Oscar Nominee, Golden Globe Winner (‘Platoon’), Prime Time Emmy Winner (‘Hatfields & McCoys’) Tom Berenger
Since 1977’s “Looking for Mr. Goodbar”, Tom Berenger has been one of the most sought after actors on both the small and big screen. His portrayal of Sgt. Barnes in the hit movie “Platoon” won him the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, along with many other memorable movies such as “Major League” (veteran catcher Jake Taylor), “Sniper” (Thomas Beckett), “Someone to Watch Over Me” (Det.
