Happy birthday Marc Singer, born January 29, 1948.
Before the height of his career, Singer appeared in the sequel to the miniseries Roots as Col. Warner’s elder son Andy. Singer has appeared in several fantasy adventure films and series, such as The Beastmaster and its sequels, in which he played the title role, and as Mike Donovan in the 1983 miniseries V, the 1984 sequel V: The Final Battle, and the TV series V: The Series.
Other roles include the 1982 film If You Could See What I Hear (where he portrayed blind musician Tom Sullivan), Body Chemistry, Something for Joey (as football star John Cappelletti), Watchers II, High Desert Kill, The Fighter, Go Tell the Spartans and Dead Space, as well as General Klaus Von Kraut in A Man Called Sarge.
Singer voiced the character of Man-Bat on Batman: The Animated Series. He has guest-starred on television series, such as Dallas, The Twilight Zone, The Hitchhiker, Murder, She Wrote, The Young and the Restless, The Ray Bradbury Theater and Highlander: The Series.
Singer is active in theater and played Petruchio in the American Conservatory Theatre (A.C.T.) production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, as well as Christian in Cyrano de Bergerac. Both Taming of the Shrew and Cyrano were filmed.
Singer was the first choice for the role of Connor MacLeod in Highlander, but he turned it down because of his commitment on V: The Series. He was also the first choice for the role of Whistler in Blade.
Singer appeared in the last episode of Season 2 of the new version of V, airing on March 15, 2011, however, instead of reprising his role of Mike Donovan, he plays a new character called Lars Tremont. He played a recurring role as General Matthew Shrieve on The CW’s television series Arrow’s third season.
