Cross is best known for his role as CTU Agent Curtis Manning on the FOX television drama 24. His role began at the start of the show's fourth season in 2005 as a recurring character; however he later became a main cast member. For the show's sixth season, he was changed back from a main cast member to a recurring character. The motives behind this switch are apparent now as his character was reluctantly shot and killed in the fourth episode by friend Jack Bauer, as Cross' character was about to compromise the mission by killing a former terrorist for whom he held a personal grudge.

Cross can be seen in the Oliver Stone film, World Trade Center, which was released in August 2006. Cross also plays the character of Barry in the 2008 movie Mad Money. He also appears as DJ and transvestite Sunset Boulevard/Sonny Benson in the Showtime series The L Word. Cross recently appeared as prison inmate Anton Burrows in the Season 3 episode of Flashpoint, "Just a Man". As confirmed by the Geelong Advertiser on November 6, 2008, Cross has signed on to join John Schneider, John Wesley Shipp, Tania Zaetta, Jeremy Kewley, Rob Baard in the new Australian action film The Ninja entering pre-production in early 2009 and stars in Re-Kill.
