American actor Greg Grunberg was born on July 11, 1966 in Los Angeles, California. He started his acting career as early as 1990, appearing in multiple guest roles on television. His screen debut saw him play a minor role in the television movie Stolen: One Husband. He had several guest appearances afterwards; these include roles in Melrose Place, Flying Blind, Baywatch, Ned and Stacey, Murphy Brown, Alright Already, Relativity and Mike Hammer, Private Eye. He made his film debut in 1993, playing a bit role in the sci-fi horror flick Future Shock.

His first major television role came in 1998, when he played the role of business-minded Sean Blumber in the television series Felicity. This marked the first of his numerous collaborations with producer J.J. Abrams, who he is a close friend of; they knew each other since kindergarten. Grunberg starred in another Abrams project in 2002 in which he played CIA field agent Eric Weiss in the spy drama Alias. Abrams also cast him for a proposed series, The Catch, where he plays the lead role of a bounty hunter. The series was never picked up by networks, although a pilot was shot. His most recent collaboration with Abrams was in Lost, where he was given a small role as the pilot of the ill-fated Oceanic Flight 815.
