Biography

Best known for his roles Kirk Morris and Jack Farrell, with his sharp, raspy nasal voice, sneering smile and fierce look, Burns has made himself really an actor to watch. He was drawn to acting late in college. After graduating, he re-established himself in New York and landed the title role of Don Juan at the New York Shakespeare Festival. He made his official TV debut in a small role in ABC Afterschool Specials (1972) ( Moms on Strike (1984)). He got memorable recurring roles as felons, like the pathological rapist James Fitzsimmons in several episodes of the NBC drama series Hill Street Blues (1981) and body collector Breugel on Max Headroom (1987).
