Born: July 9, 1951 in Kansas City, Missouri, USA

Married to: Marianne Leone (1983 – present) (1 child)

Said he was afraid of taking the role in American Beauty (1999); his wife convinced him to take the role of the repressed soldier.

His parents were from Texas. His mother, Mary Ann (Walton), was a homemaker, and his father, Charles Sherwood Cooper, was an internist who served as a doctor in the US Air Force, and a cattleman.
