Inspired by the works of his Academy Award-winning father, Guest Director Ed Begley Jr. became an actor. He first came to audiences' attention for his portrayal of Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the long-running hit television series, St. Elsewhere, for which he received six Emmy nominations. Since then Begley has moved easily between feature, television and theatre projects. Begley appeared recently in A Mighty Wind, a follow-up to the American Comedy Award-winning film, Best In Show, with Christopher Guest, Catherine O' Hara and Parker Posey. His other feature film credits include Batman Forever, Greedy, The Accidental Tourist, She-Devil and The In-Laws. On television, Begley just completed a new pilot called True, starring Anne Heche on the WB. He can also be seen in recurring roles on Jack & Bobby, Six Feet Under and 7th Heaven. He also guest starred in such series as The West Wing, The Practice, The Drew Carey Show, Touched By an Angel and Providence.
