Now It’s hard to tell if people know actor Billy Crudup more for his face or for his voice. A few years on Broadway and Off-Broadway stages led to the screen, where he’s played all sorts of roles for the past two decades: Real-life runner Steve Prefontaine in “Without Limits,” guitarist Russell in “Almost Famous,” big, blue Dr. Manhattan in “Watchmen,” and two great parts last year: Gentle, smiling William in “20th Century Women” and the nameless journalist in “Jackie.” He shifts gears with “Alien: Covenant,” in which his character must take on the challenge of becoming captain of a spaceship, even though he’s probably not ready for the responsibility.

Fifteen years ago, the actor seemed destined for a career as a Hollywood leading man on the back of his charismatic performance as a rock star in Almost Famous. But a taste for offbeat theatre projects, his changing physiognomy, and an international scandal set him on an alternative path. (When Crudup left long-time girlfriend Mary-Louise Parker for Claire Danes in 2003, the headlines were merciless. Parker was pregnant with his son, William, at the time.) Read More: // here
