Maxwell Caulfield Biography

Birth Name: Maxwell Caulfield
Born: 11/23/1959
Birth Place: United Kingdom

Caulfield's second film was "Electric Dreams" (1984), a modern-day retelling of "Cyrano de Bergerac". He scored a critical success in the underrated "The Boys Next Door" (1985), in which he and Charlie Sheen portray two bored, alienated California boys who embark on a series of violent escapades. He subsequently appeared in such undistinguished features as "Mind Games" (1989), "Project: Alien" (1990), "Animal Instincts" (1992), "Midnight Witness" (1993) and "No Escape, No Return" (1994). He appeared as Col. Strong Vincent in the epic "Gettysburg" (1993) and offered a wonderfully wicked turn as a self-involved, bubble-gum pop star in Allan Moyle's "Empire Records" (1995).

Caulfield was perfectly cast as bad boy Miles Colby first introduced on the ABC sudser "Dynasty" and then on its spinoff "The Colbys/Dynasty II: The Colbys" (ABC, 1985-87). He reprised the role for the miniseries sequel "Dynasty: The Reunion" (ABC, 1991). Other credits include featured roles in "The Parade" (CBS, 1984) and the CBS miniseries "Judith Krantz's 'Till We Meet Again'" (1989). In 1996, Caulfield joined the cast of the ABC daytime soap opera "All My Children" as the troubled artist Pierce Riley, a role he played until June 1997.
