Tom Skerritt was born on August 25th, 1933 in Detroit, Michigan with the middle name Alderton, born to Helen and Roy Skerritt. After graduating from Mackenzie High School, he enrolled at Wayne State university and later transferred to UCLA where he began acting in a number of school productions.
During his performance in the play, "The Rainmaker" he caught the attention of a Hollywood scout and soon he was appearing on such films as, "War Hunt" (1962) starring John Saxon, Robert Redford and Charles Aidman.

Skeritt then began to add a variety of television roles to his resume appearing on the series, "Laramie", "The Real McCoys", "Alfred Hitchcock Hour", "My Three Sons", "The Fugitive", "Mannix", "Cimarron Strip", "Wagon Train" and one of his biggest roles in his career on the movie, "M*A*S*H" (1970) starring Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould, Sally Kellerman, Robert Duvall, Rene Auberjonois, Roger Bowen and in his film debut Fred Williamson. 
Now with quite a decent amount of experience on his resume, he returned to the film industry and continued to appear on such features as, "Alien" (1979) co-starring Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto, "The Dead Zone" (1983) starring Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Anthony Zerbe and Colleen Dewhurst, "Top Gun" (1986) starring Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, "The Parent Trap II" (1986), "Maid to Order" (1987) also starring Ally Sheedy, Beverly D'Angelo, Michael Ontkean, Valerie Perrine, Dick Shawn and Merry Clayton, "Steel Magnolias" (1989) starring Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Julia Roberts, Dylan McDermott and Sam Shepard, "Poison Ivy" (1992) with stars such as Drew Barrymore, Sara Gilbert, Cheryl Ladd and Leonardo DiCaprio and "Contact" (1997) starring with Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey, James Woods, William Fichtner, John Hurt, Angela Bassett and David Morse.
As his career has progressed he continues to bounce back and forth between film, stage and television. Such stage productions he has appeared in include, "Love Letters" and "Our Town". More recent television roles include, "Homeland Security", "The Grid", "Brothers and Sisters" and "Leverage".
