Birthday: Jan 7, 1956

Birthplace: Forest Hills, New York, USA

Infamous for the speed with which he jumped ship from his star-making turn as an unconventional sex symbol on "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005) - and more so for the speed with which his film career subsequently floundered - the redheaded Caruso survived public scorn to enjoy a second act success. While his big screen work in the muscular remake "Kiss of Death" (1995) and erotic thriller "Jade" (1995) did nothing to justify his risky TV-to-movies career jump, Caruso persevered, doing good supporting work in lesser-seen projects like the Meg Ryan/Russell Crowe ransom thriller "Proof of Life" (2000) and the psychological horror film, "Session 9" (2001). Although his first attempt to return to series television in an appropriately humble manner - "Michael Hayes" (CBS, 1997-98) - failed to resonate with viewers, lightning struck again with the flashy lead role in the worldwide smash "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002-12). As Lt. Horatio Caine, Caruso won over audiences with his colorful character's campy one-liners, punctuated by a dramatic sunglasses-adjustment, and appeared to be fully returned to the public's good graces. While his career ended up more of a rollercoaster ride than that of many of his peers, Caruso seemed steadier and more focused for his second chance at stardom.
