Michael made his screen debut in 1989 in "Toxic Avenger II," and followed that up with appearances in action flicks like "Universal Soldier" and "Full Contact." His big break arrived when he landed the title role in "Tyson," a made-for-TV bio-pic about boxing great Mike Tyson. He subsequently played "Spawn" in the screen adaptation based on the popular comic book series of the same name.
