Joshua Malina

Having recently starred in the Emmy Award winning West Wing, actor Joshua Malina has the impressive distinction of having appeared in all but one project that Aaron Sorkin has written/produced. Upon graduation from Yale University with a B.A. in Theatre, Malina made his professional acting debut in the Broadway production of Sorkin's A Few Good Men. He went on to star as Jeremy Goodwin in the critically acclaimed ABC television series Sports Night, for which he and his castmates were nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy. Other Sorkin credits include the hit features The American President and Malice.

Additional film credits include Bruno Barreto's dark comedy for Miramax, A View from the Top, with Gwenyth Paltrow and Mike Meyers, In the Line of Fire, with Clint Eastwood, and Bulworth, with Warren Beatty and Halle Berry.

Malina served as executive producer on the original Bravo series Celebrity Poker Showdown, which filmed on location at the Palms Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and has broken ratings records for the network. A sixth installment taped this April. He's also affiliated with the HollywoodPoker.com website.

Malina appeared in Hank Azaria's directorial debut, a short film entitled Ray's Ex Vision. This marked their first collaboration since they co starred as writing partners on the sitcom Imagine That. Among his other television credits is a recurring role on The Larry Sanders Show as Kenny, the shockingly uncreative creative executive; the Tom Hanks HBO production of From the Earth to the Moon; Tracey Takes On; Numb3rs; the telefilm How to Marry a Billionaire; and the ABC Family Channel original See Jane Date.

Raised in New York, Malina now resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.
