Until Thirteen Days, Greenwood was best known as the husband-victim-villain in Double Jeopardy with Tommy Lee Jones and Ashley Judd. But his greatest acclaim had come from his work in independent film: as the grieving father in Atom Egoyan's searing The Sweet Hereafter, for which he received a Canadian OscarÂ nomination as Best Actor, and for his star turn in Egoyan's earlier Exotica.
In demand by studios and independent filmmakers, he continues to work for both. In the past few years he has appeared in the features Below, Republic of Love, Ararat (his third film with Egoyan), Swept Away, The Core and Hollywood Homicide.
Greenwood's big break came in the mid-'80s when, as Dr. Seth Griffin in the acclaimed television series St. Elsewhere, he established himself as a leading man. During the next ten years he worked constantly, starring in television movies and series including the short-lived, deeply revered Nowhere Man (1995-96).
