Tom Arnold was a comedic actor who worked steadily in both film and on television as actor, comedian and media personality. By 1990 he was writing, producing and acting on the iconic sitcom "Roseanne" (ABC, 1988-1997). Arnold was cast alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in the hugely successful action comedy "True Lies" (1994). Eventually Arnold would settle into a career as a supporting player in smaller film roles, television series, and talk shows. Upon occasion, Arnold would be given the opportunity the true acting chops tha he possessed, surprising critics with strong performances in smaller films like "Happy Endings" (2005). Although no longer starring in his own series or taking the lead in mainstream features, all things considered, it had worked out well for Arnold. As he once said, "It's a pretty nice life."
