Among his non theatrical fiction is Hawk Moon: A Book of Short Stories, Poems and Monologues (1981) and Rolling Thunder Logbook (1987), as well as Motel Chronicles.

His rough, angular face is best recalled, however, from his work as an actor in such films as Renaldo and Clara (1978); Days of Heaven (1978); Resurrection (1980); Raggedy Man (1981), Frances (1982); and as test pilot Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff (1983), for which he was nominated for the best supporting actor Oscar. In this role, he portrayed a man much like the heroes in his own plays. He went on to play the lead in the film version of his own Fool For Love in 1985.

He has also appeared in Country (1984); Crimes of the Heart (1986); Steel Magnolias (1989); Hot Spot (1990); Bright Angel (1991); Defenseless (1991); Thunderheart (1992), and The Pelican Brief (1993)
