Biography #2 (for Third Watch)

A native of Los Angeles, Chris Bauer honed his skills after numerous years on stage in Chicago performing with such noted ensembles as the Steppenwolf Theatre Company which later provided his career with a boost after his controversial role as well as with the famed Goodman Theatre there. From there, Bauer studied at the Yale School of Drama and then moved to New York, where he became a member of the Atlantic Theater Company which was founded by David Mamet and William H. Macy. After a while, he returned to Chicago's stage community where he gained notice for his performance in Steppenwolf's production of the disturbing Clockwork Orange, which Bauer credits as a watershed moment in his career.

Later, Bauer gained his first feature-film role in Snow White opposite Sigourney Weaver. His other film credits include Face/Off, Devil's Advocate, Flawless, 8MM and Animal Factory (directed by Steve Buscemi). Bauer also recently appeared in HBO's acclaimed TV movie 61* which addressed New York Yankee star Roger Maris' torturous 1961 assault on Babe Ruth's single-season home-run record.

Even though the series is filmed in New York City, Bauer resides in the Los Angeles area with his wife and two children.
