Bio

Bradley Whitford is an American actor best known for his role as Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman on the television drama The West Wing, from 1999-2006.

For that role he won an Emmy in 2001 for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Whitford also wrote two episodes of the series ("Faith Based Initiative" in the sixth season and "Internal Displacement" in the seventh).

In 2010 he starred as washed-up detective Dan Stark in the action-comedy police procedural television series The Good Guys, and in 2011 guest starred in the Season 3 finale of The Mentalist as a man claiming to be iconic bad guy Red John, only for it to transpire that he was faking it.

He also has a starring role as Pete Harrison, an environmental lawyer who sits at the centre of his blended family, holding together Kate, his two ex-wives, and his three kids, in the television sitcom Trophy Wife.

Whitford is also known for his role as the evil businessman Eric Gordon in the 1995 film comedy Billy Madison.

He made his Broadway theatre debut playing Lt. Daniel Kaffee, succeeding Tom Hulce, in A Few Good Men. Whitford also made a memorable guest appearance on ER in the award-winning episode "Love's Labor Lost" (Season 1, Episode 19).

Whitford also starred in West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin's later series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, playing the role of Danny Tripp from 2006-2007.

Whitford has been married to Malcom In The Middle actress Jane Kaczmarek since 15 August 1992. They live in Los Angeles with their three children, Frances (1997), George (23 December 1999), and Mary Louisa (25 November 2002).

He is politically liberal and has appeared several times on Real Time with Bill Maher espousing a progressive point of view. He also once co-hosted The Majority Report on Air America Radio alongside Janeane Garofalo.

Whitford and Kaczmarek run The Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, an organisation that hosts charity auctions showcasing celebrity attire. Items are put up for bid to the public with proceeds going to benefit children's charities.

They are also vocal supporters and spokespeople for Heifer International.

Whitford was the keynote speaker for Class Day at Princeton University in June 2007.
