Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Character actor Gregory Itzin made his name with a series of confident turns as men of power - many with substantial character flaws - but none quite as powerful or flawed as his signature role of President Charles Logan on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). Wholly unprepared for the responsibility of the position, Itzin's Logan went on to defame the office by participating in a variety of cover-ups that nearly toppled the United States' international standing. His performance fleshed out the character beyond a simple straw man and into a fully realized tragic figure, earning both two Emmy nominations and the ire and pity of the show's millions of fans. A theater veteran and television staple for over two decades, the role led to more prominent parts in features and other series, and helped establish Itzin as one of the most capable supporting players in the business.
