A consummate actor with a gift for playing intelligent, occasionally reserved men in positions of authority, Christian Clemenson was an Emmy-winning performer whose work in features like "United 93" (2006) and television series like "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08) made him among the busiest character actors in the 1990s and 2000s. He earned his training at Harvard and Yale before heading West to try his hand at screen acting; a lengthy career in supporting roles preceded his breakthrough with "Boston Legal," on which his turn as the psychologically troubled lawyer Jerry "Hands" Esperson earned him critical acclaim and an Emmy Award in 2006. Further accolades from his performance on the series signaled that Clemenson was on the cusp of making the leap from solid supporting to leading man, promising that the best was yet to come.
