A tall, wavy-haired US actor with a deep, resonant voice, Clancy Brown has proved himself a versatile performer with first-class contributions to theater, feature films, television series and even animation.Clarence J. Brown III was born in 1959 in Urbana, Ohio, to Joyce Helen (Eldridge), a concert pianist, conductor, and composer, and Republican congressman Clarence J. "Bud" Brown, Jr., who helped manage the Brown Publishing Company, the family-owned newspaper started by Clancy's grandfather, Congressman Clarence J. Brown. Clancy spent much of his youth in close proximity to Washington, D.C. He plied his dramatic talents in the Chicago theater scene before moving onto feature film with a sinister debut performance bullying Sean Penn inside a youth reformatory in Bad Boys (1983). He portrayed Viktor the Monster in the unusual spin on the classic Frankenstein story in The Bride (1985), before scoring one of his best roles to date as the evil Kurgan hunting fellow immortals Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery across four centuries of time in Highlander (1986).Brown played a corrupt American soldier in the Walter Hill-directed hyper-violent action film Extreme Prejudice (1987), another deranged killer in Shoot to Kill (1988) and a brutal prison guard, who eventually somewhat "befriends" wrongfully convicted banker Tim Robbins, in the moving The Shawshank Redemption (1994). His superb vocal talents were in demand, and he contributed voices to animated series, including Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm (1995), Street Sharks (1994), Gargoyles (1994) and Superman (1996). Brown then landed two more plum roles, one as a "tough-as-nails" drill sergeant in the science fiction thriller Starship Troopers (1997), and the other alongside Robin Williams in the Disney comedy Flubber (1997).The video gaming industry took notice of Clancy's vocal abilities, too, and he has contributed voices to several top selling video games, including Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (2001), Lands of Lore III (1999), Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002) and Crash Nitro Kart (2003). His voice is also the character of cranky crustacean Mr. Eugene H. Krabs in the highly successful SpongeBob SquarePants (1999) animated series and films, and he contributed voices to The Batman (2004), Jackie Chan Adventures (2000) and Justice League (2001) animated series. A popular and friendly personality, Clancy Brown continues to remain busy both through his vocal and acting talents in Hollywood.Read More
Deep commanding voice.
The Voice of Lex Luthor in DC's Superman: The Animated Series.
Square jaw and bold blue eyes.
The voice of Mr. Krabs on SpongeBob SquarePants.
Often plays menacing, sinister villains and military characters.
Attended Northwestern University, where he was in the theater program.
Has three times played senior prison officers in movies dealing with miscarriages of justice: in The Shawshank Redemption (1994), the tyrannical Captain Hadley; in The Hurricane (1999), the sympathetic Lt. Williams; and in Last Light (1993) as Lt. McMannis.
Due to his role of Kurgan in Highlander (1986), his voice was featured on the Queen song "Gimme the Prize (Kurgan's Theme)". An alternate version appeared in the film itself, but samples of his voice are included on the 1986 studio album "A Kind of Magic".
Although his character Rawhide dies in The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984), he is still under contract to appear in a sequel to the film.
Describes himself as an avid reader who particularly enjoys the works of Frank Herbert.
Collects animation art.
Claims to have been introduced to acting by a neighbor who got him into William Shakespeare at a young age.
Was hospitalized after becoming sick from the prosthetic make up he wore as Viktor in The Bride (1985). He was reluctant to don prosthetics for his role in Highlander (1986).
On August 20, 2002, he was named chairman of the board of the Ohio-based Brown Publishing Company, a newspaper company owned by his family and founded by his grandfather. The company went out of business in 2010.
For Highlander (1986), he said that he made lifelong friends with Bob Anderson, the swordmaster for that film as well as the original Star Wars trilogy. He said if he had not been an actor, he would have been (in order) a fireman, an aristocrat, an archaeologist/anthropologist, a scuba diver and a circus acrobat.
[on the making of Highlander (1986)] For the scene we did in the church there could have been a wonderful dialogue - "God, this doesn't compare to the Greek Orthodox Church", or "I liked it better when they did it in Latin", or any type of thing. There's all sorts of twists that could have been done. I like the little twists like that because they make the audience think. "Highlander" still has its action and everything, but that's really all we went for here, the good guy/bad guy, cops-and-robbers type of thing.
Atrocities are human nature - they don't have political beliefs, color, creed or anything like that. They just happen, it's human.
Whatever comes next for this generation, that's going to be the greatest voice.
When you see something that's so excellent it can be intimidating to walk into it no matter how many people you know.
Why should we change on stage? We're not trying to be something big and fancy, it's just us, doing what we do, we'd like to keep it that way.
If it's something that reaches out and grabs me, I want to do it. I have a lot of trouble doing things that don't grab me. So, I'm not a very good actor in that way. I can't fake it.
It used to be that a son could look at the father, and pretty much know what life was gonna be like as an adult. There was confidence in that, and comfort in that, and frustration also.
I have a big voice so I do all the little boy cartoons.
All the movies where I play nice guys don't seem to do very well.
[on The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984)] I think it could have done well, but it got mixed up in one of those Hollywood studio game things, where they all change places. Buckaroo Banzai was just so strange that nobody really knew how to approach it. It really is way ahead of its time.
