Berkeley made his screen debut in Mommie Dearest as Christopher Crawford. Now, almost 100 films later, he still feels like the same kid in a candy shop when it comes to putting on the costume and becoming someone else. Berkeley's skill as a make-up artist helped him transform himself and land the role of drug dealer Bower Snax in Sid and Nancy in 1985.
Berkeley's resume varies from huge blockbusters like Terminator 2, Apollo 13 and A Few Good Men, to smaller independent films like Safe, opposite Julianne Moore, and Candyman opposite Virginia Madsen. His other film credits include Kick-Ass, Air Force One and Amistad. Berkeley will next be seen in the upcoming films The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, starring Nicolas Cage, and Faster, starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton.
Television credits include a recurring role on 24 and guest starring roles on The Closer, The Mentalist, Boston Legal, Bones, CSI and Law & Order.
