Kyle MacLachlan is an actor who has brought indelible charm and a quirky sophistication to some of film and television's most memorable roles.  Kyle MacLachlan has recently joined the cast of ABC's "Desperate Housewives," playing Dr. Orson Hodge, Bree's (Marcia Cross) charming new husband who is a dentist with a hidden agenda. Last season,  MacLachlan could be seen on "In Justice" for ABC, playing David Swain, the enigmatic head of an investigation agency specializing in solving cases of the wrongly convicted.

On the small screen, MacLachlan starred in Hallmark's treatment of Jules Verne's classic, "Mysterious Island," with co-stars Patrick Stewart and Gabrielle Anwar.  MacLachlan is perhaps best known for his performance as FBI Agent Dale Cooper in David Lynch's ground breaking series, "Twin Peaks," for which he received two Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe Award.  MacLachlan also starred for two seasons on HBO's highly successful comedy series, "Sex and the City," as Charlotte's ideal man, Dr. Trey MacDougal.

MacLachlan recently played 'the spirit of Cary Grant' in Sony Pictures Classics' "Touch of Pink." The New York Times praised his performance: "The real touch of class in 'Touch of Pink'... is MacLachlan's dead-on impersonation of Cary Grant... dropping pallid witticisms in Grant's signature staccato style with just the right accent, Mr. MacLachlan finds an easy balance between affectionate imitation and amusing parody."

This past December, MacLachlan returned to television in the limited adventure series "The Librarian: Quest for the Spear," as charming bad guy Edward Wilde, produced by Dean Devlin for TNT and co-starring Noah Wyle and Bob Newhart.

In the Fall of 2003,  MacLachlan made his Broadway debut as Aston in Harold Pinter's "The Caretaker," starring with Patrick Stewart and Aidan Gillen. Directed by David Jones for the Roundabout Theatre Company, the play was nominated for Best Revival of a Play by the Outer Critics Circle.  MacLachlan made his London stage debut in the Fall of 2002 in "On an Average Day" on the West End, starring with Woody Harrelson. The story revolves around troubled brothers who reunite with explosive consequences. Directed by John Crowley, the play returned  MacLachlan to his theater roots after a 14-year absence.

MacLachlan made his feature film debut in the futuristic drama "Dune," directed by David Lynch. This was followed by his second collaboration with Lynch in "Blue Velvet." He starred alongside Ethan Hawke in Miramax's "Hamlet" (2000), directed by Michael Almeryeda, with MacLachlan portraying Claudius, Hamlet's stepfather, in a cast that included Bill Murray, Julia Stiles and Sam Shepard.

MacLachlan was also featured in Mike Figgis' experimental "Timecode," which was the first film of its kind—shot with four digital cameras simultaneously in one continuous 93-minute take—and worked with Figgis again in "One Night Stand," with Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey, Jr.  MacLachlan portrayed legendary keyboardist Ray Manzarek in "The Doors," directed by Oliver Stone and starring Val Kilmer and Meg Ryan, and starred as Josef K in Kafka's "The Trial," adapted by Harold Pinter and featuring Anthony Hopkins.

MacLachlan's other work includes "The Trigger Effect," co-starring Elizabeth Shue and Dermot Mulroney, "The Flintstones," produced by Steven Spielberg, Paul Verhoeven's controversial "Showgirls" and Bruce Beresford's "Rich in Love," with Albert Finney and Jill Clayburg and produced by Richard and Lili Zanuck. MacLachlan starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in HBO's award-winning film, "Against the Wall," the story of the 1971 Attica prison riots, which was directed by the late John Frankenheimer, and in the Showtime original film "Roswell," based on the infamous story of an alleged UFO sighting in 1947 near Roswell, New Mexico.

MacLachlan made his directorial debut in 1993 with an episode of the darkly comic HBO hit series, "Tales from the Crypt."
