Bio

James Pickens, Jr. is an American actor best known for his starring roles as chief of surgery Dr. Richard Webber on the television drama series Grey's Anatomy and as Assistant Director Alvin Kersh on The X-Files, from 1998-2002.

Pickens started his career playing Zack Edwards on the soap opera Another World, from 1986 to 1990.

He went on to have recurring roles on Curb Your Enthusiasm, The West Wing, JAG, Roseanne, Beverly Hills 90210, Six Feet Under, NYPD Blue and The Practice.

In the Febrary 28, 2007 all-star benefit reading of "The Gift of Peace" at UCLA's Freud Playhouse, he portrayed a man whose life experiences lead him to volunteer in the peace movement, and played alongside actors Ed Asner, Barbara Bain, Amy Brenneman, George Coe, and Wendie Malick.

The play was an open appeal and fundraiser for passage of U.S. House Resolution 808, which seeks to establish a Cabinet-level "Department of Peace" in the U.S. government, to be funded by a two percent diversion of the Pentagon's annual budget.

Pickens has been married to wife Gina since 27 May 1984. The couple has two children.

In his spare time Pickens can be found riding horseback and roping cattle. He is a member of the United States Team Roping Championship and competes in roping events across the country.
