Michael Hogan is a Canadian actor of Irish descent best known for his role as Colonel Saul Tigh in the re-imagined series Battlestar Galactica, from 2003-2009.

Hogan, a prospector's son, was born in Northern Ontario. He trained at the National Theatre School of Canada, where he met his future wife, actress Susan Hogan. They worked as a duo until their children, Jennie-Rebecca Hogan (actress), Gabriel Hogan (actor) and Charlie Hogan (audience member), came along.

Over the years, Hogan has appeared in countless plays, films, TV series and radio dramas, as well as an opera.

Some of his favourite feature film experiences include Clearcut, with his good friend Graham Greene, shot in the bush north of Lake Superior; Road to Saddle River, shot in the Badlands of Alberta; Klondike Fever, with Rod Steiger, Lorne Greene, Angie Dickinson and Gordon Pinsent, shot in and around Barkerville, British Columbia, in the winter; and A Simple Curve, shot in the Slocan Valley, British Columbia.

His most rewarding television experiences include his work on Jake and the Kid, Monk, African Skies, Dead Man's Gun, Lifeline to Victory, Nights Below Station Street, Calico Christmas, For Those Who Hunt the Wounded Down and his all-time favourite, Battlestar Galactica.

Among his numerous live theatre performances are the title role in Cowboy King, performed on horseback at the Caravan Farm Theatre in the interior of British Columbia; Biff Loman in Death of a Salesman — then, 19 years later, Willy Loman in the same play; Red Mango Blues, a one-man show (backed by guitar virtuoso Harris Van Berkel), written by poet-playwright Charles Tidler; and Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew, with his wife Susan as Kate.

Hogan has performed on several radio shows, including Pocket City Blues, a radio series about a blues DJ who stumbles into a different crime every week. Hogan's distinctive voice has also been heard over CBC Radio as the narrator of many books, poems and short stories.

His award nominations are numerous and include a Blizzard Award for Best Leading Actor (feature-length) for his role in Nights Below Station Street, from Manitoba Film; and a Genie for Best Supporting Actor (feature-length) in Solitaire.
