Steven Culp on "Traveler"

FBI Agent Fred Chambers on the ABC Television Network's "Traveler"

Steven Culp's Official Biography from ABC

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

His role as the driven, ambitious FBI Special Agent Fred Chambers in "Traveler" in sharp contrast to his most recent role playing the wayward and confused husband and sex fetishist Rex Van De Kamp in "Desperate Housewives," which earned him two SAG Awards (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, 2004 and 2005).

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," "The Sisters," "Spartan," "Nurse Betty," "James and the Giant Peach," "Fearless" and "Dead Again." He can be seen this spring in the comedy "Firehouse Dog," directed by the Emmy Award-winning director Todd Holland.

In addition to film, Culp has an impressive list of television credits. 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 Season, 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 TV 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 telefilms "A Story To Die For" with Angela Lansbury, "How to Make a Monster," produced by Stan Winston, and "Norma Jean and Marilyn."

Beginning his career in New York, Culp appeared in the premieres of Tony Kushner's "Slavs" (Humana Festival, 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).

Culp 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. He starred in "Art" at South Coast Rep, "Light Up the Sky" (directed by Ellis Rabb) at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, and in many other plays, classical and contemporary, at regional theatres across the country.
