" (1985), and "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane" (1990). As Luther in "The Warriors" ("Warriors ... come out to play!" he crooned), Kelly committed the assassination for which the heroes are blamed and chased across the city. As Sully in "Commando," Arnold Schwarzenegger's character likes him so much that he promises to kill him last. (He lied.)
