Paul Schulze is an American actor best known for his television roles as Ryan Chappelle on 24 (2002-2004) and as Father Phil Intintola on The Sopranos, from 1999-2006.
He also stars as Eddie Walzer, a hospital pharmacist, in the dark comedy television series Nurse Jackie.
Schulze is a true New Yorker, raised on the East Side. He attended S.U.N.Y. Purchase in Westchester County, where he was exposed to theatre.
Not long after graduating, he landed his first feature film role in the critically acclaimed, independent film Laws Of Gravity, which co-starred fellow S.U.N.Y. Purchase alum Edie Falco.
Schulze went on to star in numerous films and television series such as The Sopranos, where he played Father Phil Intintola, a priest with an arguably inappropriate fondness for Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco).
He also appeared for three seasons in the hugely successful series 24 as CTU director Ryan Chappelle.
Schulze also starred in the feature films Panic Room, where he played the rookie cop opposite Jodie Foster in one of the film's most memorable and intense scenes, and Rambo, the latest installment in the franchise, where he played missionary Michael Burnett, who continually butts heads with Stallone's character.
