Mark Moses

For most of his career, actor Mark Moses was relegated to small supporting roles in features and on episodic television. Though he made an impression as a hapless lieutenant impotent in dealing with two warring sergeants in Oliver Stone's "Platoon" (1986), Moses spent the next two decades struggling to find a breakout role, even though he made a good living appearing on screen. In fact, Moses was not wont for work, appearing in many high-profile projects, including "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), "Gettysburg" (1993) and "Deep Impact" (1998). It was not until playing the widowed husband of a woman who committed suicide on the hit series "Desperate Housewives" (ABC, 2004-12) that Moses finally began receiving the attention and name recognition he longed deserved. He built upon that success with a supporting role as an alcoholic advertising executive on "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-15) that not only boosted his profile, but also assured audiences that his best was yet to come.
