Biography

Fresh out of Yale, actor Joshua Malina headed for the bright lights of Manhattan hoping to land roles on stage. AS luck would have it, he met aspiring playwright Aaron Sorkin and this serendipitous friendship has led to the actor's participation in nearly all of the writer's projects. When Sorkin's first play, the military courtroom drama "A Few Good Men" premiered on Broadway in 1989. Malina was in the cast and when Rob Reiner translated it to the screen in 1992, the actor was cast in the small role of an orderly. Additionally, he acted in the thriller "Malice" (1993) and reteamed with Reiner for "The American President" (1995), both penned by his pal Sorkin. So it seemed only natural when it came time to cast the role of Jeremy Goodwin, the book-smart, newly hired research assistant and associate producer in the comedy-drama "Sports Night" (ABC, 1998-2000), the actor would be hired. Malina brought a sweetness to the part, particularly as his character grew and developed, notably in an inter-office romance with assistant producer Natalie Hurley (played by Sabrina Lloyd).
