Matt Letscher

After attending the University of Michigan, Matt Letscher made his professional debut at Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theater in Chelsea, MI, in the Daniels-penned farce, The Tropical Pickle. This led directly to being cast in Turner Films' Civil War epic, Gettysburg, after he was seen by director Ron Maxwell.

Living in Los Angeles since 1993, Letscher has steadily built an extensive and diverse resume covering screen and stage. Films include Straight-Jacket, Identity, Gods and Generals, Madison, Supersucker, Lovelife, The Mask of Zorro and, most recently, Alan Ball's Nothing is Private, opposite Toni Colette. Television work includes series regular roles on Good Morning Miami, Fox's Living in Captivity and CBS' Almost Perfect, and starring roles in TNT's King of Texas, ABC's The Beach Boys: An America Family and NBC's Jackie, Ethel, and Joan: Women of Camelot. Letscher has more recently appeared on The New Adventures of Old Christine and The West Wing, as well as in Joey, NYPD Blue and Criminal Minds.

On stage Letscher has appeared on Broadway in The Rivals at Lincoln Center and Neil Simon's Proposals, and regionally in the world premiere of Lanford Wilson's Raindance, Love's Labors Lost, As You Like It, Julius Caesar, The Sisters, Absolution, On Approval, Tonight at 8:30 and The Seagull. He has recently been working once again with the Purple Rose Theater, this time as a playwright and director, with the premiere of his farce, Sea of Fools. Most recently he performed at the South Coaast Repertoire in What They Have.
