      In 1984, character actor Marshall Bell made his film debut at the relatively late age of 42 -- in the Matthew Modine and Nicolas Cage-starring war drama, "Birdy" -- and he worked as if making up for lost time ever since. The following year, Bell appeared as Coach Schneider, a key character in the second installment of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" horror film franchise, and then in 1986, he played Wil Wheaton's father, Mr. Lachance, in Rob Reiner's classic coming of age adventure drama, "Stand By Me." He began picking up recurring TV roles in 1987, including a part on the short-lived cop drama "The Oldest Rookie" and appearances in two drastically disparate Arnold Schwarzenegger films: the 1988 Ivan Reitman comedy, "Twins," with Danny DeVito, followed by Paul Verhoeven's sci-fi action movie, "Total Recall." By then, Bell was firmly cemented onto casting directors' radars. Through the second half of the '90s, Bell was offered a string of military officer or cop-type parts that climaxed in 1997, when he re-united with Verhoeven, playing General Owen in the sci-fi epic "Starship Troopers," which was adapted from the novel by Robert A. Heinlein. Since then, Bell's roles have shown more range -- from a role as an admiral in 2006's "Rescue Dawn," Werner Herzog's biographical drama about the escape of a war prisoner in, to a role as Principal Rocker in the comedy flop "Hamlet 2," from 2008. Bell is married to multiple Oscar-winning costume designer Milena Canonero.
