Trivia and Quotes

    • Michael: "Swamp Thing" in Con Air. In a movie that has so many villains, take a look at my character closely - not that it supports the weight of a careful examination - and you'll see that I don't really get in anyone's face, I don't really kill anyone, I'm not really a bad guy - I'm just a guy who likes to fly. He made the mistake of landing his plane full of controlled substances in the wrong place and finds himself in the system. In terms of bad guys though, the character I played in Breakdown was a very bad human being. There's nothing redeeming about that character.

    • Michael: With a face like this, there aren't a lot of lawyers or priest roles coming my way. I've gotta face that was meant for a mug shot and that's what I've been doing for the past thirty years. If I play a cop, it's always a racist cop, or a trigger-happy cop or a crooked cop - but by and large I play cowboys, bikers, and convicts.

  • This large and ominous fellow is a very talented actor who amazed us all as the creepy yet kindly Tom (Mr. Friendly).

    Standing at over 6 foot with an impressive build and sullen face, this man is tailor made to play either cops or bad guys and he's had the honour of doing both. The latter in the hit series Lost where he plays Tom, better known as Mr. Friendly who is one of "the Others". While he plays a villain in Lost who caged, beat and kidnapped the survivor's, you could sense a likeability about him which made him a difficult person to hate. Gainey's character was shot dead by Sawyer in the final episode of Season 3 which sent out mixed emotions as the Other's had intended on killing the survivors anyway but it'll be sad not to see him in mainstream roles at least not at the moment. M.C Gainey is a wonderful actor and it'll be great to see him reappear on TV and movies.moreless
  • Any actor on LOST is a good one!

    M. C. Gainey (Michael Christopher Gainey) is a great actor on does a great job on LOST as one of the mysterious others.

    He was the first other to appear on the show (except for ethan) and for a long time people thought he was thier leader. M.C has also been in many other televison shows/films and ussually potrays the bad guy (criminals, hillibillies, other) he has also played a cop a few times too. Personally i didn't know the name of m.c before lost but i did recoignise him from somewhere, But now that he does paly on lost i considor him as one of the best actors out there.moreless
