Steven Culp's Official Biography from Arclight Press Release

An actor who delivers a heady combination of charisma and intensity to his roles, Steven Culp continues to demonstrate his versatility.

His most recent role as Rex Van De Kamp on the hit ABC series Desperate Housewives, earned him a SAG Award ("Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series"). The show also received the Golden Globe Award for "Best Television Series--Musical or Comedy," a People's Choice Award for "Favorite New TV Drama," and was selected as a 2004 AFI TV Program of the Year.

In 2000, Culp won critical acclaim for his performance as Robert F. Kennedy in the film Thirteen Days. The film is set during the two-week Cuban missile crisis in October of 1962. Kevin Costner and Bruce Greenwood also starred.

Other films include The Emperor's Club, Spartan, Nurse Betty, James and the Giant Peach, Fearless, and Dead Again. His most recent movie, the independent feature The Sisters, is an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's drama Three Sisters. The ensemble cast also includes Maria Bello, Mary Stuart Masterson, Erika Christensen, Eric McCormack, Tony Goldwyn, Alessandro Nivola, Chris O'Donnell, Elizabeth Banks and Rip Torn. It premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival, and has since had successful screenings at festivals across the country.

In addition to film, Culp has an impressive list of television credits to his name. Some of his more memorable recurring roles are Speaker of the House Jeff Haffley on The West Wing, the mysterious CIA agent Clayton Webb on Jag, Dr. Corday's love interest Dave Spencer on ER, and the stalwart Major Hayes on Star Trek: Enterprise. In the 2003-2004 seasons he achieved what may have been a TV first by appearing on all of these series at the same time.

He made his primetime TV debut as John Hay in the Emmy-winning miniseries Gore Vidal's 'Lincoln', opposite Sam Waterston and Mary Tyler Moore. Among his many other television appearances are recurring roles on 24, Ally McBeal and Philly; guest-starring appearances on CSI, The Practice, Crossing Jordan, Providence, Boston Public and Chicago Hope; and roles in the movie-of-the-week, A Story to Die For with Angela Lansbury, How to Make a Monster, produced by Stan Winston, and the HBO movie Norma Jean and Marilyn.

Beginning his career in New York, Culp has appeared in the premieres of Tony Kushner's Slavs (Actor's Theatre of Louisville), Terrence McNally's The Lisbon Traviata (Theatre Off-Park), A.R. Gurney, Jr.'s Sweet Sue (Williamstown Theatre Festival), Neil Simon's "Actors and Actresses" (Hartman Theatre), Keith Reddin's Highest Standard of Living (Playwright's Horizons) and Jonathan Tollins' If Memory Serves (Pasadena Playhouse).

He received Drama-Logue Awards for his performances in Angels in America at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco and in the West Coast premiere of Nicky Silver's "Raised in Captivity" at South Coast Rep. He starred opposite Annette Bening in Coastal Disturbances on Broadway, and appeared with Kevin Kline in Richard III in Central Park.
