Jeremy Sisto

Jeremy Sisto is probably best known for playing Billy Chenowith on Alan Ball's Six Feet Under for five years, a role which Ball wrote for him. Last year he finished a three year run on Law & Order as Detective Cyrus Lupo. He was also the lead in the short-lived but critically acclaimed Jason Smilovic show, Kidnapped, and played the title role in the two miniseries Jesus and Julius Caesar. Sisto makes his first foray into single-camera comedy Suburgatory.

Sisto's film credits are eclectic and date back to the early '90s with titles such as Grand Canyon, Clueless, Hideaway, Moonlight and Valentino, White Squall, Without Limits, Suicide Kings, Thirteen, Wrong Turn and Waitress. He is in two upcoming releases, As Cool as I Am with Claire Danes and James Marsden, and Robot and Frank with Frank Langella and Liv Tyler. He co-wrote the story and will star in the film Break Point, a dramedy set in the professional doubles tennis world, produced by Smuggler Entertainment.

Sisto's Los Angeles theater credits include Take Me Out (the role earned him a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Featured Performance), Sidney Kingsley's Dead End at the Ahmanson Theater, and the one-man show Sanguine at the 2nd Stage. In New York he made his Broadway debut in Festen, a stage adaptation of Thomas Vinterberg's film The Celebration, and he recently finished Beau Willimon's Spirit Control at the Manhattan Theater Club - a story that explores one man's 30-year struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder. Sisto also starred with Brian Dennehy in Bertolt Brecht's Galileo in Chicago. The play was directed by Robert Falls.
