Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

As the flashy Marc St. James, one of the most beloved characters on the hit series "Ugly Betty" (ABC, 2006-2010), theater-trained actor Michael Urie became a breakout star, thanks to equal parts fierceness, tenacity and campy humor. Prior to his breakthrough on that series, Urie earned his stripes on the stage before transitioning to the screen on the provocative cable series, "Undressed" (MTV, 1999-2002), which opened the doors to his "Ugly Betty" role. Aside from his stage and television acting career, Urie was also a producer and director of documentary films, and was a longtime board member of Plum Productions. As he expanded into television movies and features, as well as becoming the star of his own series, "Partners" (CBS, 2012- ), all of the hard work only helped add to his luster as one of the most promising up-and-coming talents on television in the new millennium.
