Biography[edit | edit source]
Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Dwight went on to earn a BA in Theater Arts from Baltimore's Townson State University. His early work was primarily on stage, and won the "Drama-Logue" award for his role in "The Crucifix of Blood" (starring Charlton Heston.) Dwight also worked odd jobs in New York while honing his craft. He has moonlighted as everything from waiter and door-to-door salesman to officer of the New York Bureau of Pest Control. Roles on TV shows like "Chips" and "Hill Street Blues" helped heat up Dwight's day job, and a co-starring role with Kate Jackson in the TV Movie "Thin Ice" led to his audition for "The A-Team." Though "Howling Mad" Murdock is Dwight Schult's best known role he has gone on to parts in "Lois & Clark," Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek:Voyager, Star Trek: First Contact as Reginald Barclay and the new "Fantasy Island." Currently, Schultz can be heard as the voice of Stan on "The Chimp Channel"
