Michael Mosley

Born in Iowa City, Iowa, Michael Mosley is an alumnus of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. Upon graduating from AADA, he started his professional acting career in New York City, performing at numerous theatres, including the Soho Playhouse, Cherry Lane Theatre, Studio Dante, and Manhattan Theatre Club, where he played a lead in Itamar Moses' play, Back Back Back.

Although theatre was one of Mosley's true passions, he was also drawn to film and television. One of his first recurring television roles was on The Education of Max Bickford, starring Richard Dreyfuss, Marcia Gay Harden and Katie Sackhoff. During this time, Mosley also booked a role in the film Swimmers, opposite Cherry Jones, Robert Knott, Sean Hatosy and Sarah Paulson. In 2006 he booked a recurring role on Kidnapped, an NBC series opposite Timothy Hutton, Dana Delaney, Jeremy Sisto, Olivia Thirlby and Delroy Lindo. Later that year he also appeared in a pilot for NBC that was being produced by Bill Lawrence. Lawrence would later remember him and cast him as a series regular in the 9th season of Scrubs.

Mosley starred as Drew Suffin on the farewell season of Scrubs. His role as the cynical, anti-social, med school dropout garnered him critical acclaim. He went on to appear on ABC's Happy Endings, TNT's The Closer, NBC's Law & Order: LA, and had a three-episode guest arc on the FX series Justified. On the film front, Mosley was seen in The Proposal as Chuck, alongside Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, in the The Accidental Husband as Declin, starring Uma Thurman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Colin Firth, and in 20th Century Fox's 27 Dresses with Katherine Heigl.

In addition, Mosley recently shot an indie thriller entitled Restive in Crawford, Texas with first time writer/director Jeremiah Jones, starring alongside Marianna Palka, Ivan Sandomire and Christopher Denham.
