Skeet Ulrich found fame with villainous roles in seminal '90s teen horrors "The Craft" (1996) and "Scream" (1996) before landing recurring parts in "Jericho" (CBS, 2006-08), "Law & Order: LA" (NBC, 2010-11) and "Riverdale" (The CW, 2017-). Born Bryan Ray Trout in Lynchburg, VA in 1970, Skeet Ulrich had a turbulent childhood plagued by poor health and family problems. He and his older brother spent three years travelling across the country after being kidnapped by their father, while he'd also undergone heart surgery and battled pneumonia before reaching his teens. After briefly studying Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina, Ulrich transferred to New York University where he developed his acting skills in David Mamet's drama program. Ulrich made his official screen debut in anthology "CBS Schoolbreak Special" (CBS, 1980-1996) before landing major roles in two classic teen horrors, firstly ill-fated love interest Chris Hooker in supernatural tale "The Craft" (1996) and then masked serial killer Billy Loomis in Wes Craven's game-changing "Scream" (1996). In the same year Ulrich also played Sharon Stone's younger brother Billy in death row drama "Last Dance" (1996), professional baseball player Bud Valentine in boarding school mystery "Boys" (1996) and hostage Danny in Kevin Spacey's directorial debut "Albino Alligator" (1996). Ulrich then took the leading role of stigmata sufferer Juvenal in Paul Schrader's "Touch" (1997), appeared as gay hustler Vincent in Oscar favorite "As Good As It Gets" (1997) and played one of the titular bank robbers in "The Newton Boys" (1998). After showing up in Vietnam War tale "A Soldier's Sweetheart" (1998), Ulrich starred opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. in "Chill Factor" (1999), played Bushwhacker Jack Bull Chiles in Ang Lee's "Ride with the Dev" (2000) and portrayed real-life computer hacker Kevin Mitnick in "Takedown" (2000). Ulrich then added crime caper "Nobody's Baby" (2001), Alaskan adventure comedy "Chilly Dogs" (2001) and revenge thriller "Soul Assassin" (2001) to his filmography before bagging his first recurring role, investigator Paul Callan in supernatural drama "Miracles" (ABC, 2003). Sticking with the small screen, Ulrich played the romantic lead in Hallmark movie "The Magic of Ordinary Days" (2003), Jethro Wheeler in the Steven Spielberg-produced miniseries "Into the West" (TNT, 2005) and leader Jake Green in the post-apocalyptic drama "Jericho" (CBS, 2006-08) as well as voicing numerous characters in cult animation hit "Robot Chicken" (Adult Swim, 2005-). After returning to the horror genre in "For Sale by Owner" (2009), Ulrich showed up in heist movie "Armored" (2009), bagged the recurring roles of serial killer Hollis Eckhart in "CSI: NY" (CBS, 2004-2013) and Det. Rex Winters in "Law & Order: LA" (NBC, 2010-11) and starred as New Mexico cowboy Chip in "50 to 1" (2014). Following supporting roles in satire "Austin Found" (2017) and horror "Escape Room" (2017), Ulrich portrayed religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell in TV movie "I Am Elizabeth Smart" (2017) and was cast as Jughead's father FP Jones in comic book adaptation "Riverdale" (The CW, 2017-).
