Well, after a bit more research, I finally found the actor who played "The Wizard"! :)

His name is Taylor Sheridan and here's his IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0792263/

I found him completely by coincidence as I googled "taylor gibler actor" and in search results there was this guy who looked like Cpl. Reeves. So I looked into it some more. The name and physical appearance were there, as well as age (47 now, meaning around No Remorse he was about 25), but the last name was different. Then I saw a line saying that he has a brother named John Gibler. Since there's no mention on his IMDB page that he ever was in any video game, I checked in which movies/series he was starring around 1995. and among others, he starred in Walker Texas Ranger. So I found the particular episode on Daily Motion - check around 03:35

So there we have it - "mystery" solved! ;;)

p.s.

I deleted the old Taylor Gibler thread.

Excellent research! Interesting that he wrote Sicario. Maybe I should reach out to see what he has to say about Crusader.

Yeah, a short interview would be cool. As far as I understand, No Remorse is among his first acting gigs.

I haven't seen Sicario, but judging by the IMDB score and the fact that it was nominated for 3 Oscars, I'm definitely gonna watch it - tonight, actually. :)

EDIT: Seen Sicario - amazing movie!
