He was probably born to play his favorite role to date, “Pancho Villa” in television’s The Adventures Of Young Indiana Jones, produced by George Lucas. With his heavyweight boxer build, this 6’-4” Texan is the spitting image, though taller version, of the Mexican Revolutionary hero. His skills as an actor and with a horse, polished by years of work on the Pro-Celebrity Rodeo circuit, helped Mike to land this prestigious role.
In 1999, Mike worked with the East Los Angeles Classic Theatre on an extremely challenging role as “Sir Toby” in William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, performed at the Ford Anson Theatre.
It may seem ironic that this respected actor and “good guy” was presented with the “Black Hat” award at the Tuolumne County Wild West Film Festival for the best “bad guy” actor carrying on the tradition of playing “the Heavy” roles in western and contemporary films. He has also been presented with the prestigious Alma award for FotoNovelas on PBS.
Mike relaxes in his “spare” time by team-roping in the Pro-Celebrity Rodeo Circuit raising money for children’s charities. He is also a self-taught artist whose paintings are being collected all over the world.
