Actors & Skin: Scott Glenn

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

I was still in high school when I first saw The Silence Of The Lambs. I still remember when the credits started to role. Myself, and pretty much the entire audience were stuck to our seats, still in state of shock from what we had seen. Although I had certainly seen many horror films, Lambs went to levels not many mainstream movies had gone before.

I don't really remember paying much attention to Scott Glenn (Jack Crawford) during that first viewing, but as I got older, I certainly paid more attention to the character, and the actor. Glenn has a sex appeal that took me awhile to appreciate, but now that I have, it is impossible to ignore. Glenn has been working in some of the industries biggest movies since the 70's and I most recently noticed him playing Justin Theroux's father on HBO's The Leftovers. At 75, he hasn't lost his appeal.

Researching Glenn's nude scenes wasn't easy, there were sadly not very many. I couldn't put my hands on a copy of the 1970 flick The Baby Maker, which appears to be his first nude scene on film. Although he did have a few more, I think the images below encapsulate pretty all of Glenn's nude scenes. If anyone knows of more, just let me know!
