Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Actor. (b. May 17, 1955, Fort Worth, Tex.) Energetic actor who has appeared in a number of movies both major and minor, who after 10 years onscreen gained recognition for his performance as Sheriff Dale "Hurricane" Dixon in the "sleeper" One False Move (1992). Paxton began as a set dresser on several B movies (starting with Roger Corman's Big Bad Mama), then studied acting and earned roles in the low-budget Mortuary (1981) and Night Warning (1982). He then scored parts in such grade-A fare as The Lords of Discipline (1983), Streets of Fire and The Terminator (both 1984), and received critical notice as the obnoxious brother in Weird Science (1985), and as the hysterical soldier Hudson in Aliens (1986). Paxton was featured in the vampire film Near Dark (1987), as well as Pass the Ammo (1988), Next of Kin (1989), Predator 2, Navy SEALS (both 1990), The Dark Backward (1991), Trespass (1992), Boxing Helena, Indian Summer, Tombstone (all 1993), True Lies Monolith (both 1994), and Apollo 13 (1995). He also directed the video for the cult song "Fish Heads."
