Educated Actors by Egantx7

Question 12

This guy earned his BA in English literature from Princeton and his MA in English literature from Yale. An award winning poet at Yale, his acting career started as a break from his Yale PhD (ironically, a thesis entitled Magic and Technology in Contemporary Poetry and Prose). His first role was as a friend of Melanie Griffith's Tess character in the Oscar nominated Working Girl, and 2017 will see him reprise his first notable role, that of agent Dennis/Denise Bryson. Given his sex addiction problems, taking long term roles in Showtime's Red Shoe Diaries and Californication seemed a bit odd. Identify this actor who played a hand model in Zoolander, and also spent a few years playing an FBI agent with a basement office at the J. Edgar Hoover Building.
