He also starred as Kevin 2 in the short-lived NBC sitcom Marry Me.
Bucatinsky won the 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of James Novack on the hit Shonda Rhimes series Scandal, which began airing its third season on ABC this fall.
In 2003 Bucatinsky and partner Lisa Kudrow founded Is or Isn't Entertainment, which produced the cult, Emmy-nominated HBO comedy The Comeback, in which Bucatinsky also starred as publicist Billy Stanton.

In 2010, Is or Isn't It Entertainment produced the original online web series Web Therapy, in which Bucatinsky also stars. The web series most recently garnered a 2012 Emmy nomination, and has won back-to-back Webby Awards in 2010 and 2011 for Best Comedy Series and Best Individual Performance by Lisa Kudrow.
Bucatinsky wrote, produced and starred in the 2001 indie romantic comedy All Over the Guy. As an actor, audiences will also remember him for his work on Grey's Anatomy, In Plain Sight, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Weeds.
Film roles include I Love Your Work and Under the Tuscan Sun, as well as Bounce and The Opposite of Sex, both directed by his husband, Web Therapy co-creator/director Don Roos.
Bucatinsky became a best-selling author when his autobiographical tales of parenthood, Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? arrived in bookstores in June 2012. He is a regular contributor to The Huffington Post and was honoured by the American Fertility Association with an Advocacy Award for his vocal support of adoption and family equality.
As a writer-producer, Bucatinsky was a consulting producer on Grey's Anatomy and also co-executive produced the NBC dramedy Lipstick Jungle.
Bucatinsky and Roos live with their two children in California.
