Having appeared in scores of films and television projects since the 1980s, actor Bruce Greenwood spent decades in smaller roles before finally receiving his due as President John F. Kennedy in the nail-biting docudrama "13 Days" (2000). Prior to the high-profile turn, Greenwood had worked steadily throughout the years on television and in features, first in his native Canada and later in Hollywood. He had numerous guest spots and recurring roles on popular shows like "St. Elsewhere" (NBC, 1982-1988) and "Knots Landing" (CBS, 1979-1993), while finally gaining recognition on the big screen with the acclaimed indie "The Sweet Hereafter" (1997). After "13 Days," Greenwood's career took off, as he landed supporting parts in major movies like "Hollywood Homicide" (2003), "Being Julia" (2004), "I, Robot" (2004) and "Déjà Vu" (2006). Returning to television, he starred as a surf bum father in David Milch's exceptionally weird and short-lived "John From Cincinnati" (HBO, 2007), while playing Truman Capote's long-term companion Jack Dunphy in "Capote" (2005). After playing the president in "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" (2007), he portrayed Captain Pike of the U.S.S. Enterprise in J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" (2009) and its follow-up "Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013), while working steadily in television in acclaimed series including "Mad Men" (AMC 2007-2015) and "American Crime Story" (FX 2016- ). Regardless of the role, whether leading or supporting, Greenwood was a steady presence who brought gravitas and a wealth of talent to his performance.
