Tom Noonan (born April 12, 1951) is an American actor, director, and screenwriter, perhaps best known for his role in the popular Michael Mann film Manhunter.
Noonan was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, the son of Rosaleen and Tom Noonan, who worked as a dentist and jazz musician respectively. He has an older brother, John Ford Noonan, a playwright, and two sisters, Barbara and Nancy.
Noonan started working in theatre (appearing in the original Off-Broadway production Sam Shepard's play Buried Child), but in the 1980s he began working in film. At 6 feet, 7 inches (200 cm), Noonan's imposing presence is probably responsible for his tendency to be cast as menacing villains, as in RoboCop 2, Last Action Hero, Manhunter, and The Pledge. His height was used for comic effect in "The Moving Finger," the series finale of the horror anthology Monsters (several episodes of which he also directed and wrote)...
