Lang grew up in New York City, along with his two siblings. He attended George School in Newtown, Pennsylvania, and later enrolled in the state’s Swarthmore College, graduating with a degree in English Literature in 1973.

His acting career began in theater, appearing in Broadway productions such as in Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” in 1984, in which he played Harold ‘Happy’ Loman, the role which he would reprise in the 1985 Dustin Hoffman TV film of the same name.

As for the big screen, Lang made his debut with a small part in the 1985 film “Twice in a Lifetime”, and then appeared as reporter Freddy Lounds in the 1986 “Manhunter”, the first Hannibal Lecter film. The same year he was cast as attorney David Abrams in the television series “Crime Story”, and went on to land a few more film parts by the end of the decade, earning rave reviews for his performance “Last Exit to Brooklyn”, all of which did his net worth no harm at all.

The early ’90s saw the actor taking the title role in the television film “Babe Ruth”, and landing a number of big screen parts, including that of the villainous Ike Clanton in “Tombstone” and Maj. Gen. George E. Pickett in “Gettysburg”, roles which significantly contributed to his popularity, and to his wealth as well. He also played the lead in Steve Tesich’s play “The Speed of Darkness”, earning a Tony Award nomination. By the end of the decade, Lang had his fingers in numerous projects, both on big and small screen.

He continued to land a mix of television, stage and film work in the next decade as well. He had the recurring part as Ben Charnquist in the drama series “The Fugitive”, then in 2003, he was cast as Lieutenant General Stonewall Jackson in the period war drama film “Gods and Generals”, an adaptation of Jeffrey Shaara’s novel of the same name, and prequel to “Gettysburg”. Lang’s performance earned critical acclaim, greatly increasing his popularity and his net worth too.

The actor went on to create and star in his own, critically-acclaimed play “Beyond Glory” in 2004, which he followed by appearances in Miller’s last piece “Finishing the Picture”, and John Patrick Shanley’s “Defiance”. Meanwhile, he landed a number of television guest appearances.

In 2009, he was cast as Colonel Miles Quaritch in James Cameron’s epic science fiction film “Avatar”, the role which earned him a number of nominations and a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor, greatly increasing his fame and wealth.

In 2011 he played Commander Nathaniel Taylor in the short-lived sci-fi drama series “Terra Nova”, and later had recurring roles in the series “In Plain Sight”, “Salem” and “Into the Badlands”.

As for the big screen, Lang made dozens of film appearances, his most recent part being in the 2016 horror/thriller “Don’t Breathe”. He is currently involved in filming the period drama “Hostiles” and the action thriller “Braven”, which should also improve his bank account.

When speaking about his private life, Lang has been married to costume designer and teacher Kristina Watson since 1980. The couple has four children together.

# Quote
1 …My dad had gone to Swarthmore. He is New York Jewish and my mom is New York Irish Catholic. You put them together and you get me. I consider myself quite ethnically Jewish, without being particularly religious (laughs). Although, I can leave that door open for the future, if I need it.
2 Acting can be a very reactive profession. Acting is a fantastic thing, and it’s my life, but writing is also part of me too, so I did it and in so doing took responsibility for my own life. And it was very directly and specifically because of “Beyond Glory” that Jim Cameron cast me in Avatar (2009). And Avatar is responsible for the good fortune I’ve had over the last few years.
3 [on reasons for his role in White Irish Drinkers (2010)]: One, I really liked the title, that’s how shallow I am. But the main reason was, I was afraid of it. You kind of heave a sigh and go, “Oh God, I’m going to have to go there?”.
4 [about his role as Stonewall Jackson] It’s not about flag waving to me, it’s about showing a real American hero.
