Kelly AuCoin (born 1967) is an American actor who has appeared in film, television and theater. He has appeared in several American television series, including recurring the roles Pastor Tim on The Americans and Gary Stamper on House of Cards. He has had supporting roles in the films The Kingdom, Julie & Julia, and the SXSW Ensemble Acting Award winning All That I Am.
AuCoin was born in the Portland, Oregon suburb of Hillsboro, the son of Les and Susan AuCoin, and grew up in Oregon and Washington, D.C., where his father served as a United States Congressman from 1975 to 1993. His first appearance on television was in one of his father's campaign commercials, in which he countered claims that his father was a tax-and-spend Democrat by humorously describing how cheap his father actually was. AuCoin is a graduate of Georgetown Day School and Oberlin College.
AuCoin was a member of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival acting company in the early 1990s. After relocating to New York, AuCoin landed small roles in several soap operas, including Guiding Light and The City. In the early 2000s, he appeared in episodes of The Sopranos and Law & Order. AuCoin has more recently appeared in other television series, such as Madam Secretary', House of Cards, The Americans, Unforgettable, Person of Interest, The Following, Elementary, The Good Wife, White Collar, Gossip Girl, Body Of Proof, Blue Bloods, and Without A Trace, among others. He played the regular recurring role of Peter Keatch in the CBS series Waterfront, which was cancelled before ever airing, despite having shot five episodes. He will be seen in the NBC miniseries The Slap', and the Showtime pilot "Billions'.
In 2005, he appeared as the young Octavius in a Broadway revival of Julius Caesar, which starred Denzel Washington. AuCoin has appeared in numerous other Off Broadway stage productions, including 2008's premiere of Ernest Hemingway's The Fifth Column, 2009's Jailbait, by Deirdre O'Connor, directed by Suzanne Agins, 2010's Happy Now?, by Lucinda Coxon, 2012's LAByrinth Theater Company premiere of Radiance, by Cusi Cram, also directed by Suzanne Agins, and, in 2013, the world premiere of Tanya Barfield's The Call, directed by Leigh Silverman in a joint production by Primary Stages and Playwrights Horizons. He recently starred in two La Jolla Playhouse productions; J.T. Rogers' Blood And Gifts, directed by Lucie Tiberghien, and Arthur Kopit and Anton Dudley's world premier A Dram Of Drummhicit, directed by Christopher Ashley.
His first major film role came in 2007, where he played State Department official Ellis Leach in The Kingdom. In 2009's Julie & Julia, AuCoin played one of the executives for the Houghton Mifflin publishing company who declined to publish Julia Child's soon-to-be-legendary cookbook.
