A versatile stage-trained actor equally at home in musical comedy and classical roles, Malcolm Gets began his career in local theater in his adopted hometown of Gainesville, Florida. Born in Chicago to British parents, this second son and third of four children exhibited his talents early, training as a classical pianist and making his stage acting debut as a teen in a production of "Annie Get Your Gun." The tall (6'1"), attractive blond trained for the stage at the University of Florida and entered films in 1984 with a role in the locally-shot indie "A Flash of Green." After further studies at Yale, Gets began to make his mark on the NYC stage, alternating between classical plays ("Two Gentlemen of Verona" 1994) and musicals ("Hello Again" 1993; "Merrily We Roll Along" 1994). Although he garnered a bit of attention with an insightful cameo as F. Scott Fitzgerald in the feature "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" (1994), he became a familiar figure to TV watchers the following year debuting as the acerbic, depressive colorist Richard Karinsky hired by a neurotic cartoonist (Lea Thompson) in the NBC sitcom "Caroline in the City." Although not a favorite with critics, the show prospered for several years with the writers fashioning a love story between Thompson's Caroline and Gets' Richard. As the series was winding down, the actor returned to the stage headlining William Finn's autobiographical musical "A New Brain" (1998). Once the show was off the air, the openly gay actor undertook the role of the homosexual "Edward II" in a well-received San Francisco production and acted in the indie "Nine Scenes About Love" (lensed 2000).
