BIO

This versatile, underused American character actor has struggled to find good, high-profile roles, but has delivered a string of brilliant supporting performances often with very little screen-time. With his anything but glamorous features, Scheine has embodied a host of different types, rarely normal ones. Apt at playing offbeat characters, Scheine profits from his combination of arrogant and sleazy looks as well as the not too Hollywoodish willingness to present himself unfavourably. In his best villain roles, Scheine provides many of the same qualities as Gary Oldman. After a fine stint of form in the mid-90s (notably in films such as Ace Ventura and The War), Scheine was back to form with a diminutive but potent role in Duncan Tucker's Transamerica as well as a part in Terrence Malick's The New World in 2005.

 

TRIVIA

  • Information on Raynor Scheine is very hard to find. I have even struggled finding his date of birth. If someone has information about him, please let me know.
  • Anyone should see Jon Avnet's The War, if nothing else than for Christine Baranski's wonderfully over-the-top teacher and Raynor Scheine's ditto bum father
  • Raynor Scheine might have the most fantastic screenname in history. Try pronouncing his name ("rain or shine").
  • He was raised in Emporia, Virginia, and graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University. He was tech support for the Lost Colony outdoor drama in 1967.
