Orser is a character actor, known best for playing parts of deranged, psychotic, and degenerate characters. Orser has appeared in small roles in a wide variety of films and television shows.
Orser made his television debut in 1991 on the show Gabriel's Fire. His next roles were bit parts and small roles on The Golden Girls, Cheers, L.A. Law, The X-Files, NYPD Blue, Law and Order: SVU and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. In 1999 he played the (rather demanding) main role of Dr. Arthur Zeller in the Outer Limits episode Descent, a part seemingly tailored by writer Eric Saltzgaber for Orser's particular talents.
He has had bit parts in many popular films. He appeared 1995's Se7en as the man arrested at a brothel, and victim of the lust sin. He was credited as "Crazed Man in Massage Parlour". He played Larry Purvis in 1997's Alien: Resurrection, one of the experimental victims who was infected by a face hugger under the supervision of Dr. Wren. Purvis tries to escape with the rest of the crew but Wren stops him. In his final moments, when his chestburster is about to explode, he pulls Wren's head over his chest so that when the chestburster emerges, it erupts through Wren's head and kills him too. He also appeared in Saving Private Ryan as the pilot of the crashed glider.
Orser appeared in various parts in the Star Trek franchise, among them playing a Changeling posing as the Romulan Colonel Lovok in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine two-parter episode " Improbable Cause" / "The Die is Cast", and a homicidal hologram in the Star Trek Voyager episode "Revulsion". Since 2004, he has played Chief of Surgery Dr. Lucien Dubenko, a recurring character on the television show ER.
From 1987 to 1989, Orser was married to actress Roma Downey; he is currently married to the actress Jeanne Tripplehorn.
