      Ron Silver

      Ron Silver

      Highest Rated: 92% Reversal of Fortune (1990)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Jul 2, 1946

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      Though he originally aspired to work for the State Department, actor Ron Silver eventually succumbed to his college ambition of becoming a performer. First making a name for himself off-Broadway, Silver eventually transitioned to the small screen, where he made regular appearances on several short-lived sitcoms and acclaimed made-for-television movies. He began to rise to prominence through his work in features, including "Silent Rage" (1982) and "Silkwood" (1983). But it was his stage work that helped make Silver a star, which culminated in a Tony-winning performance in David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow" (1988). Silver built a successful film and television career off his win, including a well-regarded turn as attorney Alan Dershowitz in "Reversal of Fortune" (1990). Though he continued to rack up an impressive array of credits, Silver was never a top box office draw, despite his immeasurable talents in both comedy and as over-the-top villains in movies like "Blue Steel" (1991) and "Timecop" (1994). Silver saved his best work for television, making valuable contributions to "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) and proving that he was capable of turning in top-notch performances in any medium he chose.
