Early life and education[edit]

Boone was born Mark Heidrich in Cincinnati, Ohio to Ginny, a retired teacher, and Bob Heidrich, a former construction consultant. He grew up on Chicago's North Shore and attended the University of Vermont.[1] He moved to New York after college, where he started his career performing stand-up comedy with long-time friend Steve Buscemi. His stage name Boone came from a New York City war memorial.[1]

Career[edit]

He has appeared in some of Steve Buscemi's directorial work, including Trees Lounge and most recently (2004) as "Evil" in Lonesome Jim. He is a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy, where he plays Bobby Munson. In 2010 he played the role of Vincent Dooly's father in The Mother of Invention.

Boone frequently portrays a crooked cop or other authority figure, and has had a prolific career, appearing in over 70 movies, which also include 2 Fast 2 Furious, Get Carter, The General's Daughter, The Thin Red Line, Seven, and Die Hard 2. He has also made guest appearances on TV in Law & Order, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and several other shows.

He had a one-second appearance as "New York Guy" in Armageddon when Eddie Griffin's character asked him what the news on TV was all about. He also had another one-second appearance in Season 6 Episode 5 of Oz as a prisoner reading a book in the library. In 1984 he acted in The Way It Is (1985) by Eric Mitchell, which included actors Steve Buscemi and Rockets Redglare.[citation needed]
