William Kirk Baltz (born September 14, 1959) is an American actor, perhaps best known for portraying Officer Marvin Nash in Reservoir Dogs (1992).
Life and career
Baltz was born in New York City, New York. He is best known for his role as Officer Marvin Nash, an LAPD police officer in the famous torture scene of the 1992 Quentin Tarantino film Reservoir Dogs. Baltz also starred in another film written by Tarantino, 1994's Natural Born Killers, as Roger. His other film credits include the 1990 drama film Dances With Wolves, the 1997 action film Face/Off and the 1998 political satire Bulworth.
Baltz has appeared in many made-for-television films, and starred in the 1999 miniseries To Serve and Protect. He starred in the short-lived 1992 television series Human Target, and played sinister stalker Steve Roth in The Marla Hanson Story (1991).
He has made guest appearances on shows including Will and Grace, NYPD Blue, Seven Days, The Shield, 24, and Without a Trace. Baltz has been the only actor to portray the Batman villain Clayface in live-action: he portrayed the character in the short-lived series Birds of Prey.
With a firm grounding in both The Meisner Technique and Method (the latter through his lengthy apprenticeship with Strasberg disciple Sandra Seacat), Baltz operates an acting school in Los Angeles, California.
