Biography

Before he redefined himself as a gritty man of action in HBO's critically acclaimed "Band of Brothers" (2001) and on the fan favorite "Southland" (NBC/TNT, 2009- ), Michael Cudlitz found himself typecast by his naturally cherubic face in roles that rarely strayed far from high school. Cudlitz climbed the industry ladder from behind-the-scene work as a carpenter and construction coordinator to a run of high-profile guest roles on such popular TV series as "Beverly Hills 90210" (Fox, 1990-2000) and "NYPD Blue" (NBC, 1993-2005), as well as in such feature films as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "D3: The Mighty Ducks" (1996) and "Grosse Pointe Blank" (1997). Playing teenagers well into his thirties, Cudlitz received a major career boost with his casting as Sgt. "Bull" Randleman in "Band of Brothers," a miniseries following the 101st Airborne Division's Easy Company through the European Theater during World War II. A host of man-in-uniform roles followed, including series regular status as the pragmatic SWAT team leader Frank Rogers on the short-lived "Standoff" (Fox, 2006-07), and memorable guest roles on the long-running "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010) and "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). Cudlitz scored immediately with critics and viewers as troubled LAPD training officer John Cooper on NBC's "Southland" in 2009. Fan loyalty was key to the show surviving its network cancelation after the first season and its rescue by the cable network TNT, where Cudlitz was able to nurture one of television's most fascinating characters.
