Tommy Savas is an American actor best known for his television roles as rookie sailor Cossetti in The Last Ship and as  Dashiell Greer, CIA briefer to various agencies within United States Intelligence Community, in State of Affairs.

Savas was also seen in the independent feature The Moment starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.

Born in Harlem, New York and raised in New Jersey, Savas' big break came at age 15 when he was selected out of 15,000 actors to play the role of Xavier, AJ Soprano's high school friend in the renowned HBO series, The Sopranos.

In 2003, Savas made his feature debut when he appeared in the award-winning film Roger Dodger alongside Campbell Scott, Jesse Eisenberg and Morena Baccarin.

After working in New York for several years, Savas decided to make the move to Los Angeles where he booked back-to-back roles on hit television series, including Arrested Development, Cold Case, The New Adventures of Old Christine, CSI: NY, Castle, House, Hollywood  Heights, Without a Trace, Raising the Bar, Prime Suspect, Law and Order: SVU and Justified, leading up to his recurring role on The Last Ship and his first starring role in television on State of Affairs.

In addition to his work in film and television, Savas has a love for new media and wanted to find a way to release hilarious new content while engaging with fans regularly. He is one of the four co-founders of Reckless Tortuga, a sketch comedy YouTube channel.

He has starred in numerous sketches, playing famed characters in The Online Gamer, Psycho Girlfriend and Office Douche Bag.

He also added producer to his list of credits, starring in (and producing) the feature film Bad Roomies, a dark comedy about two guys living together, who after losing their roommate, put an ad out to find a new one. The movie was partially funded by Kickstarter ($75,000 was raised).

In between jobs, Savas has a heart for charity and is an active supporter of JDRF, raising awareness about Type 1 Diabetes and funding research for the disease, and the American Diabetes Association. He also works with a variety of animal rescue organizations, as he is a dog lover.
