Bill Camp

As a senior at the prestigious Groton School, where his father was a teacher and headmaster, Bill Camp showed signs of knowing his future path when he abandoned hockey to appear in the school's performance of "The Crucible." After attending the University of Vermont, Camp headed to New York and trained at the venerable Julliard School while beginning his life as a stage actor. Known as someone who fearlessly inhabits his roles, Camp's first onscreen credit was a bit part in "Reversal of Fortune" (1990). Camp continuously worked in theater, playing in Off-Broadway performances of "The Seagull" and "Measure for Measure," and occasionally appearing in films like "In & Out" (1997) or in guest roles on series like "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010). After spending over a year away from acting, Camp returned to the stage in Tony Kushner's play "Homebody/Kabul," which earned him an Obie Award in 2002. Camp's profile began to expand on screen, as well, with roles in "Public Enemies" (2009), "Lincoln" (2012), and "12 Years a Slave" (2013), amongst others. He earned his most exposure to date playing Detective Dennis Box, on the acclaimed HBO limited series "The Night Of" (HBO, 2016). The role earned him an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. It was announced that Camp would have a series regular role on the Hulu limited series "The Looming Tower" about the threat of Al-Qaeda leading up to 9/11.
