Early life[edit]

Currie was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to American parents on September 25, 1965. One of his first or breakthrough roles was playing Officer Palone on 21 Jump Street (1987). In 1991, after a couple years working in locally shot TV and film in Vancouver, he moved to Los Angeles to study acting; his first roommate was Brad Pitt.[1]

Career[edit]

Currie rented a two bedroom flat off Melrose Avenue in California, where he lived for two years with roommate Brad Pitt. He worked for a while as a Ronald McDonald clown before moving on to roles on television and film, including two roles on Beverly Hills, 90210, playing both Bobby Walsh, Brandon's (Jason Priestley) and Brenda's (Shannen Doherty) wheelchair-using cousin, and the role of Danny Five, Colin's (Jason Wiles) cocaine dealer. In 1987, he received one of his first roles as Officer Palone on the series 21 Jump Street, episode "Two for the Road". He played in Vancouver television and film roles, as well as roles in the Joel Schumacher film Cousins, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, The Terror Within II, Puppet Master 4, Puppet Master 5: The Final Chapter, and My Blue Heaven (starring Steve Martin, Rick Moranis and Joan Cusack) before making the move to Los Angeles in 1991. Two years later, he had a supporting role in the Alive (1993 film)

His most prominent role has been that of Nicolae Carpathia in the series of films Left Behind, based on the series of best-selling books by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. His character, Nicolae Carpathia, is the Antichrist, who attempts to marshal the forces of the Global Community against the followers of Christ.
