Character actor Joel McKinnon Miller was a staple of episode television for over two decades, essaying blue-collar types in both dramas and comedies like "Big Love" (HBO 2005-11) and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Fox 2013- ). His no-nonsense brush cut and imposing frame did much to disguise the fact that Miller had studied opera and theater in college and appeared regularly in stage productions for years. Miller began working on television and in films in the early '90s, quickly amassing a formidable list of credits, including a series regular stint on "Big Love" as a practicing polygamist. Though his work on the HBO series was serious, Miller also proved a talented comic player, as evidenced by turns in "Brooklyn" and other sitcoms. Though his name was unfamiliar to most television viewers, Miller's face and talent was widely recognized as one of the most prolific and versatile in the business.
