J. M. Kerrigan
Birth: Dec. 16, 1884
County Dublin, Ireland
Death: Apr. 29, 1964
Los Angeles County
California, USA

Actor. Born Joseph Michael Kerrigan in Dublin, Ireland, he was a newspaper reporter before joining the Abbey Players in 1907. He came to the United States in 1917 and appeared in scores of Hollywood movies and on the Broadway stage, playing shifty, blustery little men. Perhaps Kerrigan's quintessential role was as the parasitic Terry in "The Informer" (1935), who encourages the simple-minded title character (Victor McLaglen) to squander his reward money on a drinking spree. His other films include "Little Old New York" (1923), "The Lost Patrol" (1934), "The Werewolf of London" (1935), "The General Died at Dawn" (1936), "The Prisoner of Shark Island" (1936), "The Plough and the Stars" (1937), "Union Pacific" (1939), "Gone With the Wind" (1939), "The Sea Hawk" (1940), "The Long Voyage Home" (1940), "The Wolf Man" (1941), "Wilson" (1944), "Black Beauty" (1946), "Call Northside 777" (1948), "My Cousin Rachel" (1952), and "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" (1954). (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
