Bio

Jamey Sheridan is an American actor best known for his starring role as Captain James Deakins in the police procedural television series Law & Order: Criminal Intent, appearing in 111 episodes from 2001-2006.

He also played the recurring role of Dr. John Sutton on Chicago Hope from 1995-1996 and starred as Dr. Joe Saviano on the ensemble drama series Trauma, from 2009-2010.

He also starred as Vice President William Walden in the psychological thriller television series Homeland, from 2011-2012.

Born and raised in Pasadena, California, Sheridan was acclaimed as the maverick attorney in the title role of John Sayles' quirky NBC drama Shannon's Deal, and later as the man-demon Randall Flagg in the Stephen King mini-series The Stand.

Sheridan has turned in notable performances in television movies including The Lost Child, The Echo of Thunder opposite Judy Davis, Spring Awakening, All Lies End In Murder, Video Voyeur: The Susan Wilson Story, and Ricky Nelson: Teen Idol, as Ozzie Nelson.

Perhaps Sheridan's most recognisable movie role is the taciturn scientist Jim Carver in Ang Lee's The Ice Storm with Joan Allen.

His other notable films include Stephen Gaghan's Syriana, Life as a House, Hamlet as the King, The Cradle Will Rock opposite Emily Watson, Luminous Motion and Desert Saints.

Among his earlier films are Stanley and Iris, A Stranger Among Us, Distant Thunder, Talent For The Game, All I Want For Christmas, Whispers In The Dark, Quick Change, and Wild America.

He also played the title role in Handsome Harry, which he also produced and which premiered in competition at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival.

An accomplished talent on stage, Sheridan first gained notice on Broadway for his Tony Award-nominated performance of Chris Keller in Arthur Miller's All My Sons - a show that also garnered a Tony for Best Revival.

The next year, he portrayed James Tyrone, Jr. in the great Jose Quintero's beloved production of Long Day's Journey into Night with Jason Robards and Colleen Dewhurst.

Sheridan has graced the Broadway boards with other stimulating performances including Sgt. Toomey in Biloxi Blues and The Shadow Box.

Off-Broadway, he appeared in Julius Caesar as Brutus at the New York Shakespeare Festival in Central Park and in Killer's Head by Sam Shepard, at the Public Theater.

Other memorable roles include Alan Turing in Breaking the Code at the Berkshire Theater Festival, his return to the role of James Tyrone, Jr. in Eugene O'Neill's Moon for the Misbegotten at Williamstown, and Enigma Variations, a duet opposite Donald Sutherland at the Mark Taper Forum.
