Kathleen Brennan (1980 - present)

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Innovative growly-voiced singer and composer who has scored as an actor in a number of eclectic roles. He started his music career while working as a doorman and living in his car, before cutting his first album, "Closing Time," in 1973. He made his film debut in Sylvester Stallone's Paradise Alley (1978) and was nominated for a Best Original Song Score Oscar for Francis Ford Coppola's One From the Heart (1982). He has subsequently appeared in Coppola's The Outsiders, Rumble Fish (both 1983), The Cotton Club (1984), and Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992, surprisingly effective as the mad Renfield), and has also given impressive performances in On the Yard (1979), Down by Law (1986), Candy Mountain, Ironweed (both 1987), Cold Feet, Mystery Train (both 1989, voice only in the latter), The Fisher King, At Play in the Fields of the Lord, Queens Logic (all 1991), and Short Cuts (1993). Waits' songs have been featured in many films and he was lionized in Big Time (1988), which combined footage of him in concert and in a series of vignettes playing various characters.
