  • MICHAEL IRONSIDE

    February 12, 1950
    Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    Big screen Sci-fi fans will instantly recognize Michael Ironside, this Canadian-born thespian who first came to worldwide attention in the cult Cronenberg classic "Scanners" where he played the merciless mind controlling maverick who could blow up the head of his enemies. Indeed the famous scene where he does just that to an academic giving a talk about "scanning", is one of the enduring images of early 80's cinema.
          Ironside was equally good as baddie in "Total Recall" as a henchman pursuing Arnie. Next it was Christopher Lambert's turn to be hunted in "Highlander II", this time the psycopathic character Ironside plays makes a businessman eat his own gun, but Ironside seems to relish these roles in the sci-fi genre. More sci-fi followed in "Starship Troopers" but this time Ironside played a facist trying to destoy invading Aliens as a drill Sarge, so it's a case of reverting to type just when you think he's about to be a good guy.
          A menacing, some might say method actor, and as hard as nails, Ironside finally got with the heroes on "Top Gun" and his cameo as the fishing boss of George Clooney in "The Perfect Storm" sees a fine take off of a New England accent made so famous by JFK.
          A tough guy, even when he is playing a good guy, Ironside has found a very busy niche for himself and must be top of the list under "B" for Brooding. Screen presence? See "L" for Loads.
