Is one of three "Crime Story" (1986) stars to appear in the Hannibal Lecter trilogy. He starred with Dennis Farina and Bill Smitrovich in Manhunter (1986), and Ted Levine played "Buffalo Bill" in The Silence of the Lambs (1991).

Gave special performances of his one-man show "Beyond Glory," which deals with America's greatest war heroes who were awarded the Medal of Honor, for both the U.S. Senate in Washington and the U.S. troops in the Persian Gulf. The show was backed by The National Endowment for the Arts.

While many Gettysburg (1993) cast members reprised their roles in the prequel Gods and Generals (2003), Lang was one of several actors (and the most prominent one) to play two different characters. He played George Pickett in "Gettysburg" and General Stonewall Jackson in "Gods and Generals".

In 1993, he appeared in Tombstone (1993), which featured Wyatt Earp a distant cousin of the famous lawman. He later appeared in Gods and Generals (2003), in which Confederate General Robert E. Lee is played by his real-life descendant, Robert Duvall.
