Michael Berryman

Michael Berryman (born September 4, 1948) is an American actor. He has appeared in several horror movies, including the original "The Hills Have Eyes" and other B movies, though his first movie appearance was in the classic "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest". Berryman is famous for having a distinctive physical appearance as a result of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, a rare genetic condition which prevents him from developing hair, sweat glands or fingernails. According to his own statements in an interview for the DVD release of "The Hills Have Eyes", he was born with "twenty-six birth defects." Prior to acting, Berryman worked in the floral profession. He's a Virgo, and by all accounts, a very nice man.

This was both a fun and difficult sim to make, since he has such a unique face, and is my first attempt of making a celebrity sim, so I wanted to try something a little different. Michael is very well known in the sci-fi/horror fan crowd not only for his distinct looks but also for his incredible humbleness and willingness to chat with his fans. He usually plays Mutant Bikers or the like, and has the best line in the movie "Weird Science". 

He is listed as requiring the Supernatural EP, as he uses the dark eye circles eyeshadow makeup that came with that EP. If you don't have Supernatural, you can simply replace that eyeshadow with the one of your choice, or none at all. The bald hair and "no eyebrows" came with the patch for Seasons, so as long as you have patch 1.42 or higher, you have these in your game. All clothing is from the Base Game.

His nose has changed shaped as he has gotten older, from being thinner when he was young to much wider as he has gotten older. I chose to make an "amalgam" of his nose as it has shifted over the years, to account for when he ages up in-game. 

Michael is an Adult, so look in that category in the sim-bin.
