Bradley Whitford was trained at the Juilliard School’s Drama Division and made his first television appearance in 1985 on an episode of The Equalizer. He made his film debut the following year in Dead as a Doorman, and through the rest of the 1980s, he appeared in films such as Adventures in Babysitting and Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise, and in a small role on an episode of the series Tales from the Darkside. Other notable films featuring Whitford include Young Guns II, Scent of a Woman, Robocop 3, Philadelphia, The Client, Billy Madison, Cobb, Red Corner, Bicentennial Man, Kate & Leopold, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and Bottle Shock. He’s also appeared on TV shows such as ER, NYPD Blue, The X-Files, Ellen, Touched by an Angel, Malcolm in the Middle, Frasier, The West Wing, and The Mentalist. But I’ve gotta say, I think the most recent film that I saw Bradley Whitford in was some his best work of all time: The Cabin in the Woods. Bradley Whitford turns 53 today.
