Max Perlich

Description[from Freebase]

Max Perlich (born March 28, 1968) is an American film and television actor. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio. His mother was a teacher and his father, Martin Perlich, a writer and radio programming director and announcer, worked for a time with the Cleveland Orchestra. The Perlich family moved to Los Angeles, California when Max was four. He is left-handed. Perlich's career began with a small part in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which came after he had dropped out of high school in the 10th grade. Thus began his appearances in a series of bit parts on television and in teen films such as Can't Buy Me Love (1987), Plain Clothes (1988) and Lost Angels (1989). His roles usually were of the slacker or juvenile delinquent variety. As he outgrew the teen genre, his later performances, although still minor, were distinguished by eccentricity and twitchy, nervous energy, fully realized in the films Gleaming the Cube (1989) and Drugstore Cowboy (1989). He has appeared in supporting roles in films such as Rush (1991), Cliffhanger (1993), Maverick (1994), Georgia (1995), Blow (2001) and The Missing (2003).
