Type :  


Edward Michael Trucco is an American actor with Italian roots. He is best known for his role as Samuel T. Anders on the reimagined Battlestar Galactica and currently appears as a series regular on the USA Network television series Fairly Legal.


A native of San Mateo, California, he attended Junipero Serra High School. The son of a police officer, he was interested in being one himself until college, when he was attracted to theatrical performance. He took a theatre course for non-majors while he was studying Criminal Justice, but he did so well that he was asked to consider changing majors. He changed majors and completed his bachelor's degree in Theatre Arts at the Santa Clara University.

Trucco became active in television in the late 1990s with appearances in episodes of Touched by an Angel, Silk Stalkings, Beverly Hills, 90210, Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, and Pensacola: Wings of Gold among others. He continued appearing in shows of similar genres like CSI, Heartbeart, Strong Medicine, CSI: Miami, and others into the 2000s. He played Cooper Lee in six episodes of One Tree Hill from 2005 to 2006.

In 2002, Trucco starred in Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled.

In 2005, he joined the drama Battlestar Galactica in the role of Samuel T. Anders.

In 2008, he guest-starred on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and The Big Bang Theory.

In 2010, he guest-starred on ABC's series Castle as Detective Tom Demming.

In 2010, Trucco was cast as a series regular in the USA Network series Fairly Legal.

Trucco guest starred in an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" in 2011, and will have a recurring role. It is hinted at that Trucco may play a large part in the upcoming seasons as one of the lead characters' potential love interests and potential spouse. One day after the episode aired it was already confirmed that Trucco would play a recurring guest & appear in future episodes.

Trucco is also the lead guitarist of the band Simpleworld. He married actress (and Pensacola: Wings of Gold co-star) Sandra Hess in July 2009; they were wed in Mexico.
