Biography

Actor Sharif Atkins is most familiar to legions of TV viewers for his role as Michael Gallant on the revered drama series "ER. " Atkins studied acting while attending college at Northwestern University, and began winning small parts on TV shows, including episodes of "Turks" and "Early Edition." In 2001, he signed on to "ER," playing Gallant, a medical student who later became a full doctor on the long-running drama. Although Atkins left the show in '04, he returned as a semi-regular cast member in the following two seasons. During his "ER" tenure, Atkins also made guest appearances on the short-lived sitcom "Eve" and the sci-fi series "The 4400," and his later one-off TV spots include episodes of "Criminal Minds" and "CSI: Miami." In '09, Atkins finally became a regular on another show as Special Agent Clinton Jones on the well-received crime comedy/drama series "White Collar."
