Christopher Cousins stars in "Breaking Bad" on AMC as Ted Beneke.

Though born in New York City, Christopher Cousins was raised in Oklahoma where he always assumed he would grow up to be a painter. He caught the "acting bug" as a senior in high school and left his home at the age of seventeen to attend the Acting Department at Boston University and graduated with a BFA from the School of Fine Arts. Christopher then returned to the city of his birth and began his career in the theater where he played such roles as Norman in "The Norman Conquests," Mercutio in "Romeo and Juliet" and the title role in "Macbeth." He was first introduced to television on such daytime soap operas as "Another World," "As the World Turns" and "One Life to Live." He went on to guest-starring roles in "Law & Order," "Swift Justice" and "Prince Street" and had a recurring role on "Feds."

Cousins moved to L.A. in the late '90s to star in the series "Opposite Sex" with Milo Ventimiglia. His recent recurring roles include Charles Reilly on "Lipstick Jungle," opposite Kim Raver, and Supreme Court Justice Wallace Rainer on "Vanished." Cousins has had other recurring roles in "American Dreams," "Joan of Arcadia" and "Stargate SG-1." He has guest starred on numerous programs such as "Criminal Minds," "Chuck," "NCIS," "The West Wing," "ER," "The Practice," "Boston Public," "The Shield," "House," "Miracles," "Without a Trace," "Shark," "Cold Case" and "Monk" to name a few.

Film credits include Sam Raimi's "For Love of the Game" with Kevin Costner, "Wicker Park" with Josh Hartnett, HBO's "The Grudge 2," and Gregory Hoblit's "Untraceable" with Diane Lane.

Additionally, Cousins returned to painting while living in New York. Since moving to Los Angeles he has had several exhibitions at the Glass Garage Gallery, SoHo Gallery, The Lowe Gallery and Pharmaka Gallery. Outside of L.A. he has had exhibitions in galleries in Seattle, Washington; Atlanta, Georgia; Boca Raton, Florida; and international exhibitions in Venice; Italy; and Hanoi, Vietnam.
