Nick Searcy


Date Of Birth

March 7, 1959


Actor Nick Searcy was born on March 7, 1959 in Cullowhee, North Carolina. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, he began his career in theater, appearing in numerous off-Broadway productions. He only started gaining prominence, however, in the 1990s, when he first cracked acting for film and television. Small roles in regional productions led to some degree of recognition in the 1991 film Fried Green Tomatoes, where he held a small, but crucial, role as the abusive husband of Mary-Louise Parker’s character. He then appeared in several other memorable films, such as The Fugitive and The War.

Searcy made his directorial debut in 1997, both helming and acting in the Depression Era film Paradise Falls. Despite being on a limited release, it still earned acclaim in several independent film festivals. From there, he focused on films, with memorable takes in Cast Away, Head of State, Runaway Jury, and more recently, an uncredited role in Eagle Eye.

Searcy also had some degree on success on television. Although he mostly starred in television movies and miniseries such as From the Earth to the Moon, he also held regular roles in some memorable television shows. He was a regular in the acclaimed supernatural drama American Gothic, appearing in 1995 as hapless deputy sheriff Ben Healy. From 1998, he starred in the time-travel series Seven Days, and held a role there until 2001. Most of his subsequent television work were one-off stints in different drama series, save for his work in the comedy series Rodney from 2004. In 2008, he took a role in the short-lived series Easy Money, which was cancelled after only seven episodes. In 2010, he was cast as Deputy Marshall Art Mullen on the FX series Justified.
