Though Michael Cudlitz was born in Long Island, his family soon moved to Lakewood Township, New Jersey where he was raised. Having expressed an interest in acting from a young age, he went on to study at the California Institute of the Arts after his gmatriculation from Lakewood High School. He supported himself during that time by doing construction and carpentry work on Hollywood sets, and even after his big break in acting, he continued to work as construction coordinator on the set of “Beverly Hills, 90210” from 1990 to 1993. He graduated from college in 1990, and around this time he took his first steps as an actor. He guest-starred in several popular TV shows, such as “21 Jump Street” (1991) with Johnny Depp, “Growing Pains” (1991-1992) with Kirk Cameron, and he even appeared in eleven episodes of “Beverly Hills, 90210” (1992-1993), this time in front of the cameras. His net worth was finally moving, upwards.

During the 1990s, he mostly became known as an episodic television actor, appearing in several more hit series, such as “ER” (1996), “NYPD Blue” (1998), and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1999). However, he simultaneously pursued a career in film, securing parts in the biographical film about Bruce Lee entitled “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story” (1993), followed by the 1996 comedy “D3: The Mighty Ducks”, and comedy drama “Grosse Pointe Blank” (1999).

The turn of the century brought Cudlitz international fame and critical acclaim, with the starring role in the award-winning WWII drama “Band of Brothers” (2001) as Sergeant Denver “Bull” Randleman in nine episodes of the miniseries, appearing alongside Damien Lewis, Ron Livingston, and Donnie Wahlberg. Afterwards, he continued to successfully guest-star in numerous popular TV shows, with an occasional appearance in a TV movie, or on the big screen. Some of his credits include “The Practice” (2002), “Nip/Tuck” (2004), and “Bones” (2007). He also had recurring roles in the action series “24” (2002-2003) and in “Prison Break” (2005). His career took off again when he joined the cast of the crime drama “Southland” (2009-2013), which increased his net worth significantly, and was praised by critics, particularly Cudlitz’s portrayal of a police officer who was hiding his homosexuality.

Soon after the cancelation of “Southland”, he landed another big role, this time in the post-apocalyptic horror drama “The Walking Dead” (2014-2016). His character, Sgt. Abraham Ford, was first recurring during the fourth season of the show, but he soon became a fan favorite, and joined the main cast for seasons five and six. Most recently, Cudlitz appeared in the HBO comedy drama “Ballers” (2015) and TV movie “The Trustee”, scheduled to be released in 2017. Apart from his work on film and television, he did voice acting in five installations of the “Call of Duty” video game franchise (2005-2011).

Regarding his personal life, Michael is married to Rachel Cudlitz, with whom he has twin sons.

Cudlitz is a big proponent of healthy lifestyle, and particularly exercise, though he is open about how difficult it was for him when he first took up gym. He also enjoys the carpeting and construction work he did prior to his acting career
