Mike Moroff

Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, Mike Moroff has acted in over 40 films, including 17 Mexican productions, and numerous television productions. His credits include everything from La Bamba to Death Wish IV to Robocop to Desperado. He's played Oso in Born in East L.A., Ortego in Scarface, and Santos in Night of The Living Dead III. More recently, he's graced the silver screen with his portrayals in The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit, The Crew, and the independent film Knockout.

Beginning his career in Mexico, Moroff acted in film productions with Jorge Rivero, Andres Garcia and Jorge Russek, among others. It was on the production of Cattle Annie & Little Britches that Mike was advised by actor Rod Steiger to move to Hollywood.

He was probably born to play his favorite role, that of Pancho Villa in television's Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, produced by George Lucas. With his heavyweight boxer build, this 6' 4" Texan is the spitting image (though a bit taller) of the Mexican revolutionary hero.

In 1999, Mike worked with director Tony Plana of the East Los Angeles Classic Theater on the extremely challenging role of 'Sir Toby' in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, performed at the Ford Anson Theater.
