A veteran of both movies and television, Block appeared in the feature films The Lonely Guy and The Next Best Thing. On the small screen, he is best known to soap opera fans for his portrayal of Ben Warren on Guiding Light, which earned him a Soap Opera Digest Award nomination for Best Villain.

He has also guest-starred on such shows as Murder, She Wrote and Hill Street Blues as well as in several made-for-television movies, including Bloodline: Beverly Hills Ninja Murders, The Dirty Dozen IV, and She Was Marked for Murder.
