Mini Bio (1)
Mike Muscat was an Army brat born in Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, and lived on or near several army bases growing up. His family settled in Gastonia, North Carolina, where he was bitten by the acting bug in a high-school drama class. He fell in love with it and knew that he wanted to be an actor when he grew up. While he never "grew up", he did pursue acting.
After several years of doing community theatre and even acting in a couple of low-budget movies filmed near Charlotte, North Carolina, he joined the Army. His job title was "Entertainment Specialist" and he worked at the Little Theatre in Ft. Rucker, Alabama. His duties included everything from building sets and lighting to acting in, directing and writing some of the skits and plays that were performed.
After the army Mike moved to Hollywood. His first big break was on the stage. He was cast as a resident actor in the L.A. Shakespeare Festival, which was an Equity company. He acted in five productions during the year he was with them. Later, he was a resident actor at The Universal Studios Tour in Hollywood where, for two years, he starred in "Castle Dracula", a stage show for visiting tourists.
Over the past three decades Mike has built a career in film and TV, working on many front-rank projects. He has also worked behind the cameras as an on-set Acting Coach on several films including Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) (many of these films are listed along with most of his acting work on his IMDb page).
In between acting jobs, Mike works as a professional magician and balloon artist at large events and private parties, coaches actors and has written many magazine articles (mostly about skydiving) and several scripts.
He is a father and grandfather. He has one son and two grandsons. Mike Jr. is an accomplished martial arts instructor for Ryan Hoover Extreme Karate in Gastonia, NC. Mike Sr. is known as "Pappy" to his grandsons, Gabriel and Silas.
