Recently, he appeared in four episodes of the critically-acclaimed television series "Suits," opposite Gabriel Macht and Patrick Adams.

Prior to his longtime series work, Close starred in the series "The Magnificent Seven," "Dark Skies" and "McKenna," while taking on such long-form features as "Seven Deadly Sins," "Hercules," "Follow the Stars Home," "The Stranger Beside Me," "Long Island Fever," "Without Consent" and "Unanswered Prayers," which was produced by Garth Brooks and based on his hit song of the same title. Close was also in the Golden Globe-nominated miniseries "Taken," executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, and his feature credits include "Saving Angelo," "Alvarez & Cruz," "Liberty Maine," "The Sky is Falling," "Taking Liberty" and "American Me." Most recently, he worked with Bradley Cooper in "American Sniper" directed by Clint Eastwood.

Close graduated with a BA in communications from the University of Southern California in 1989. He married his wife, Keri, in 1995 and has two daughters. He and his family love philanthropy and traveling the world. Close is a sportsman, preferring outdoor sports such as rock climbing, snow skiing, tennis, golf, sailing, surfing, scuba diving and fly-fishing. He also enjoys reading historical fiction.
