Kyle Reese in James Cameron`s sci-fi action “The Terminator” (1984) next to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton; the role really launched him into the film industry, and also increased his net worth by a large margin.

He finished off the `90s with John Landis` black comedy “Susan`s Plan” (1998) starring Nastassja Kinski and Billy Zane.

Michael then appeared in the film “The Art of War”, which turned out to be box office flop, despite receiving several nominations and awards, and then Michael starred in the crime thriller “Borderline” (2002), with Gina Gershon and Sean Patrick Flanery. Four years later, Michael appeared as Mike Cassidy in the western action drama “The Legend of Butch & Sundance” (2006), and joined forces again with Sean Patrick Flanery in the horror film “The Insatiable”, with the help of Charlotte Ayanna.
