  • A native of Houston, TX, Brett Cullen graduated from that city's university, also finding time to compete in fencing and contribute to the Houston Shakespeare Festival. Opting for a shot at stardom over continuing his theater studies, Cullen landed a role on The Chisholms as his first breakthrough. He achieved much attention as Bob Cleary in the highly successful miniseries The Thorn Birds, which led to a stint on the nighttime soap Falcon Crest. He continued to work steadily on both the stage and the screen including production of Guys and Dolls, The Little Foxes, and numerous Shakespearean plays. His film credits include Courage Under Fire and Apollo 13, a role that led to him joining the cast of the Tom Hanks-produced television spectacle From the Earth to the Moon. Cullen has had recurring roles on such respected programs as Ugly Betty, Friday Night Lights, The West Wing, and Lost. In 2007, he starred opposite Uma Thurman in the drama In Bloom. That same year, Cullen starred in the pilot for the television program Life Is Wild, but he was replaced when the show went to series by D.W. Moffett. He had a major role in 2008's The Life Before Her Eyes as well as Brothel. Two years later he played the dad of the troubled lead singer of The Runaways, and he followed that up with a part in the teen comedy Monte Carlo. In 2012 he could be seen in the blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises.

His wife took the kids and took off for Cleveland.

Judge
So what will it be Jim? Death or Exile?
Gordon
If you think we'll willingly walk the ice, you've got another thing coming.
Judge
So death then?
Gordon
It looks that way.
Judge
Okay then, death, by exile.
Judge
Do you choose death or exile?

Nathaniel Price
I bet you spent your whole life believing that you, you were born to do something great, make a difference, do something special. Important. But Michael, it's the most ordinary thought anybody ever had.
Mike Weiss
I'll see you in court.
Nathaniel Price
Well, it might be difficult since your client and partner already accepted the offer.
Mike Weiss
You're right. You might have settled with them, but you haven't settled with me. I'm gonna travel the country making every hospital worker who's ever been infected by a needle stick my client. Every mother who's lost a child, every child who's lost a parent...I'm gonna put them on the stand, and I'm gonna tell them your client has a needle that could have prevented it from ever happening, but he keeps it locked up because it costs too much to make. Trust me, you're about to see just how ordinary I can be.
