Xander Berkeley

Character: Percy

Xander Berkeley stars in the new high-octane drama Nikita as Percy, the ruthless head of Division, the secret government agency that Nikita has vowed to bring down. Percy will do anything to protect Division, including destroying Nikita.

Berkeley made his screen debut in 1981 in Mommie Dearest, with Faye Dunaway, starring as Christopher Crawford. Now, almost 100 films later, Berkeley still feels like the same kid in a candy shop when it comes to putting on the costume and becoming someone else. Berkeley's skill as a makeup artist has also come in handy; it helped him transform himself to land the role of drug dealer Bower Snax in Alex Cox's Sid and Nancy, starring opposite Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb.

Berkeley's lengthy resume varies from huge blockbusters likeTerminator 2: Judgment Day, Apollo 13 and A Few Good Men to smaller independent films like Safe, opposite Julianne Moore, andCandyman, opposite Virginia Madsen. Select film credits include the recent Kick-Ass, with Nikita co-star Lyndsy Fonseca; Air Force One, with Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Glenn Close; Amistad, with Anthony Hopkins and Djimon Hounsou; and A Few Good Men, with Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore and Kevin Bacon and Keifer Sutherland.

Berkeley also starred opposite Sutherland on the hit series 24, in which he had the recurring role of George Mason. Other television credits include guest starring roles on The Closer, The Mentalist, Boston Legal, Bones, CSI and Law & Order, among many others.

Berkeley will next be seen in the upcoming films The Hungry Rabbit Jumps, starring Nicolas Cage, and Faster, starring Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton.
