Biography

This compact, dark-haired character actor gained attention playing divorce lawyer Eli Levinson, a role which he created on the courtroom series "Civil Wars" (ABC, 1991-93) and reprised on another legal show, "L. A. Law" (NBC, 1993-94). New Jersey native Alan Rosenberg studied at the Yale School of Drama and got his first stage break in "A Prayer for My Daughter" (1978), which was workshopped at the Eugene O'Neill Playwright's Conference and then transferred to the New York Shakespeare Festival where he made his Off-Broadway debut. He subsequently went on to make his Broadway debut in Neil Simon's "Lost in Yonkers" in 1991. Rosenberg's first break in films was a featured role in the coming of age film "The Wanderers" (1979), as a member of a non-violent gang. Supporting roles in forgettable films followed before he scored memorably as the Apostle Thomas in Martin Scorsese's controversial "The Last Temptation of Christ" (1988).
