Actor and writer Michael Cyril Creighton first came to attention in his self-penned web series "Jack in a Box" (2009-2012) before landing key supporting roles in the Oscar-winning "Spotlight" (2015) and stoner sitcom "High Maintenance" (HBO, 2016-). Born in Long Island, NY in 1979 Creighton studied Theatre at Boston's Emerson College and later honed his acting skills at New York's Barrow Street Theatre. Creighton went on to make his screen debut in LGBT satire "Fake ID" (2003), appear in several web series and off-Broadway productions, and co-found experimental theater troupe New York Neo-Futurists. In 2009, Creighton used his own experiences of working at the Playwrights Horizons to write and star in "Jack in a Box" (2009-2012), a comedic web series about a disgruntled theater box office employee. A year later he landed one-off appearances in "30 Rock" (NBC, 2006-2013) and "Jeffrey and Cole Casserole" (Logo, 2009-2010), and following a two-episode stint as reality star Marvin in "Louie" (FX, 2010-15) he returned to the big screen in motherhood dramedy "Towheads" (2013) and indie mystery "How to Follow Strangers" (2013). Following cameos on "Orange Is The New Black" (Netflix, 2013-), "Person of Interest" (CBS, 2011-16) and "Nurse Jackie" (Showtime, 2009-2015), and bit parts in "Sleeping with Other People" (2015) and "3rd Street Blackout" (2015), Creighton received acclaim for his portrayal of clerical abuse survivor Joe Crowley in the Best Picture Academy Award winner "Spotlight" (2015). Following guest appearances on "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll" (FX, 2015-16) and "2 Broke Girls" (CBS, 2011-), and recurring roles on Louis C.K.'s "Horace and Pete" (2016-) and online LGBT drama "The Outs" (2012-), Creighton reprised the role of the Helen Hunt-obsessed agoraphobic Patrick in the TV adaptation of web series "High Maintenance" (HBO, 2016-). He then added to his filmography with a small part in indie comedy "Fits and Starts" (2016), and the role of uptight prep school teacher Mr. Rankin in teen crime movie "Coin Heist" (2017).
