Clark Gregg, actor, writer and director, was born on April 2nd, 1962 in Boston, Massachusetts. He’s best known as a founding member of the acclaimed Atlantic Theater Company, established in New York City in the late 1980’s.
Gregg met his co-founders, David Mamet and William H. Macy, during his years attending New York University. Mamet and Macy became mentors, helping to launch Gregg’s career on stage, screen and television.
Gregg started first in film with a small role in Things Change (1988), directed by Mamet. He quickly moved to off-Broadway, and spent much of his time and energy in the early 1990’s concentrating on stage -- both acting and directing.
Both between N.Y. stage productions and after a move to Los Angeles, Gregg delivered strong supporting role performances in a variety of movies and television episodes, including recurring roles on The Commish and Sports Night.
Not content to just act and direct, Gregg wrote his first screenplay, What Lies Beneath, which was produced and then released in 2000 . Directed by Robert Zemeckis, and starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford, it became a major box office success.
Gregg’s recent television roles include a recurring role on West Wing, as FBI Special Agent Michael Casper and a co-starring role as Richard in The New Adventures of Old Christine.
