Eric McCormack

Eric McCormack got his start as an actor in Toronto more than 20 years ago. After five seasons with the Stratford Shakespearean Festival and stints in theaters across Canada, he came to the United States, where he has appeared in dozens of series and TV movies, including two seasons as Col. Clay Mosby on Lonesome Dove: The Outlaws Years.

In 1998, McCormack took on the role of Will Truman in NBC's long-running hit series Will & Grace, which earned him five Golden Globe nominations and the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.

McCormack made his Broadway debut in The Music Man in 2001 and returned to the New York stage last year in Neil LaBute's Some Girl(s). This past summer, after co-starring in the A&E miniseries The Andromeda Strain, he starred in the indie film Alien Trespass.

McCormack and his wife, Janet, along with their 5-year-old son, Finnigan, split their time between Los Angles and their home away from home in Vancouver.
