Biography

Connecticut native Daniel Cosgrove showed a propensity for soap operas when he began his acting career in 1996, with a prominent role on the long-running soap All My Children. Being cast in the series meant relocating to New York, but two years later he made an even bigger move when he headed to L.A. for a part in another drama, this time a night-time soap: Beverly Hills 90210. He stayed with the show for two years before moving on to pursue a variety of film roles, including the villainous Richard Bagg in National Lampoon's Van Wilder, but soon Cosgrove went back to his roots with a role on another popular daytime soap, Guiding Light. He played Harlan Billy Lewis III on the series from 2002 to 2007, when he left the show for the ABC prime-time drama Dirty Sexy Money, playing the recurring role of Freddy Mason, pro-golfer and financé of divorcée Karen Darling (Natalie Zea). ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
