Troy Garity stars in NBC's "The Playboy Club," as John Bianchi, and Starz' "Boss," as Ezra Stone.

Troy Garity garnered the opportunity to portray his father, Senator Tom Hayden, in the Abbie Hoffman biopic "Steal This Movie" alongside Vincent D'Onofrio and Janeane Garofalo.

Showtime's critically hailed "Soldier's Girl" garnered Garity both a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor, as well as a nod for an Independent Spirit Award. The film, which screened to a standing ovation at Sundance, depicts the true story of a soldier (Barry Winchell) murdered by his company members for falling in love with a transsexual. This growing recognition appears to have Garity moving in the direction of his legendary mother, actress Jane Fonda. He has since starred in a succession of dramatic features including Danny Boyle's "Sunshine," alongside Cillian Murphy, "Lake City," opposite Sissy Spacek, Eichmann with Franka Potente, "Fragments" with the likes of Forest Whitaker and Dakota Fanning, and "Mercy" from writer and co-star Scott Caan. Garity also appeared in the comedy "My One and Only" with Renee Zellweger and has since completed work on "A Day in the Life" with Mekhi Phifer, "3 Ride to Kerosene Cowboys" with Cam Gigandet and Bill Pullman, as well as "The Good Doctor" with Orlando Bloom.

In MGM's "Bandits," Garity created his own niche within his acclaimed acting family, starring for director Barry Levinson alongside Bruce Willis, Cate Blanchett, and Billy Bob Thornton. Garity also starred alongside Ice Cube and Eve in the hit ensemble comedy "Barbershop" for MGM. The sequel was equally successful. Garity also appeared in Brett Ratner's New Line caper, "After the Sunset."

Additional credits include the recent independent feature "Milwaukee, Minnesota" in which he portrays an idiot savant ice fisherman, Michael Rymer's Sundance entry "Perfume," which offers an improvisational look into the fashion industry, Richard Donner's "Conspiracy Theory" with Julia Roberts and Mel Gibson, as well as the lead in director Rafal Zelinski's "Bohemia."

Over the years, Garity has worked to hone his craft, having spent his childhood performing comedia del arte at The Laurel Springs Camp for the Arts in Santa Barbara, followed by a move to New York where he trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. He eventually became an Academy Repertory Company Player, appearing in nearly a dozen stage productions.

Garity briefly switched gears to direct his first music video that premiered at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.

Currently residing in Los Angeles, Garity, like his parents, is also a staunch political activist, and actively works with the Peace Process Network that is a worldwide gang violence prevention coalition.
