But Gaines has also made a name for himself in film and television, appearing in such movies as "Heartbreak Ridge," "Porky's," and "Funny Games," as well as TV shows like "Law & Order," "The Good Wife," and "Madam Secretary." He has also lent his voice to a number of animated projects, including "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" and "The Magic School Bus."

Despite his success in Hollywood, Gaines has always remained committed to the theater, and has continued to work on stage throughout his career. He has appeared in numerous productions at the Lincoln Center Theater, the Roundabout Theatre Company, and the Public Theater, among others.

Gaines' talent and versatility have earned him the respect and admiration of his peers, and he remains one of the most respected actors in the business. Whether on stage, on screen, or behind the microphone, Boyd Gaines is a true artist, and a testament to the power of the performing arts.
