Veteran actor Art Hindle had already established a successful career in finance when he decided to try his hand at acting. He'd always had an interest in the arts and had been involved in local theater since his teens, but it wasn't until he was 21 and working as a stockbroker that he decided to pursue acting full time and relocate with his family to L.A. He began appearing in movies and on TV in the early '70s, showing up in episodes of shows like Starsky & Hutch and Baretta. In addition to starring roles on the short-lived crime drama Kingston Confidential in 1977 and the popular nighttime soap Dallas in 1981, Hindle would largely spend the following decades amassing a long résumé of single-episode appearances, from JAG to Mutant X to Puppets Who Kill. He would also appear in a number of TV movies and feature films and starred in the series Paradise Falls from 2001 to 2008.
