Mini Bio (1)

Athelete-turned-actor, Lynn Williams enjoyed a career that tittered between both television and film. After his time in football, playing for the Los Angeles Rams and later the San Diego Chargers, Lynn made his next move. In 1992, he attended a try-out for American Gladiators and was selected out of the 700 hopeful participants. From that point, Lynn competed on the show under the name "Sabre" and thus appeared on the show for five years, from 1992-1997. During his time on the series, Lynn was voted by fans as the most popular male gladiator. Aside from his success on American Gladiators, Lynn Williams also appeared on other television series such as Family Matters, Babylon 5, Night Man and Sons of Thunder. However he is perhaps better known for his role as Jax in the video game movie sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997). This utilized his physical attributes the best as he did generally all his own stunt work as well as bear the weight of the 40-lb metal arms that the character Jax is known for in the gaming world. He reprised the character in a scarcely-publicized video called Mortal Kombat: Federation of Martial Arts (2000) (V) and ultimately vanished from radar for four years. In 2004, he returned in a movie called Middle Man, and once more disappeared from the movie world, suggesting his retirement. Apart from his sports and acting career, he is also a member of the Constitutional Rights Foundation and the Cancer II Foundation, and spends much of his time giving motivational talks all over the country.
