About Tom Skerritt (1933 – )
Tom Skerritt is an American leading and supporting actor, with rugged good looks and a versatile talent, who came to his biggest fame on television, though he has been in many fine films and has tried his hand at directing as well.

Tom Skerritt attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and UCLA in Los Angeles and was first noticed as an actor in UCLA's production of The Rainmaker. His debut movie was War Hunt, in 1962. Throughout the '60s, Tom Skerritt found regular gigs doing guest spots on various T.V. shows.

Skerritt's big break in film happened when he was cast, along with Donald Sutherland and Elliot Gould as doctors in Robert Altman's biting satire MASH. Several other film roles quickly followed. Tom Skerritt then landed the plum role of Capt. Dallas in ALIEN.
