American leading man Craig Sheffer was first seen on a nationwide basis on the TV-serial circuit. He played Ian Hayden on the ABC daytime drama One Life to Live, and was cast as the teenaged son of Michael Goodwin and Leigh-Taylor Young on the 1983 prime time serial The Hamptons. Sheffer's earliest starring assignment in films was as the best friend of troubled teenager Emilio Estevez in That Was Then...This Is Now (1985). Among Craig Sheffer's more recent films are A River Runs Through It (1992) (in which he played the older brother of Brad Pitt), Fire in the Sky (1993), and Sleep With Me (1994) (top-billed, as the apex of a romantic triangle which included Eric Stoltz and Meg Tilly). He remained a steadily-working actor, often in indie films. His credits include A Season in Purgatory, Flypaper, and Miss Evers' Boys. In the 21st century he could be seen in Maze, Deep Core, and Killer Buzz before landing the role of Keith Scott on the television series One Tree Hill. In 2007 Sheffer wrote and directed the ensemble comedy American Crude. He starred in the 2008 thriller While She Was Out, and in 2012 he was the lead in Clive Barker's Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut.
