Crispin Glover got his start as an actor back in the early 80s. During the fledgling days of his career, he performed in roles like the young George McFly in “Back to the Future” and Howdy in “Twister.” He also had brief stints on multiple classic sitcoms, including “Family Ties,” “Happy Days,” and “The Facts of Life.”
In 2007, he appeared on screen as Grendel, but he was by no means finished with his illustrious and prolific career. Glover continued to build on past momentum in multiple movie genres. He added to his voice-acting accolades in roles like #6 in the Tim Burton-overtoned “9” and Fifi in “Open Season 3.” He also continued his comedic career as Phil in “Hot Tub Time Machine.”
More recently, he played the recurring character of Mr. World in “American Gods,” and in 2022, he appeared in Guillermo del Toro’s “Cabinet of Curiosities” as Richard Upton Pickman. Glover is also set to star as the titular character in the upcoming mystery drama “Mr. K.” A man of many skills, the actor behind the Grendel persona continues to hone his career across the acting landscape.
