      Highest Rated: 84% The Emerald Forest (1985)

      Lowest Rated: 10% Joan of Arc (1999)

      Birthday: Jun 1, 1948

      Birthplace: Snyder, Texas, USA

      A dependable character actor for over three decades, Emmy winner Powers Boothe lent grit to powerful men on both sides of the moral fence in a variety of diverse projects from "Red Dawn" (1984) and "Nixon" (1995) to "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06), "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "The Avengers" (2012) and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." (ABC 2013- ). Boothe made an indelible impression on audiences with his first major screen role as the deranged Reverend Jim Jones in "Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones" (CBS, 1980) before making the leap to features with Walter Hill's "Southern Comfort" (1981). He soon became a favorite for directors like Hill and Oliver Stone, who cast Boothe as flinty bad guys in "Extreme Prejudice" (1987), "U Turn" (1990) and "Nixon" (1995). "Deadwood" brought him back to prominence with his complex turn as a brutal but emotionally wounded brothel owner, which in turn led to high-profile parts on "24" and country music drama "Nashville" (ABC/CMT 2012- ), as well as significant supporting roles in "Sin City" (2005) and "The Avengers" (2012). Boothe's tough exterior and talent for intimate drama made him one of the most in-demand character actors in Hollywood. His death at the age of 68 on May 14, 2017 brought to an end a compelling career.
