A frequent guest star who played a wide variety of characters on popular television shows, actor Michael Jace finally received his due as the spiritual, but closeted homosexual police officer Julien Lowe on Shawn Ryan's hard-hitting cop show "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08). While surrounded by criminals and corruption on all side, Jace's character brought a sense of noble inner turmoil to a show celebrated for its edgy external conflicts. Prior to "The Shield," Jace played a diversity of characters on shows like "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010) and "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (syndicated, 1993-99), while breaking into features with parts in "Forrest Gump" (1994), "Strange Days" (1995) and "Boogie Nights" (2001). He gained a degree of stardom thanks to playing NBA icon Michael Jordan in the TV movie, "Michael Jordan: An American Hero" (Fox Family Channel, 1999), but became a known commodity following his seven seasons on "The Shield." After the show finished its run in 2008, Jace went back to guest turns on shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000- ), "Burn Notice" (USA Network, 2007- ) and "The Mentalist" (CBS, 2008- ), while continuing to look for that one role that could propel his career to the next level.
