|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
He attended Louisiana Tech on a music stipend for two years before transferring to Berea College, Berea, Kentucky, where he performed for the first time on stage as Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew. During and after his years at Berea, he worked in outdoor dramas, dinner theaters, and small repertory groups. His theater credits include Hamlet in Hamlet, Stanley in A Streetcar Naned Desire, Pale in Burn This, Cervantes in Man of La Mancha, and directing Ain't MisBehavin.
In 1989, with a new commitment to acting, Muse began pursuing roles in feature film. By 2007, he had appeared in 44 feature length films sharing scenes with Julia Roberts, Jason Robards, Jon Voight, Robert Duvall, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Don Cheadle, Richard Gere, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Patrick, Hilary Swank, and Kiefer Sutherland. In television, he appeared in the award winning first season of Prison Break (2005) and five episodes of Navy NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service (2003) as Mark Harmon's mentor. Muse also gave an unforgettable performance with Jennifer Love Hewitt as a special guest on Saturday Night Live.
Muse and his wife and daughter now divide their time between their home in Los Angeles and their "hide-out" in the foothills of the Smokie Mountains.
