An accomplished Tony Award-nominated stage actor, Scott Bakula earned his loyal small screen following through his starring role as the time-traveling, identity-shifting protagonist of the sci-fi series "Quantum Leap" (NBC, 1989-1993). Bakula was occasionally featured in films, including comedies "Necessary Roughness" (1991) and acclaimed dramas "American Beauty" (1999) and "Life as a House" (2001), but his rugged, all-American looks and "everymen" appeal generally made him a better fit for television work. He spent two seasons sparring with "Murphy Brown" (CBS, 1988-1998) and commanded leading roles on the "Star Trek" offering "Enterprise" (UPN, 2001-05), and as Ray Romano's mid-life crisis buddy on "Men of a Certain Age" (TNT, 2009-11). Bakula's versatility led to over two decades of steady screen success, where he was equally appealing as square-jawed men of authority or charming, sensitive dreamboats in both comedies and dramas.
