A stage-trained performer equally adept in both leading and supporting roles, actor Rob Morrow achieved success playing smart, but sometimes callow young professionals in films and on television. Following several false stars, Morrow became an overnight star when he landed the career-transforming role of a hotshot medical school graduate and devoted New Yorker who relocates to a remote Alaskan town for a job to pay off his loans in the charming comedy-drama, "Northern Exposure" (CBS, 1990-95). Morrow moved easily between cool professionalism and prickly antagonism while displaying a sharp, sometimes peevish wit as hotshot Dr. Joel Fleischman. But his demands for a better contract pushed him out of the spotlight in favor of the show's other quirky characters, though he remained in his role for the show's entire run. While he held down his primetime job, he delivered one of his best feature performances, playing an idealistic government lawyer investigating rigged games shows in Robert Redford's acclaimed "Quiz Show" (1994). After several supporting roles and starting a second career as both a feature and television director, Morrow returned to small screen prominence with a successful starring role on the steady procedural, "Numb3rs" (CBS, 2005-2010), which allowed him to remain in-demand as a performer and director.
