Though originally a supporting player in various film and television projects, actor Bradley Whitford emerged as an Emmy Award-winning lead performer on the critically acclaimed political drama, "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006). Prior to his seven season run on that beloved program, Whitford made a small name for himself, usually as an arrogant yuppie type in films like "Adventures in Babysitting" (1987) and "Billy Madison" (1995). He also excelled on the stage, delivering standout performances in "Romeo and Juliet" (1988) and in the original production of "A Few Good Men" (1989), which introduced the actor to "The West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin. In fact, Whitford became something of a Sorkin player, returning to star in the writer-playwright's critically acclaimed, but ultimately failed drama about the goings-on of a flailing late night sketch show, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" (NBC, 2006-07). Whitford continued working steadily, starring on the sitcom "Trophy Wife" (ABC 2013-14) and appearing in the acclaimed comedy-drama "Transparent" (Amazon 2014- ), co-starring as Hubert Humphrey in the television movie "All the Way" (HBO 2015) and co-starring in Jordan Peele's critically-acclaimed horror hit "Get Out" (2017). Always one to talk about his political views, which were firmly planted on the liberal side of the spectrum, Whitford was often called upon to express his opinions on talk shows like "Real Time with Bill Maher" (HBO, 2003- ) and even co-host a radio talk show on Air America. But his bread-and-butter remained being a strong character actor who could also excel as a prominent leading man.
