The feature No Way Out brought Russom to Los Angeles in 1987. A year later, after starring opposite Carol Burnett in Hostage, he moved to LA permanently to star in NBC's TV101. Emmy nominated for the television film Long Road Home, Russom has continued his theatrical activity in Los Angeles (and Broadway) while establishing himself as a presence in episodic television and feature films. He recently completed shooting on True Grit, his second film with Joel and Ethan Coen.
