From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Frank Whaley is an American film and television actor known for his roles in independent films.

Born July 20, 1963, in Syracuse, New York, Whaley began acting as a teenager. He made his film debut in 1987's Ironweed, and performed mostly in made-for-TV movies until 1989, when he appeared in Born on the Fourth of July, alongside Tom Cruise. This began a long collaboration with director Oliver Stone, including 1991's The Doors (in which he played Robbie Krieger) and, in the same year, JFK (in which he played a conspirator in the JFK assassination.)

Over the next two years, he played supporting roles in movies such as Hoffa and Swing Kids. He appeared in his first leading film role in 1994's Swimming with Sharks, in which he starred opposite Kevin Spacey. The following year, he played a supporting role as a college student gunned down by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta's hitmen in Pulp Fiction.

In 1998, he garnered a regular role on the CBS series Buddy Faro. He has also appeared in episodes of The Dead Zone, Law & Order, and its spinoff Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

He made his directorial debut, Joe the King, in 1999, featuring his Doors costar Val Kilmer and longtime friend and colleague Ethan Hawke in starring roles.
