Brad Beyer is an American actor best known for his starring role as Stanley Richmond in the science fiction television drama series Jericho, from 2006-2008.
He also starred as Zack Peacham on the short-lived comedy-drama television series GCB, in 2012.
Beyer had a recurring arc on Third Watch, starred as Charlotte's punch-throwing boyfriend on Sex & the City and guested on the likes of Lie to Me, NCIS: Los Angeles, Criminal Minds, CSI: Miami, Law & Order and L&O: Special Victims Unit, among others.
He also starred as Don Meredith opposite John Turturro's Howard Cosell in the TNT original telefilm, Monday Night Mayhem.
Film roles include the comedies Mr. Woodcock, Sorority Boys, the indie favourite Trick, The General's Daughter with John Travolta, and Antonio Banderas' feature directorial debut, Crazy in Alabama.
Beyer garnered the latter two roles after a positive review of his appearance in the off-Broadway production The Chili Queen caught the eye of a casting director who called him in to read for both roles on the same day.
He has remained loyal to his theatrical roots, also starring in Lighting Up the Two Year Old for The Actors Studio and Wonderland at The American Place Theatre.
In New York he studied with William Esper and Wynn Handman. He is also a lifetime member of The Actors Studio.
After lettering in three varsity sports - basketball, football and track - in his native Wisconsin, Beyer crossed state lines to attend the University of Minnesota, where he began acting in a class for non-theatre majors.
His professor encouraged him to pursue the craft as his career, which prompted a move to New York City upon graduation.
