Trivia


Rode along with the Chicago Fire Dept.'s Squad 5 in preperation for his role in Backdraft.

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Hollywood doesn't crank out many Westerns these daysmore's the pity for this muscular, craggyfeatured actor (and ex-Marine), who's shown he's a natural in the saddle in such oaters as Cattle Annie and Little Britches (1981), Silverado (1985), and the rodeo drama My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys (1991). Though active in the 1970s, with small parts in films ranging from Nashville (1975) and Apocalypse Now (1979) to Angels Hard as They Come (1971) and Fighting Mad (1976), Glenn made a major impression on viewers as the vicious barfly in Urban Cowboy (1980). (Months earlier, he'd impressed everybody else by rescuing three small children from drowning.) Since then, he's wisely varied his roles, appearing as a swordsman/boxer in The Challenge a tough-but-fair track coach in Personal Best (both 1982), astronaut Alan Shepard in The Right Stuff an alien manhunter in The Keep (both 1983), a sleazy land-grabber in The River (1984), an ailing ex-boyfriend in Miss Firecracker (1989), a determined sub captain in The Hunt for Red October (1990), a coolly efficient FBI agent in The Silence of the Lambs and a bigoted firefighter in Backdraft (both 1991). More recently he appeared in Tall Tale (1995). Glenn's sober-sided screen persona may limit his choice of roles; he has been warm and casual, but you'd be hard pressed to see him in a performance described as "light" or "breezy." Nonetheless, he merits our continued attention and appreciation.
