A character actor with a deadpan delivery, Earl Boen is known to many for the role of psychiatrist Peter Silberman in Terminator, a role he reprised for the hit sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, as well as for Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. A veteran of TV, film, and stage, Boen spent decades racking up a résumé packed with literally hundreds of appearances beginning in the early '70s. Many of Boen's credits came in the form of single-episode guest appearances on TV shows like The Paper Chase and M*A*S*H, while others took the form of recurring roles, like that of adman Jim Petersen on the sitcom Who's the Boss?, a role Boen would reprise for five episodes between 1984 and 1986. Boen also worked extensively in animation, lending his voice to cartoons like Justice League, Kim Possible, and Pirates of Dark Water, as well as many video games, such as World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, and EverQuest.
