Michael Bailey Smith Appears on The American Perspective with Judyth Piazza
Michael was an Air Force brat, who traveled the world and ended up graduating High School in Tehran, Iran. Michael then became a paratrooper in the elite 82nd Airborne Division. After his service in military, Michael attended college at Eastern Michigan University and walked-on to the football team.
Four years later, his athletic talents earned him a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys. After a career ending knee injury, Michael fell into acting going to an audition with a friend for NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET - PART V. Michael won the role of ˜Super Freddy` and fell in love with acting.
Michael has since worked on over 40 films and 80 episodes of television including recurring roles on NASH BRIDGES as ˜Iron Mike Willis`, ˜Captain Brennamen` in the Sci-Fi series SEVEN DAYS and the evil ˜Balthazor` on the WB Series CHARMED. Michael can be seen in films such as Walter Hill`s UNDISPUTED opposite Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames, MEN IN BLACK II with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, IN HELL with Jean-Claude Van Damme and MASTER OF DISGUISE with Dana Carvey.
Michael`s talents also garnered him the Fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Award for his terrifying performance as Pluto in Alexandre Aja`s remake of THE HILLS HAVE EYES and in the sequel, THE HILLS HAVE EYES II. Applying his creative talents to writing, Michael has had several of his screenplays optioned with one going in front of the cameras in 2012.
