Steve reevis native actor
Steve Reevis (born August 14, 1962) is a Blackfeet Native American actor. The role of Shep Proudfoot in the Academy Award-winning film Fargo (1996) is perhaps the best known performance by Reevis.
Steve Reevis grew up on the Blackfeet Reservation. Steve graduated from South Dakota's Flandreau High School and attended Haskell Indian Junior College in Lawrence, Kansas, where he received a degree in arts.
His first movie job was as a stunt rider in the 1987 film War Party which also had his brother, Tim. Tim later performed in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show at Disneyland Paris. Steve's first acting role, in 1988, was in Universal's Twins. His non-speaking role as Cheyenne Warrior #1 in the highly acclaimed Dances with Wolves in 1990 brought face recognition for the young actor and helped to open doors for additional roles. In 1993, he was cast as the Apache scout, Chato, in Geronimo: An American Legend starring Wes Studi as the titular warrior, another role that brought recognition to Steve as an actor. He is probably most recognized for his 1995 Native American lead role in Last of the Dogmen with Tom Berenger.
In 1996, Reevis received an award from First Americans in the Arts (FAITA) for his supporting roles in both the critically acclaimed movie "Fargo" and in the made-for-television movie "Crazy Horse". In 2004, he repeated this honor for his work on the ABC series Line of Fire.
More recently, Reevis has appeared in Columbia’s 2003 film The Missing, in the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard, and in TNT's 2005 mini-series Into the West. Reevis also appeared on Fox's drama series Bones.
He resides in Morongo Valley, California.
