Michael Chiklis Trivia

Daughter, Odessa, born 1999

Chosen over 200 other candidates for the role of John Belushi in the fantasy biopic Wired (1989).

After his show "Daddio" (2000) went off the air, his wife suggested that Chiklis slim his weight down and change his self image with a different look and a totally different acting part, even if they have to create one themselves for him. He then shaved his head, lost more than 50 pounds, worked out vigorously and the two of them started to write a "rogue cop" movie role for him. Chiklis eventually read "The Shield" (2002)'s pilot script (originally called "Rampart"), which was similar to his "rogue cop" movie script, and aggressively pursued the part of Vic Mackey until he got it. When he read for the the part, he generated anger by being furious at the prospect of not getting it.

Is Greek, his family hailing from the island of Lesbos.

When he was on "The Commish" (1991), a hostage situation broke out down the street from his house. Two LAPD plainclothes detectives came up to him when he was out in his yard and explained the situation to him, thinking he was the LAPD commissioner.

Said when he arrived in New York City, that he was going to kick the city's ass. Three years later when he was a struggling actor so poor that he couldn't afford a can of Spam, he was sitting on the Brooklyn Bridge begging for forgiveness. It was that day when he got the role in Wired (1989).

He lived his fantasy and got to play what he called "my dream role" in 2005 when he played the character in "The Fantastic Four".

He is very proud of his Greek heritage and encourages his daughters to learn of Greece and the Greek language.
