Born Anthony Sarrero, Tony Denison was a struggling actor for years, juggling a number of jobs while pursuing his passion for the stage. After a couple of small on screen roles, Denison starred as the bad guy Ray Luca on "Crime Story" (NBC, 1986-88) from director and executive producer Michael Mann. Time magazine called Luca the best television villain of the 1980s. After the show was cancelled, Denison appeared in a multi-episode arc on "Wiseguy" (CBS, 1987-1990), another crime drama with some of the same creative team. He played philandering husband Joey Buttafuoco in "The Amy Fisher Story" (ABC, 1993), which starred Drew Barrymore in the title role, then had a recurring role on one season of "Melrose Place" (Fox, 1992-99). He landed another series regular role as the head coach on "Playmakers" (ESPN, 2002-03), the first original series from ESPN, which aired for one season. In 2005, Denison made his debut as Detective Andy Flynn, a recurring role on the first season "The Closer" (TNT, 2005-2012) with Kyra Sedgewick. The show was a success and he became a series regular for the remainder of the show and played the role again on the spin-off, "Major Crimes" (TNT, 2012-), starring Mary McDonnell.
