When Did Mark Margolis Start His Career?
Margolis scored an uncredited role in his film debut, Report to the Commissioner, in 1975. The role led him to land on more projects, including The Opening of Misty Beethoven, Short Eyes, The Other Side of Victory, Street Cop and Rage of Angels to name a few.
Margolis joined the Breaking Bad team in 2009; What he thought to be a one-episode appearance in the second season became a permanent role.
"I was only coming onto Breaking Bad as far as I knew for that one episode, but there’s no accounting for taste, and the fans took a fancy to me," he said. "Somebody asked me recently, ‘How did you manage to play such a horrible guy?’ and I said, ‘Have you talked to my friends?’ They’ll tell you I’m pretty miserable to begin with."
His performance in the hit series helped him earn an Emmy nomination in 2012 for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.
