John Billingsley

An ubiquitous presence on both the big and small screens, character actor John Billingsley was a well-known regular on TV's guest-star circuit before landing his first steady gig as a series regular in 1999's short-lived series, "The Others." However, it was not until 2001 that Billingsley won his first breakout role as the irrepressibly optimistic Dr. Phlox on the sci-fi series, "Star Trek: Enterprise" (UPN, 2001-05). He would follow up that successful run with a shorter turn on the heavily promoted serialized drama, "The Nine" (ABC, 2006) - all projects raising the profile of this dependable utility player.
