Biography

Though his all-American looks and athletic build primed him for a succession of roles on the small screen, Michael Trucco's first love was the stage. Spotted by a talent manager while starring in a stage production of "A Few Good Men," Trucco soon caught the eye of television audiences as a Marine fighter pilot on the syndicated series "Pensacola: Wings of Gold" (1997-2000) and later as a NASCAR driver who has an affair with a high school student on "One Tree Hill" (CW, 2003- ). It was Trucco's turn as resistance fighter Sam Anders on the cult hit remake of "Battlestar Galactica" (Sci Fi Channel, 2003-08) that proved to be the turning point in his career, positioning him as a possible leading actor worth watching.
