Peter Greene (born Peter Green; May 10, 1965) is an American character actor, best known for his performances in The Mask, Pulp Fiction and Clean, Shaven.

Biography

Early life
A native of Montclair, New Jersey, from an Irish Catholic family, Greene did not pursue a career in acting until his mid 20s. He initially landed several roles in cinema and television in the early 1990s.


Film career
Greene's breakthrough came in 1994–1995 with roles in Pulp Fiction; The Mask; Clean, Shaven; and The Usual Suspects. Greene is possibly best remembered for his role in Pulp Fiction, as Zed who rapes Marsellus Wallace. The Mask saw him play the villainous Dorian Tyrell opposite Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz. Greene's arguably most accomplished role was that of schizophrenic Peter Winter in Clean, Shaven. The Usual Suspects saw him play the small but memorable character, Redfoot. Greene often plays villains such as in Judgment Night, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, Training Day (as a corrupt narcotics officer) and martial arts/crime film Fist of the Warrior (opposite Ho-Sung Pak, Roger Guenveur Smith and Sherilyn Fenn).

He worked with one director, Jordan Alan, twice: once on the film Kiss and Tell, a dark comic turn for the actor and then again 4 years later in The Gentleman Bandit (aka Gentleman B). After Greene's arrests in 1998 for drug related crimes, Alan had to put the actor through rehab to get him through the second film and eventually, after coming upon Greene doing heroin with Mike Starr, he was forced to replace Greene's voice because of the vocal problems caused by drugs. Despite these problems, Mr. Alan vouched for Greene to producer Tobe Jaffe for the movie Blue Streak, in which Greene played Martin Lawrence's nemesis.

Greene has continued to work mostly as a character actor. He appeared in the short-lived television drama The Black Donnellys. He also appeared as a policeman in Prodigy of Mobb Deep's video for "A,B,C's", as well as the focal character in House of Pain's video for "Fed Up". Greene recently appeared in the opening scene of the premiere of the FX series Justified.
