Rich Sommer first caught the attention of audiences with his breakout role in "The Devil Wears Prada" (2006) before becoming better known as the memorably sleazy advertising executive Harry Crane on "Mad Men" (AMC 2007-2015). A native of Ohio, Sommer grew up in Minnesota, where he attended Concordia College in Moorhead. He sang with the school choir and appeared in several University productions as a theater major, before graduating and relocating to Minneapolis. There, Sommer studied improv at the Brave New Workshop and eventually founded his own improv troupe, the Slush Puppies. He then earned his MFA from Case Western Reserve in Cleveland. After a small role in the thriller "Death 4 Told" (2004), Sommer made an impact with his scene-stealing performance in "The Devil Wears Prada." That led to his breakthrough role as power-hungry media buyer Harry Crane on the hugely popular series "Mad Men" (AMC, 2007-2015). While continuing his work on that series, Sommer also made memorable appearances on "The Office" (NBC, 2005-2013), "Law & Order" (NBC, 1993-2010), and the Sherlock Holmes-inspired "Elementary" (CBS, 2012-). In 2015, Sommer joined David Wain and his cast of regulars for "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," (Netflix, 2015-), the TV series prequel to the beloved absurdist comedy film "Wet Hot American Summer" (2001).
