BIOGRAPHY:

A native of the Chicago suburb of Wilmette, Illinois, Moffett never gave a thought to acting until after he graduated from Stanford University with a degree in International Relations. While he went to work at Chicago's Continental Bank, he also enrolled in an acting class to broaden his artistic horizon and, more importantly, to meet girls. He found a social life and his life's work.

Moving along his new career path, Moffett became a founding member of Chicago's Remains Theatre Ensemble, where he starred in, directed and/or produced over 40 productions. He first came to national attention starring in Larry Kramer's landmark AIDS drama The Normal Heart at New York's Public Theatre. Subsequently, he appeared on Broadway in The Boys of Winter and The Real Thing, as well as a Los Angeles production of Jon Robin Baitz's The End of the Day. In his most recent return to the stage, Moffett was invited to play opposite 'Kevin Spacey' in the critically acclaimed production of The Philadelphia Story at the Old Vic in London in 2005.

On television, he starred in NBC's made-for-television film adaptation of Danielle Steel's novel Fine Things (1990) alongside 'Tracy Pollan'. From 1998 to 2002, he was a main cast member on the NBC (later WB) sitcom For Your Love. He played Bob Hardy in the series Hidden Palms for the CW Network and starred in the 2007 CW series Life Is Wild as Dr. Danny Clarke. He then co-starred in the NBC drama Friday Night Lights. Since 2011, Moffett has been cast in the series Happily Divorced as Elliot, an on/off love interest of the main character played by 'Fran Drescher'. He also plays as John Kennish: Bay's and Toby's father and Daphne's biological father, in the ABC Family series Switched at Birth. He was also in the "Naked Brother's Band" playing as the elementary school principal.
