In addition to Forrest Gump, Blake has appeared alongside Academy Award Winner Tom Hanks in multiple films. Those performances are part of Blake’s frequent collaborations with such Academy Award winning filmmakers as Robert Zemeckis and Ron Howard (Forrest Gump, Contact, Cast Away, Apollo 13, Edtv, Frost Nixon). Blake’s most critically acclaimed performance was that of the preppy pipe-smoking astrophysicist ‘Fisher’, the right hand man, in the Sci-Fi classic Contact opposite Academy Award winner Jodie Foster.
Blake has well over 100 credits to his name in both television and film. In the 1980’s and early 1990’s, he frequently collaborated with friend and colleague, Emilio Estevez. The two met on the generation defining film Young Guns where Blake portrayed ‘McCloskey’, the Young Gun snitch, opposite Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Dermot Mulroney. Blake would go on to make four more films with Estevez as both an actor and director (Men at Work, Rated X, The War at Home, Nightbreaker). He also worked with other luminary filmmakers such as Ridley & Tony Scott (The Man in the High Castle, Enemy of the State), Paul Mazursky (The Pickle), Frank Darabont (Mob City), Barry Levinson (Wag the Dog), Roland Joffe in Texas Rising and numerous others. In addition, he has appeared in a multitude of Emmy Award winning series, mini-series, and movies for television with prolific content providers such as Steven Bochco, David Milch, Jerry Bruckheimer, Shonda Rhimes, David Shore, Paul Attanosio, Don Bellisario, and Dick Wolf, repeatedly reaching out to Blake to be on their shows.
Workshop is included with a Platinum and Gold membership at ActorPlaybook.
