With a passion for Jesus Christ and motorcycles, Monte Perlin is not Hollywood's average stunt man. The Henderson, Nevada native grew up in the mountains, racing motocross and generally loving motorcycle culture. Perlin began his career riding stunts in exhibitions and although he was successful in his field, a drug and alcohol problem threatened to derail his career for good. After embracing the Christian faith, Perlin says that his career turned around completely. He soon began a stunt career in Hollywood, making his first movie, "Savage Dawn," in 1985. A few low-budget movies came next, but within a few years Perlin was working as a stunt man on some of Hollywood's largest projects, allowing him to work with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. He did stunts for 1997 movie "Con Air" starring Nicolas Cage and Steve Buscemi, and had the opportunity to be directed by the legendary Christopher Nolan in the 2000 psychological thriller "Memento." Although he has worked on a number of action movies, Perlin's resume contains drama, comedy, and family fare, such as 2002's "The Sweetest Thing" and 2003's "Seabiscuit." Perlin is one of Hollywood's most talented stunt men, and despite the considerable risks and dangers of stunt work, Perlin loves his career. He credits his faith in God for the longevity and success of his career.
