After having his start on the stages of his native New York City, actor Noah Emmerich slowly, but surely rose to stardom as a prominent character actor who made a number of memorable appearances throughout his prolific career. Emmerich first broke through as a happily married, but fiery tempered man in Ted Demme's "Beautiful Girls" (1996) before raising his profile with noticeable supporting parts in the big screen favorites "The Truman Show" (1998) and "Miracle" (2004). But the small screen proved to be fertile ground for the actor, as he found meatier parts as a guest star on shows like "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ) and "Monk" (USA Network, 2002-09), before landing a recurring role as a disgraced federal agent on "White Collar" (USA Network, 2009- ). From there, he was the lone survivor of the zombie apocalypse at the Centers for Disease Control on "The Walking Dead" (AMC, 2010- ) and finally achieved leading role status as a suspicious FBI agent living next door to undercover KGB agents on "The Americans" (FX, 2013- ). Regardless of the role's prominence, Emmerich always brought depth and gravitas to every character he played.
