With his bright eyes and compelling on-screen personality, Chris Chalk's success as an actor came as no surprise to his longtime fans. Born in Asheville, North Carolina, Chalk hadn't even considered the notion of acting until he enrolled at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. There, he fell in love with theater and performed in a wide variety of plays including "Hair," "Much Ado About Nothing," "The Perfect Party," and "The Bible: The Complete Word of God." After graduating, Chalk began pursuing a professional career on both the stage and the screen, eventually landing a small role in the movie adaptation of the musical "Rent" (2005), though his appearance would last for only eight seconds. After starring in "Defiance" at the Manhattan Theatre Club City Center in 2006 and in an acclaimed Broadway production of "Fences" in 2010, Chalk landed the recurring role of Tom Walker on the phenomenally popular series "Homeland" (Showtime, 2011-) in 2011. Soon, he was offered the role of Gary Cooper on the Aaron Sorkin series "The Newsroom" (HBO, 2012-14), prompting the New York-based actor to relocate to Los Angeles. Though that show would wrap in 2014, Chalk wasted no time booking his next series, playing Lucius Fox on the "Batman" prequel series "Gotham" (Fox, 2015- ).
