Supporting and character actor of stage, screen and James Remar specializes in psychopaths and brutes. Remar dropped out of high school to tour in a rock band before studying acting at New York's Neighborhood Playhouse with Sanford Meisner (he later went back and earned his high school diploma), Remar entered films as a street punk in On the Yard (1978), but he was not really noticed until he played Ajax in Walter Hill's The Warriors (1979). He appeared in three more of Hill's films, and made his Broadway debut in 1979 playing a Nazi in Bent. In 1980, Remar appeared in the Windwalker, a native American drama filmed entirely in Crow and Cheyenne. During filming, the Cheyennes gave Remar the honorary title "Standing 20." Remar's career hit a low point in the mid '80s, but in 1989, he re-emerged as a usually villainous character actor.
