Star of NBC’s Emmy Award-winning ensemble "The West Wing," actor Joshua Malina has the impressive distinction of having appeared in all, but one project that Aaron Sorkin has written/produced. As ‘Will Bailey’, Malina filled the slot left open by Rob Lowe’s departure in the hit drama series. He has since transitioned into the role of DC US Attorney in Shonda Rhimes ABC drama "Scandal" opposite Kerry Washington.
Upon graduation from Yale University with a B.A. degree in Theatre, Malina made his professional acting debut in the Broadway production of Sorkin’s “A Few Good Men.” He went on to star as Jeremy Goodwin in the critically acclaimed television series "Sports Night," for which he and his castmates were nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy.” Other Sorkin credits include the hit features "The American President" and "Malice."
Additional film credits include Bruno Barreto’s dark comedy for Miramax "A View From the Top" with Gwenyth Paltrow and Mike Meyers, "In the Line of Fire" with Clint Eastwood, "Bulworth" with Warren Beatty and Halle Berry, "The First Time," and "Knights of Baddassdom."
Raised in New Rochelle, NY, Malina now resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children. He and his wife recently opened the isarose floral/gift boutique in Pacific Palisades.
