Name: Eric Bogosian                                                             
Born: 24 April 24, 1953 Woburn, Massachusetts                                   
Eric Bogosian (born April 24, 1953 in Woburn, Massachusetts) is an American     
actor, playwright, monologist, and novelist.                                     
After graduating from Oberlin College, Bogosian moved to New York City to pursue 
a career in theatre.                                                             
As a performer, Bogosian has a very distinctive style. His one-man shows are a   
minimalist blend of dark comedy, geopolitical commentary, and social realism.   
When performing on stage, Bogosian generally appears as a series of characters, 
using few props (beer bottle, cane, cup) if any.                                 
In 2006, Bogosian joined the cast of Law & Order: Criminal Intent as Capt. Danny 
Ross, replacing Jamey Sheridan's character, Capt. James Deakins. He is one of   
numerous Law & Order actors who first played a supporting role, only to return   
as a major recurring character; Bogosian played defense lawyer Gary Lowenthal in 
two episodes of the original Law & Order.                                       
Some of his plays have recently been revived on and off-Broadway, with an       
updated version of his 1994 play SubUrbia at Second Stage Theatre and the       
Broadway premiere of his Pulitzer Prize-nominated 1987 drama Talk Radio,         
starring Liev Schreiber, in March 2007.
