Who is that Actor: D.W. Moffett

January 11, 2011

For a long time – only due to the name – I assumed D.W. Moffett was this guy, which of course he is not. Oh no. If you’ve got a role for a bureaucrat with pep in his step and a little adultery in his heart you dial up D.W. Moffett. His career has travel the same faux political cabinetry path of such WitA alums as Xander Berkeley and Bill Smithrovich, but with a twist. Moffett, a veritable hottie often is first assumed to be a “good guy” before revealing himself to be a double-dealing turncoat in an inevitable scene deep in the second act of a show, right before the screen goes black for a commercial. In the last week I observed Moffett applying his sublime craft of sinister scene stealing on both 24 and Lie to Me. But don’t go mistaking this Thomas Gibson knockoff as just a one trick TV and Film baddie. Oh, Moffett is so much more.

Stellar work on “Tales From the Crypt”

    I must admit I always get D.W. Moffett mixed up with D.B. Sweeney (the guy from The Cutting Edge). I’ve heard of D.W. Moffett before, but never had a frame of reference for him until now, so this helps!

    So That’s that guys name!!! Love putting a name to the familiar faces( I suppose thats the point of the series). Thank You Snarky. @Popscribblings I am amazed that The Cutting Edge didn’t turn Moira Kelly and DB Sweeney into household names. The movie was so awesomely good, there are there are three sequels.
