African American actor Felton Perry's first film role was an activist in Haskwell Wexler's Medium Cool (1969). During Hollywood's anti-establishment period, Perry tended to be stereotyped in "radical" roles, though he was eventually permitted to expand his range. Among his best-remembered film assignments were the roles of Donald Johnson in the RoboCop films and Detective Dale in 1994's Dumb and Dumber. Felton Perry was also seen on TV as Jimmy in Matt Lincoln (1970) and Inspector Clarence McNeil in Hooperman (1987-89).
