Keith Szarabajka is an American actor and voice actor best known for his role in The Dark Knight, The Equalizer, and Angel.


Szarabajka was born in Oak Park, Illinois, on December 2, 1952, to Anne, a schoolteacher, and Edward Szarabajka, a savings and loan officer. He is of Polish descent. In his early years, he attended John Hersey High School in Arlington Heights, Illinois, and then the University of Chicago, as well as Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. He then studied acting at the Organic Theater in Chicago from 1972 to 1978. Szarabajka's surname, pronounced [ʂaraˈbajka] in Polish, means "gray fable". Starting an acting career, his credits became extensive. Szarabajka appeared in numerous TV programs, including Profit, The X-Files, Becker, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, Charmed, Roswell, 24, Max Steel, The Inside, Law & Order, and Babylon 5. He became known for his role as Mickey Kostmayer in the 1980s show The Equalizer, as well as his recurring role as vampire hunter Daniel Holtz in the cult series Angel, the spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He went on to portray the lead role in Stephen King's Golden Years.

Szarabajka has also contributed his voice to several works. He voiced Russman in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, antagonist Dmitri Yuriev in the Xenosaga series, The Master of Whispers in Guild Wars: Nightfall, and Emile Dufraisne in Splinter Cell: Double Agent. In addition, Szarabajka played the role of Detective Gerard Stephens in the Batman Begins sequel The Dark Knight and voiced Dr. Terrence Kyne for the animated sci-fi horror movie Dead Space: Downfall, which was based on the Dead Space video game. He also voiced a minor character in Condemned 2: Bloodshot, which was named Inferi. He also portrays the Archangel Azrael in Darksiders: Wrath of War as well as a very small role in Dragon Age: Origins as an unidentified dwarf collecting nugs. He then plays the Reaper Harbinger, the main antagonist of the video game Mass Effect 2, as well as a few minor characters.

In 2008, he voiced Venom in Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. In 2010, he voiced the Autobot Ironhide in Transformers: War for Cybertron as well as its 2012 sequel Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Szarabajka then provided his face for Mr. Freeze in Young Justice, Gilgamesh in the video game Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy, and Joshua Graham in Honest Hearts, downloadable content for Fallout: New Vegas.
