Michael Ealy stars in "Common Law" on USA Network as Travis Marks.

From his breakout role in "Barbershop" and "Barbershop 2," Michael Ealy is quickly rising through the ranks as one of Hollywood's leading young actors. Ealy most recently had recurring roles in Showtime's "Californication," playing Natascha McElhone's love interest on the show; CBS's "The Good Wife," as Derrick Bond; and ABC's "FlashForward" where he portrayed CIA agent Marshall Vogel who becomes more involved with the Mosaic investigation (which examines the cause of a blackout that effected people globally).

Previously, Ealy starred in the heist film "Takers," opposite Paul Walker and Matt Dillon, and Sony Pictures' "Seven Pounds," opposite Will Smith. Smith personally selected Ealy to play the pivotal role of Smith's younger brother in this dark drama. Ealy also starred in Spike Lee's World War II drama "The Miracle at St. Anna," which portrayed the story of four buffalo soldiers who risk their lives to save a young, Italian boy, while in enemy territory. Ealy was also featured in the documentary miniseries, "The People Speak," based on Howard Zinn's acclaimed book. One of the historical figures he portrays is "Malcolm X." Other star-studded performances include Matt Damon, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Don Cheadle, to name a few.

On television, Ealy starred in the Showtime miniseries "Sleeper Cell" where he portrayed Darwyn, a Muslim FBI agent sent undercover to infiltrate a terrorist cell in Los Angeles. "Sleeper Cell" quickly went on to receive a Golden Globe nomination for Best Miniseries and an AFI Honor for Best Program of the Year and Ealy also earned a nomination for a Golden Globe for his lead performance in the miniseries.

In addition, Ealy was handpicked by Oprah Winfrey to star opposite Halle Berry in the ABC and Harpo Films telepic, "Their Eyes Were Watching God." The special received rave reviews and was viewed by over 26 million people. Ealy earned an NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding Actor in a Television Movie, Mini-Series or Dramatic Special for his portrayal of "Teacake." Ealy also starred in a Sundance selection: the film noir, "Never Die Alone," opposite DMX, for Fox Searchlight Pictures.

A native of Silver Spring, Maryland, Ealy graduated college with a degree in English. Shortly after, he headed to New York where he performed in several stage productions, including the off-Broadway hits "Joe Fearless" and "Whoa Jack," for which he earned an Adelco Award nomination for his performance.
