Have you met Matt Parkman? I’m sure if you have, you’d remember it. He could read your thoughts, all o them – the good, the bad, and those you don’t want anybody to know. I have met this police officer in the Heroes series. He is an interesting character, to say the least. Gregory Phillip Grunberg, more often referred to as Greg Grunberg, is known for the role of Matt Parkman. And he played it quite well, I dare say. Who is Greg Grunberg anyway?
He was born on July 11, 1966 in LA, California, into a family with Jewish roots. He appeared in a few television series as a guest before he was noticed. It’s great when your childhood friend is J.J. Abrams, the famous producer. It was J.J., who invited Greg to Felicity and Alias. These two shows and then Greg’s appearance in Mission: Impossible III, which by some coincidental way was directed by Abrams as well, helped pave the way for his casting in NBC’s Heroes. And the rest is history, or future – depending on how one looks at it. Matt Parkman, the mind-reading police officer, was definitely a great character, but will Grunberg be able to rise above Heroes and be his own man in the show business world?
