Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

For most of his career, actor Mark Moses was relegated to small supporting roles in features and on episodic television. Though he made an impression as a hapless lieutenant impotent in dealing with two warring sergeants in Oliver Stone's "Platoon" (1986), Moses spent the next two decades struggling to find a breakout role, even though he made a good living appearing on screen. In fact, Moses was not wont for work, appearing in many high-profile projects, including "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), "Gettysburg" (1993) and "Deep Impact" (1998). It was not until playing the widowed husband of a woman who committed suicide on the hit series "Desperate Housewives" (ABC, 2004- ) that Moses finally began receiving the attention and name recognition he longed deserved. He built upon that success with a supporting role as an alcoholic advertising executive on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007- ) that not only boosted his profile, but also assured audiences that his best was yet to come.
