Dennis Boutsikaris


Character actor Dennis Boutsikaris is a frequent television guest star and leading man in made-for-TV movies. After a few fairly small roles in the feature films Crocodile Dundee II and The Dream Team, Boutsikaris was launched into star status on many sentimental Lifetime original movies, including And Then There Was One and Chasing the Dragon. Although he has had regular roles on Stat, The Jackie Thomas Show, and Misery Loves Company, he may be more recognizable for his recurring guest appearances on Law & Order and ER. He's also appeared in straight-to-video releases (The Three Lives of Karen) and TV miniseries (The Last Don). In addition, he seems to have made a lucrative living on the side as a voice actor recording books on tape. Boutsikaris has been known to specialize in ripped-from-the-headlines style of TV docudramas such as Victim of Love: The Shannon Mohr Story, Love and Betrayal: The Mia Farrow Story (in the role of Woody Allen, no less), and Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, a dramatization about the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation.
