Marc Vann


Date Of Birth

August 23, 1954


American actor Marc Vann was born on August 23, 1954 in Norfolk, Virginia. Though he preferred spending his time fishing and riding motorboats, he got into acting soon enough. It was all because he looked into a mime workshop during his MBA studies. He soon found himself training for dance and movement, later taking it to the stage. He first appeared on the theatre production for West Side Story at Boulder's Dinner Theatre in Colorado. While there, he met actress Mary Easterling and got married.

Marc Vann then moved to Chicago, where he took part in other stage productions. These include "Flyovers" with William Petersen and "Hysteria" at Steppenwolf Theatre, where he portrayed Salvador Dali under the direction of John Malkovich. Vann eventually got a job as an arts administrator before focusing on acting. On screen, he made his debut as Phil Pritchard on the TV series Early Edition in 1996. Since then, he has appeared on shows like Malcolm in the Middle, Judging Amy, The Guardian, The Shield and Angel.

Vann has also been seen in films like Ghost World (2001), In Memory of My Father (2005), and Spider-Man 3 (2007). He also played a protestor on the Adam Sandler comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007). He followed it up with more television roles, such as those on Lie to Me, Lost, and Grey's Anatomy. However, he is best known for his portrayal of Curator Miles Franklin and Hal Duncan on Monk, as well as playing Conrad Ecklie on the long-running TV series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
