Michael Beach stars in "Crisis" on NBC as FBI Director Olsen.

An accomplished actor on stage and screen, Michael Beach is perhaps best known for playing Monte Parker for all six seasons of NBC's "Third Watch" from 1999 to 2005. He more recently played the recurring roles of Harold Clemens in Lifetime's drama "The Client List," Roger Keith in BET's comedy "The Game," and T.O. Cross in FX's "Sons of Anarchy."

On the big screen, Beach is known for his menacing turn in Carl Franklin's acclaimed crime-drama "One False Move" or as Angela Bassett's cheating husband in "Waiting to Exhale." More recent films include "Hell Ride," opposite Dennis Hopper, Michael Madsen and Vinnie Jones, and "Play Dead," with Chris Klein and Fred Durst.

Beach trained for the theater at the Juilliard School in New York City. While at Juilliard, Michael performed in more than eighteen plays. He also wrote and directed a few. He's performed off-Broadway, in regional theater and in theater in Los Angeles.

Two weeks after graduation, Beach was playing opposite Wesley Snipes in "Streets of Gold" and then alongside Kevin Bacon and Holly Hunter in "End of the Line." A string of films followed, including "Suspect" with Cher and Dennis Quaid, "Lean on Me" with Morgan Freeman, "In a Shallow Grave" and "Late for Dinner."

In James Cameron's "The Abyss," he found a watery grave, then was engulfed in feathers after being shot in Tony Scott's "True Romance," and shot again when Andy Garcia and Richard Gere used him against each other in "Internal Affairs." Bill Paxton also gets the best of his outlaw character, Pluto, in the critical success "One False Move."

Beach's other film credits include "Bad Company," with Laurence Fishburne and Ellen Barkin; "White Man's Burden," with John Travolta; "Waiting to Exhale," opposite Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett; "Soul Food," starring Vanessa Williams; and "A Family Thing," with Robert Duvall and James Earl Jones.

In addition to his work in film Beach has numerous television credits, which include recurring roles in "Under Suspicion" and "ER" and appearances on "Southland," "NCIS," "The Closer," "Grey's Anatomy," "Lie to Me," "The Cleaner," "Numb3rs," "Criminal Minds," "Without a Trace," "Shark," "Brothers & Sisters," "Stargate: Atlantis," "Spawn," "Open Admissions" with Jane Alexander, "Shannon's Deal" created by John Sayles, "Gabriel's Fire."

Beach also starred in "Rebound: The Legend of Earl 'The Goat' Manigault," an HBO telefilm directed by Eriq La Salle and featuring Forest Whitaker, Don Cheadle and James Earl Jones.
