Profile Bio Text
Keith Ian Carradine (born August 8, 1949) is an American actor who has had success on stage, film and television. In addition, he is a Golden Globe and Oscar winning songwriter. As a member of the Carradine family, he is part of an acting dynasty that began with his father, John Carradine. Keith Carradine was born in San Mateo, California. He is the son of actress, and artist, Sonia Sorel (née Henius) and actor John Carradine. His paternal half-brothers are Bruce Carradine and the late David Carradine. His maternal half-brother is Michael Bowen, and his full brothers are Christopher and Robert Carradine.
Carradine`s first notable film appearance was in director Robert Altman`s McCabe & Mrs. Miller, in 1971. He went on to play one of the principal characters, a callow, womanizing folk singer, in Altman`s critically acclaimed 1975 movie, Nashville (See "Music and song writing"). In 1977, Carradine starred opposite Harvey Keitel in Ridley Scott`s The Duellists. He has also acted in several offbeat films of Altman`s protégé Alan Rudolph, playing a disarmingly candid madman in Choose Me (1984), an incompetent petty criminal in Trouble in Mind (1985), and an American artist in 1930s Paris in The Moderns (1988). Other works include Emperor of the North Pole (1973), Pretty Baby (1978). He also appeared with his brothers David and Robert as the Younger brothers in Walter Hill`s 1980 film, The Long Riders. Keith played Jim Younger in that film. In 1981, he appeared again under Hill`s direction in Southern Comfort. In 1994, he had a cameo role as Will Rogers in Rudolph`s 1994 film about Dorothy Parker, Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle. He co-starred with Daryl Hannah as homicidal sociopath John Netherwood in the 1995 thriller The Tie That Binds.
Carradine`s daughter by actress Shelley Plimpton is Martha Plimpton, who was conceived when her parents appeared together in the Broadway musical Hair. He has two children by his ex-wife, Sandra Will Carradine, (married 6 February 1982, separated 1993): Cade Richmond Carradine, (born July 19, 1982) and Sorel Johannah Carradine (born June 18, 1985). In 2006, Sandra Will Carradine was convicted on two counts of perjury for lying to a grand jury about her involvement in the Anthony Pellicano wire tap scandal. Sandra hired and then became romantically involved with Pellicano after her divorce from Keith. According to reports, Pellicano tapped the phone of Keith and companion Hayley DuMond at the request of his girlfriend Sandra, who is now facing ten years in prison. On November 18, 2006, in Torino, Italy, he married actress and long-time girlfriend Hayley DuMond. They met in 1997 when they co-starred in the Burt Reynolds film The Hunter`s Moon. He, along with brothers David, and Robert are direct descendants of Dutch diamond merchant, Killaen van Rensselaer, who settled the province of "Rensselaerwyck, NY", now known as "Albany, NY", via their paternal Grandmother, Genevieve Winifred Richmond. Genevieve Richmond, mother of John Carradine (born "Richmond Reed Carradine), was one of the first female brain surgeons in North America.
