  • Distinguished, dignified, diverse actor with roots in the Shakesperean stage but dozens of convincing TV appearances.

    9.8
    Joe Ruskin, aka Joe Schlafman, has long been a journeyman actor able to bring a variety of characters to fulfillment on stage and screen. He exudes a dignity and power primarily through his Shakesperean voice, diction and intonation but also his physical presence - having with deeply etched facial features and having been among the tallest actors of his generation.

    Too many of his roles emphasized appearance only but even here he excelled with a special ability to assume semitic and teutonic personae as in his Mission Impossible arabic royalty roles.

    He is an entirely self-made acting success with, at the outset, no friends or relatives in any way associated with the industry.moreless
