Kurtwood Smith



BirthdateKurtwood Larson Smith
Birthdate 3-Jul-1943
Birthplace New Lisbon, WI


Kurtwood Smith says strangers often approach him on the street, pleading to be called a dumb-ass as only Smith can utter the insult. "Dumb-ass" became his catch phrase in eight seasons as the paternally gruff Reginald "Red" Forman on That '70s Show. He was offered the role because the producers wanted a no-nonsense, Chuck Norris type, and Norris himself turned it down. He says his performance was inspired by his own stepfather, who died just as That '70s Show first went into production.

Smith was an infant when his real father, a fighter pilot in World War II, died after being shot down on a bombing run over Germany. His mother wanted to name him Kurt, but she added the extra 'wood' because she thought the name 'Kurt Smith' sounded too curt and insignificant. Smith suspects he is the world's only Kurtwood.

He was a longtime character actor before his sitcom success, usually playing cops, crooks, and other tough guys. On TV, he played the coldhearted Capt Joseph Scanlon on the mid-1980s undercover cop show Renegades with Patrick Swayze and Tracy Scoggins. In the late-80s New Adventures of Beans Baxter, Smith played the sinister mastermind who perpetually threatened the teenage spy Beans. In a funny but short-lived 1993 sitcom about a Hawaiian surf shop, Big Wave Dave's with David Morse and Jane Kaczmarek, Smith played a wacky freeloader who improbably claimed to be Hawaii Five-O's Jack Lord. He also provides the voice of Andy's father on Squirrel Boy. Fans of Star Trek know Smith as the Cardassian Thrax on Deep Space Nine, the time traveler Annorax on Voyager, and the President of the Federation in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

In his best-remembered movie roles, he played John Travolta's choreographer in Staying Alive, the sadistic second-string bad-guy who worked for Ronny Cox in RoboCop, Robert Sean Leonard's domineering father in Dead Poets Society, Nicole Kidman's clueless father in To Die For, the Secretary of Defense in Travolta's Broken Arrow, and one of Winona Ryder's several psychiatrists in Girl, Interrupted. In his quintessential film performance, he played the cruel warden of a privatized prison in Fortress with Christopher Lambert, and he took a rare leading role in Hard Scrambled, an independent drama where his thuggish character wants control of a run-down diner.

Smith's wife is actress Joan Pirkle. They both worked on Robocop, where she played Cox's secretary, and Smith's character made a pass at her. Off-camera, Smith and Pirkle are longtime activists for single-payer universal health care.

Trivia
Parents George Smith and Mabel Annette Lund
Marriages Joan Pirkle (actress/activist, m. 5-Nov-1988)
Cecilia Souza (m. 10-Jun-1964, div. 1974, one son, one daughter)
Children Shannon Smith (radio personality "Dr Sauce") and Laurel Smith

Nah, this thread title is cute .

I watched Donna Dates A Kelso last night, and I love Red when he's in the corvette making engine noises pretending he's driving with his imaginary passenger. It's so un-Red like . The buying of it out from under Bob however is more his style.

Other unlike-Red moments: Enjoying the shoe Bob gave him, reading Kitty's dirty books... what else is there? I forgot.

I like the title, so it's fine

Nah I think those moments are VERY Red, it's just the side of him most people don't get to see because only his favorite girl in the world can bring it out in him.

OT but ally I love your MP icons and totally agree 100% with your sig.

The Red/Kitty stuff is the best part of this episode Imo.

OT..quite, but thank you, Kryssi! I agree, 100% too!!!

Now.. Red making car noises was totally un-Red like, You don't see that so often. Rarely happens. But it was so cute.

Ah okay, well that's always good! I was watching The Kids Are Alright (or the one after I forget) but it was when the doctor gave them the thing with all the food they shouldn't have and Kitty was agreeing with it all and then Eric said "alcoholic beverages" and Kitty grabs it and as in like "OH THAT DOCTOR IS A QUACK", haha, hilarious!
