Vintage Celebrity Saturday

He's one of mine & Rusty's favorite actors. He's been in a lot of big movies, he even played a superhero...a hot one. This dude's been comedies, dramas & action movies but I'm a little disappoint that he hasnt been in anything to big lately cause he's good, really good.

  • Born December 31, 1959 in Los Angeles, CA.
  • His middle name is Edward.
  • Was married to Joanne Whalley from 1988 - 1996 & they have 2 children together.
  • Attended Chatsworth High School with Kevin Spacey and Mare Winningham.
  • Was at the time the youngest student ever accepted into Juilliard's Drama department. His record has been supplanted by Juilliard student Seth Numrich, who was admitted at 15 in 2002.
  • A Led Zeppelin fan.
  • Is the fifth actor to play Batman.
  • Did his own singing while playing Jim Morrison in The Doors (1991). The real members of the band said they had difficulty distinguishing his voice from that of Morrison's.
  • Turned down a role in The Outsiders (1983) because he was working with a theater company at the time, and if he had pulled out, the show would have been canceled and his fellow actors out of a job.
  • Is the only blond actor to have played Bruce Wayne/Batman.
  • Did not want to appear in Top Gun (1986) but was forced to do so because of contractual obligations.
  • Admits in interviews that he is a horrible cook.
  • After his first film, Top Secret! (1984), he went off and backpacked around Europe.
  • Loves buffalo and owns several on his ranch in New Mexico.
  • He and Elvis Presley, whom he portrayed in True Romance (1993), both have Cherokee ancestry.
  • Grew up in the San Fernando Valley the middle son of three boys (Mark the eldest; Wesley the youngest). During his high school years, Wesley drowned in the family's swimming pool, an incident he claims inspired his subsequent performance in The Salton Sea (2002).
  • During the filming of Streets of Blood, 50 Cent became good friends with him. The two actors bonded over their love of vintage cars and 50 Cent stunned him by giving him the keys of a 1965 Chevy Impala which the singer-turned-actor purchased for $100,000.

Any idea who he might be?
