Why You Should Ask For What You Want
Michael Urie is a native Texan who was active in Speech & Drama all through high school. He trained in theatre studies at Collin County Community College before being accepted at the Julliard School where he was the recipient of the John Houseman prize for excellence in classical theater. In 2006, Urie joined the cast of ABC’s dramedy UGLY BETTY, appearing as Marc St. James, the assistant of Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams). Twice he and the cast were nominated for Screen Actors Guild awards for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Urie has also appeared regularly on other hit shows such as YOUNGER, PARTNERS, and THE GOOD WIFE, and THE GOOD FIGHT.
He’s returned often to his theater roots, making a Broadway debut in the second revival of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. His performance in the one-man show BUYER & CELLER won him a Clarence Derwent Award and Drama Desk Award. Additional theater credits include TORCH SONG on Broadway, THE TEMPERAMENTALS, and HAMLET with the Shakespeare Theatre Company.
Urie will soon be teaming up with his UGLY BETTY co-star Becki Newton on FUN, a sitcom for CBS and WARNER BROS TV. And most recently Urie participated in a live stream reading of NORA HIGHLAND by Ryan Spahn, which benefited Broadway Cares COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund and Covenant House New York.
