Terry Kinney Career


Kinney has been active in theatre since 1974, when he, Gary Sinise, and Jeff Perry founded the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Kinney had to describe the company's groundbreaking use of cinematic methods, such as accelerated time, extensive soundtracks, and the rough equivalent of dissolves and bleeds.

He has produced several plays (see below) and appeared in several others. He appeared in the Drama Desk Award-winning play Balm in Gilead by Lanford Wilson in 1985. In 1996, Kinney appeared in the Sam Shepard play Buried Child, directed by Gary Sinise in New York City. During a Buried Child Kinney performance, he suffered with a "terrible, horrific, screaming panic attack" and stayed offstage for several years, only to return in 2002 in a performance with Kurt Elling entitled Petty Delusions and Grand Obsessions. Well Appointed Room was directed by Richard Greenberg in 2006, and Neil Labute's reasons to be optimistic in 2009. Lanford Wilson directed another Lanford Wilson performance, both in July and August, as well as the Williamstown Theatre Festival (August).

Checkers was a new performance directed by Douglas McGrath at the Vineyard Theatre in New York City in October–November 2012. Lyle Kessler's latest play Collision appeared at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater in January 2013.

Kinney has done a lot of acting, most for television, beginning in 1986 with an appearance in Miami Vice. He appeared in the CBS miniseries Murder Ordained opposite JoBeth Williams in 1987. On HBO's prison drama Oz, he is perhaps best known for his portrayal of the idealistic unit manager Tim McManus.

In 1995, Kinney co-starred with Tommy Lee Jones in an Elmer Kelton western story titled The Good Old Boys. This made-for-TV film by Tommy Lee Jones, co-starring Sissy Spacek, Matt Damon, Sam Shepard, Wilford Brimley, and former Texas Ranger H. Joaquin Jackson.

In 1999 and 2002, Kinney directed two episodes of Oz, "Cruel and Unusual Punishments" in 1999 and "Wheel of Fortune." "It was awesome preparation for shooting on a tight budget, on a time crunch," he said.

His film work includes a role in the 1988 film Miles From Home, which starred many cast members of Steppenwolf and was directed by Sinise. He appeared in Todd Carter's film In 1995, he played mayoral candidate Todd Carter in Carl Franklin's film Devil in a Blue Dress. Kinney played Uncle David in the popular new-of-age film Fly Away Home, which took place in 1996. Kinney played the lead in the indie film The Young Girl and the Monsoon (1999), about Hank, a 39-year-old photojournalist struggling with a demanding schedule and a growing child. In the film Save the Last Dance, Sara Johnson (Julia Stiles) played the protagonist's estranged father.

Kinney produced Kubu Rides (This Is It), a short film (18 minutes) that portrayed the consequences of a mother's heroin use as seen by her teenage son in 2006. Larry Brown's short story is based on the film's short story. It's the first film made by Steppenwolf Films. He produced Diminished Capacity, a large Steppenwolf film based on the Sherwood Kiraly novel of that name in 2008.

Kinney was Deputy Attorney General Zach Williams in Canterbury's Law, a short-lived Fox series, on television. He appeared in Sergeant Harvey Brown's ABC series The Unusuals in 2009, and in the same year, he appeared as Special Agent Sam Bosco on the hit CBS series The Mentalist.

Dylan Walsh, portrayed As ATF Agent Donovan with Kinney as a complicated criminal that Donovan is hunting, appeared on ATF Agent Donovan with Kinney as a complicated criminal. The series was supposed to be based on Robert Gregory Browne's book "Kiss Her Goodbye." (Browne said the show was tentatively named "ATF.") Kinney appeared in the North American version of Being Human as Heggemann, a 1,100-year-old Dutch vampire, in 2011. He appeared in the CBS police procedural drama NYC 22 as Field Training Officer Daniel "Yoda" Dean in April 2012. However, after four episodes, NYC 22 was canceled. In the new Fox drama The Mob Doctor, which premiered in September 2012, Kinney also starred Salvatore Amato, a member of a Chicago criminal family.

Kinney was cast as a series regular on ABC drama series Black Box opposite Kelly Reilly and Vanessa Redgrave, and it will air on ABC in 2014.

Kinney has appeared in Hall, a recurring character in Billions' TV series. Terry was cast in the Shonda Rhimes mini-series Inventing Anna with Julia Garner, Laverne Cox, and Anna Chlumsky in 2019. Anna Sorokin, the Instagram-famous scam artist, premiered on Netflix in 2022.
