Rhys Coiro

It’s no secret that Rhys Coiro is a talented - and handsome - actor who embodies a variety of talents. From the theater to the small screen to the silver screen, Coiro can truly do it all. Acting wasn’t his first love, but luckily he found his acting path at a young age. Before finding a permanent home in Princeton, New Jersey, at 9 years old, Coiro bounced around the east coast with his family. He lived in Washington D.C., Brooklyn and upstate New York. He was first introduced to acting as a young boy in high school. He was quite good at it, but Coiro didn’t plan on making a career out of it. Originally, he planned on attending Rutgers, but after being rejected, acting sort of became his “saving grace.” Carnegie Mellon University, School of Drama, was the only school to accept him, and so he was forced to choose acting as an official career. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 2002 with a drama degree. A few years later, his acting career took off successfully. He’s been spotted on “Six Feet Under,” “Hawaii Five-0,” “Dexter” and on all three “CSI’s.” Coiro has also had several recurring roles including Sean Hillinger on “24,” Dr. Zeke Barnes on “A Gifted Man” and photographer Vincent Bianchi on “Ugly Betty.” So far, his most popular role was as self-centered and maniacal director Billy Walsh on HBO’s hit show “Entourage.” Coiro can also been seen alongside alongside Dylan McDermott and Toni Collette in the CBS drama “Hostages.” He’s even appeared in movies like “Straw Dogs,” “MacGruber” and “L!fe Happens,” which was written and directed by his wife Kat Coiro, an accomplished director. Coiro’s resume doesn’t just include TV and films, but also several theater performances. He starred in the Lincoln Center Theater revival of “Dinner at Eight,” as an understudy in the Off-Broadway production of “This Lime Tree Bower” and in the Manhattan Second Stage Theatre production of “Boys’ Life,” alongside Jason Biggs and Betty Gilpin. He’s definitely one versatile man. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children.
