Character actor Spencer Garrett grew up surrounded by showbiz--his mother served multiple terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild and his father ran a successful talent agency. After studying drama at Fordham University, Garrett took classes with famed acting coach, Sanford Meisner. He soon landed a one-off guest role on "21 Jump Street," an undercover cop drama that launched the career of star Johnny Depp, and appeared on an episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" as a Starfleet doctor who hides his Romulan heritage. Garrett landed steady supporting work through the '90s; he was cast as a White House aide in the action thriller, "Air Force One," about a resourceful President (Harrison Ford) who fights back when the title plane is seized by hijackers, and landed a recurring role as a family court district attorney on the family melodrama, "Judging Amy." In 2008, he appeared in the gambling film, "21," based on the real-life Vegas exploits of a gifted team of MIT students, and later landed a small part in the Jim Carrey comedy, "Yes Man." After a short but memorable role as a wounded escaped convict in the A-list historical drama, "Public Enemies," Garrett portrayed disgraced Republican House Majority Leader, Tom DeLay, in the 2010 film, "Casino Jack," about convicted Washington lobbyist, Jack Abramoff.
