Rory O'Malley stars in "Partners" on FX as Michael.

Rory O'Malley is best known for starring in the original company of "The Book of Mormon" on Broadway. He received both Tony and Drama Desk nominations for playing openly closeted Mormon Elder McKinley and performing the show stopper "Turn It Off." Most recently he was seen on stage in back-to-back off-Broadway productions at Second Stage: "Nobody Loves You" and "Little Miss Sunshine." His Broadway debut was in "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" and regionally, he created the role of Richie Cunningham in Garry Marshall's "Happy Days The Musical" for Goodspeed Opera House and Paper Mill Playhouse.

O'Malley expanded his repertoire of pasty white dudes by butchering the song "Cadillac Car" as lead singer of Dave and the Sweethearts in the Paramount Pictures film "Dreamgirls." He can also be seen on the small screen in episodes of "Nurse Jackie," "Law & Order: SVU" and "1600 Penn."

O'Malley recently premiered his autobiographical show "Pub Crawl" at Joe's Pub in New York City. The show is his tale of being raised in an Irish pub in Cleveland by his single mom and all the bar's eclectic patrons. He tells his hilarious coming-of-age story using classic Irish pub songs from The Wolftones, U2, Van Morrison and more with music direction from Tony and Grammy Award winner, Stephen Oremus.

O'Malley is a co-founder of Broadway Impact, an organization that mobilizes the theater community to take action on fighting for marriage equality. Along with Jenny Kanelos and Gavin Creel, O'Malley was there from its inception and has organized large rallies, phone banks, and theater events — all for the sake of marriage equality. Currently Broadway Impact is producing the play "8," conceived by O'Malley and edited by Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black. "8" uses the original transcript of the trial that overturned Prop 8 in California and puts it on a stage for theaters all across the country to perform and hold talkbacks. O'Malley has had the pleasure of performing around the country in the piece with many great actors and activists including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Larry Kramer, Cleve Jones and many more. Currently "8" has been produced in over 400 theaters, including in all 50 states and in 7 countries.

O'Malley lives in New York City.
