Michael is best known for his five seasons as Maury Levy on HBO’s legendary hit series, 

The Wire, and for his long list of television credits, reflecting a wide variety of styles, from the broadly comedic to the dramatically subtle, and a wide range of characters, from icy lawyers to caring teachers, from hyper TV execs to swishy florists, and even a reckless, long-haired, tattooed, Southern ex-con.


On stage, he’s played that slimy, sleazy Max Bialystock in The Producers; the comically evil “Master of the House” Thenardier in Les Miserablessad-sack comedy writer Milt Fields in Laughter on the 23rd Floor, as well as a high-strung opera manager, a former Cuban drag queen,  a mousy boss, a bitter gardener, and the sweetest would-be murderer you could ever hope to meet.
