Stacy Keach

Known world-wide for his classic portrayal of detective Mike Hammer, he is a consummate actor who is equally at home on stage, film or television. NY Times Drama critic dubbed him “The finest American classical actor since John Barrymore.” He’s received a Best Actor Golden Globe, been nominated for Emmy and Tony awards, won three Obie’s, three Vernon Rice awards, the Helen Hayes Award, and the Prestigious Millennium Recognition Award for his outstanding contribution to the classical theater.
