Scott Glenn stars in "Sucker Punch" as The Wiseman. The fantasy action film, from writer/director Zack Snyder ("300," "Watchmen") co-stars Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino and Emily Browning.

Scott Glenn was born January 26, 1941, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As he grew up in Appalachia, his health was poor; he was bedridden for a year and doctors predicted he would limp for the rest of his life. During long periods of illness, Glenn was reading a lot and "dreaming of becoming Lord Byron." He challenged

his illness through intense training programs and eventually got rid of his limp.

Glenn entered William and Mary College where he majored in English. He spent three years in the Marines and then tried to combine his passion for storytelling with his passion for adventures by working for five months as a criminal reporter at the Kenosha Evening News. In 1966, he headed to New York where he joined George Morrison acting class. He helped in directing student plays to pay for his studies and appeared onstage in La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club productions. Soon after arriving to New York, Glenn became a fan of martial arts. In 1968 he joined The Actors Studio and began working in professional theater and TV. In 1970 James Bridges offered him his first movie work in "The Baby Maker."

Following this, Glenn spent several years in Los Angeles as a struggling actor, working with great directors like Jonathan Demme and Francis Ford Coppola, but barely making a living. This changed in 1980, when James Bridges offered Glenn the role of John Travolta's rival in "Urban Cowboy." This performance catapulted him into the next level of stardom, and Glenn has worked consistently since, appearing in a huge range of films and TV shows.

Some of his most notable film credits include "The Right Stuff," "Silverado," "Silence of the Lambs," and "The Hunt for Red October" and "Courage Under Fire." More recently, Glenn has appeared in Oliver Stone's "W.," "The Bourne Ultimatum," "Freedom Writers," "The Shipping News" and "Secretariat," opposite Diane Lane.
