Trivia:

Has the dubious distinction of having left a successful television series (The West Wing (1999)), to having two failed television series within a year (The Lyon's Den (2003) and Dr. Vegas (2004)), both of which were canceled before running their full seasons. He also rejected the role of Dr. Derek Shepard on Grey's Anatomy (2005) (a series which was still running ten seasons after it premiered) ... See more »

Trademark:

Early in his career, he was known for playing unlikeable and ambitious jerks See more »
