Since his feature film debut in 1972 in the title role of Shirley MacLaine's brother in "The Possession of Joel Delaney," King has gone on to starring roles in film, television and on Broadway.

In 1974, King came to Hollywood's attention when he played a gang leader in "The Lords of Flatbush," a film which also starred two other young actors, Sylvester Stallone and Henry Winkler. His additional film credits include "Mandingo," "Lipstick," with Margaux and Mariel Hemingway, "Andy Warhol's ‘Bad,'" "The Choirboys," "Class of 1984" and Blake Edwards' hit comedy "Switch."
