He made his big screen debut in Billy Bob Thornton's acclaimed, Academy Award winning film, Sling Blade (also appearing in the original short film, They Call It A Sling Blade). He reunited with Thornton (with whom he has worked six times) in Oliver Stone's U-Turn, Madison John Badham's HBO western, The Jack Bull. He was recently seen in the Farrelly Bros.' comedy, Say It Isn't So and in Renny Harlin's action film, Driven.
Briscoe's own original screenplay, Waking Up in Reno (co-authored with partner Mark Fauser) will be released in February through Miramax Films. He also co-scripted the CableACE-winning Showtime drama, Right to Remain Silent and spent a year as a staff writer on the CBS sitcom, Evening Shade. During the show's final season (1993-94), Briscoe and Fauser landed two produced teleplays for the comedy show. Briscoe even wrote a recurring part for himself, one of several he has played on television. Other small-screen credits include the pilot for ABC's Maximum Bob, HBO's popular Tracey Takes On, a guest stint on ER and the pilot for the CBS sitcom, Hearts Afire (again with Thornton).
Briscoe's theatre credits include Arsenic and Old Lace at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Florida; Eleven Zulu at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., The Foreigner at the South of Broadway Theater in Miami and the National Touring Company production of Greater Tuna in both Los Angeles and Chicago. Briscoe has also worked extensively at the Missouri Summer Rep in such productions as Bus Stop, She Stoops to Conquer and South Pacific, among others. Briscoe grew up in Moberly, Missouri, and studied theatre arts at the University of Missouri.
