Geoff Pierson stars in HBO's comedy series "The Brink" as Pierce Grey.

Born and raised in Chicago, Geoff Pierson began acting professionally there before moving on to the Yale School of Drama and then to theater productions both in New York and around the country. Some of his favorite roles he's played in theater include Angelo in Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure," Wang in Edward Bond's "The Bundle," Valmont in "Les Liaisones Dangereuses," Teach in David Mamet's "American Buffalo," Roma in "Glengarry Glen Ross," Bobby in "Speed the Plow," Stanley in "A Streetcar Named Desire," and Botts in "Exact Change." In the 1980s he co-starred with George C. Scott on Broadway in "Tricks of the Trade," then worked extensively in daytime television, notably starring for three years as Frank Ryan in ABC's "Ryan's Hope."

In the 1990s Pierson appeared at the Westport Country Playhouse in "Far East" and at the Bay Street Theatre Festival in "Men's Lives" and "Alone at the Beach." He also co-starred with Leslie Uggums in the world premiere of the Ethel Waters bio-play "Stringbean" before moving to Hollywood to star in two primetime television series. He first played Jimmy Kelly in the ABC comedy hit "Grace Under Fire," and then starred for five seasons as Jack Molloy in the WB's riotous comedy "Unhappily Ever After." Subsequently he went on to star in yet another comedy series, "That 80s Show," which ran for one season on FOX.

In recent years, in addition to his performance as Brock in the stage play "Secret Order" and Horace in the Pasadena Playhouse production of "The Little Foxes," Pierson has made numerous guest-star appearances in several television comedies, such as "Rules of Engagement," and such dramas as "Life," "The Mentalist," "Medium," "Criminal Minds," "The West Wing," "NYPD Blue," "Veronica Mars," "Monk," "Numb3rs," "Castle," "Revenge," "In Plain Sight," and many more.

During seasons three and four of the FOX hit series "24," Pierson portrayed the role of U. S. President John Keeler. He was featured in the television movies "Poseidon" on NBC and the Hallmark Hall of Fame CBS movie "Valley of Light." He has appeared in every season of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" as Senator Walter Edge and played Deputy Chief Thomas Matthews on the Showtime series "Dexter." More recently, he had a recurring role in ABC's "Castle."

Pierson has co-starred in several independent feature films such as "Already Dead" and "Venomous," as well as co-starring in the Sundance Film Festival selections "Sleeping Dogs Lie" and "World's Greatest Dad." In other feature films, he was seen as the Vice-President in the Warner Bros. film "Get Smart" and as Dexter Sr. in "Something Borrowed." He's been in two films directed by Clint Eastwood: "Changeling," in which he co-starred in the role of crusading attorney S.S. Hahn alongside Angelina Jolie, and "J. Edgar," as A.G. Mitchell Palmer, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Pierson was also seen as Hilary Swank's father in the film "You're Not You."

After several years dividing his time between New York and Los Angeles, Pierson now makes his home in Los Angeles.
