Born in Hackettstown, NJ, but raised in Springfield, OR, actor Eric Millegan cut his teeth on the boards in a Eugene Opera production of Amahl and the Night Visitors back in 1981 and never looked back. Later, after appearing in such subsequent Eugene Opera productions as La Boheme and Madame Butterfly, the rising stage star set out to try his luck on the New York stage and landed a role in the Broadway revival of Jesus Christ Superstar.
While it was on the stage that the Interlochen Arts Camp alumnus and University of Michigan graduate received the lion's share of his acting experience, by the early 2000s he was looking to branch out and began appearing on screens both large and small. Early television roles on 100 Centre Street, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and Curb Your Enthusiasm found his popularity growing at an impressive rate, with parts in the films On_Line and The Phobic serving well to establish his indie film credibility. In 2005 Millegan joined the cast of Fox television's forensics crime series Bones as geeky grad assistant Zack Addy.
