Biography

Sometimes one role is all you need. For Huntington, West Virginia native Aaron Staton, a recurring role on "Mad Men" (AMC 2007- ) was all he needed to kick off his career. Coming from a theater background, Staton built up a career around his character on the popular AMC drama and other assorted film, TV, and even video game roles along the way. Staton was born in 1980 in West Virginia, though he grew up in Florida. He came back north to attend the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, and after finishing up his studies in 2004, Staton slowly started his acting career, acting in various theatrical productions before making his television debut in 2005 in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC 1999- ). He followed that up with a multi-episode run on "7th Heaven" (WB/CW 1996-2007) in 2006. 2007 was a big year for the actor, as he made his film debut in "August Rush" (2007) before appearing in a few other productions including the film adaptation of "The Nanny Diaries" (2007) and the TV show "Without a Trace" (CBS 2002-09). 2007 was also the start on Staton's biggest work of his young career: "Mad Men." As rising young ad man Ken Cosgrove, Staton was a mainstay during the show's run, participating in many memorable moments along the way. During his time on "Mad Men," Staton also guest-starred on a few other shows, including "Imaginary Bitches" (2008- ), a web series that his wife, Connie Fletcher, starred in. In 2011, he was the star of the ambitious Rockstar video game "L.A. Noire," where he played player character Cole Phelps in an intensive role that used groundbreaking technology to record his every facial movement using multiple cameras.
