Tom Wilson's career on stage began in the theatre, studying in New York, which led down an unusual path of starvation and opportunity to the stages of comedy clubs, where he performed for many years.
After moving to Los Angeles, he was accepted as a regular at the world famous “Comedy Store”, performing with the “Comedy Store Players”, improvising onstage with Richard Pryor, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey when he was 21 years old. He was soon cast in episodic television shows, commercials and eventually was cast as “Biff”, Michael J. Fox’s beefy nemesis in the classic Back To The Future trilogy of films.
A long string of movie roles followed with the opportunity to work with legendary directors such as John Frankenheimer, Stuart Rosenberg, Taylor Hackford, Robert Zemeckis, Steven Spielberg and Steve Oedekerk. He has appeared as a recurring guest star on the television series Ed, Do Over, Freaks and Geeks, Titus, Fired Up, and Maggie, as well as Boston Public, Two and a Half Men and many, many others.
