Type :  

  Summary  

Alan Rosenberg is an American actor of both stage and screen. From 2005 to 2009, he was president of the Screen Actors Guild, the principal motion picture industry on-screen performers' union.

  Biography  

 early life
Rosenberg was born and raised in Passaic, New Jersey. Alan's late brother, Mark, was a political activist in the 1960s, later a film producer; while his first cousin is musician Donald Fagen.

Alan's parents gave him money to apply to graduate school. Rosenberg said on graduating in 1972 from Case Western Reserve University, that he found another passion, poker, and had gambled away most of the money his parents sent him, and could only afford one application to Yale School of Drama. Rosenberg dropped out halfway through his second year, after his heart was broken by classmate Meryl Streep.

 career
Rosenberg is perhaps best known for his character Eli Levinson which appeared in both the series Civil Wars and the popular L.A. Law. In 1979, he appeared in the movie The Wanderers, as Turkey. He is also well known for his character Ira Woodbine in the sitcom Cybill. More recently he was seen in the legal drama The Guardian as Alvin Masterson.

Rosenberg supplied the voice of the bounty hunter Boba Fett on NPR's adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back. Rosenberg is also known for his appearance as the crazed "Mad Bomber" in the 1986 cult-classic Stewardess School and Paul Bartel's screwball comedy Not for Publication opposite Nancy Allen .

In 1995, he received an Emmy Award nomination for a guest-starring role in the hit drama ER. He starred in the Temptations miniseries in 1998, as long-time manager Shelly Berger.

In 1999, he began a recurring role as the hospital legal counsel, Stuart Brickman, on Chicago Hope. Halfway through their final season he was added to the opening titles as a series regular.

He appeared on Broadway in What's Wrong With This Picture and Lost In Yonkers, and off-Broadway in Isn't It Romantic, A Prayer For My Daughter, and Kid Champion. He most recently starred at the Delaware Theatre Company production of Partners, written by Allan Katz.

He was elected the 24th president of Screen Actors Guild on September 23, 2005. Rosenberg succeeded Melissa Gilbert, who served as president since 2001 and chose not to run for a third two-year term. Rosenberg received 39.99 percent of the nationwide vote of the Guild’s general membership, defeating Morgan Fairchild and Robert Conrad.

In 2005, he appeared as shady defense attorney Adam Novak in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation co-starring alongside his real life wife Marg Helgenberger. Novak was portrayed as a womanizer who encountered Catherine in a bar and later became the prime suspect in two homicides. He appeared once again in the 2007 episode "Leaving Las Vegas" as a lawyer defending a client who turned out to be guilty of two separate crimes, and yet the evidence failed to pin him down, resulting in a not guilty verdict which annoyed Catherine so much that she began to undergo further investigation.

In 2006, he appeared in a very small part as Bruce Steinerman, the divorce attorney of James Wilson in the TV-series House, M.D., adding yet another legal character to his CV.

In 2007, he started hosting a Public Television program, Life: Part 2, produced in St. Paul, Minnesota. He moderates panel discussions about issues that baby boomers face as they age.

 personal life
Originally married to actress Robin Bartlett, Rosenberg met Marg Helgenberger in New York in 1984, while guest-starring on her soap Ryan's Hope. The two became friends and started dating in 1986. They married in 1989 and have one son, Hugh Howard Rosenberg . On December 1, 2008, Rosenberg and Helgenberger announced their separation.
On March 25, 2009, Helgenberger filed for divorce.
