Raymond John Barry (professionally known as Raymond J. Barry) (born March 14, 1939) is an American film, television and stage actor.

Personal life[edit]

Raymond J. Barry, his wife Robyn Mundell, and their children Liam and Manon

Raymond John Barry was born in Hempstead, New York (on Long Island). He has been married to writer Robyn Mundell for the past twenty years. Together they have four children, Oona, Raymond, Liam and Manon.[1]

His father, Raymond Barry, worked in sales.[2][3] His mother, Barbara Constance Barry (née Duffy), was also an actor, known professionally as B. Constance Barry (April 29, 1913 — October 22, 2006). Her breakthrough and final role, in 2001 (when she was 88), after a career of small or cameo appearances in films, was in the film L.I.E., as "Anne Harrigan", the mother of a Long Island pedophile (played by British actor Brian Cox). Barry's mother was of Canadian, Irish, and Swedish descent, and Barry's paternal grandparents from Ireland.

Education[edit]

A three-letter athlete at Lynbrook High School on Long Island, Barry graduated from Brown University in 1962.[4] While there, he earned his degree in Philosophy. Afterwards, he completed the Yale Drama School.

Career[edit]

Before appearing in films he appeared in more than 75 plays. Barry has come to recent fame acting in the movie Interview With the Assassin portraying Walter Ohlinger, a man who claimed to be the second shooter on the Grassy Knoll in the assassination of JFK. Barry may be best known for his role as Ron Kovic's father in the Academy Award winning film Born on the Fourth of July. His latest claim to fame was playing Pa Cox in Walk Hard, in which he was known for his continuous quote, "The wrong kid died!"

Other films in which he appeared include: Dead Man Walking, Cool Runnings, The Tulse Luper Suitcases, Falling Down, and Training Day. He also appeared as Jack Shephard's grandfather in Lost, as Fox Mulder's congressional patron, Senator Richard Matheson, in The X-Files, and as Lilly Rush's father in CBS series Cold Case. He had a recurring role on Justified as Arlo Givens, the father of main character Raylan Givens.
