Michael Anthony Beach (born October 30, 1963) is an American actor.[1]

Early life[edit]

Beach was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, of Cape Verdean descent. He attended the prestigious Noble & Greenough School in Dedham, Massachusetts on scholarship from ABC (A Better Chance). He was introduced to acting when he was sidelined by a lacrosse injury during high school by a classmate. After high school he went on to graduate from New York City's Juilliard School, and performed in many off-Broadway and regional theater plays before starring in Los Angeles theater productions of Ascension Day and Much Ado About Nothing, and eventually breaking into film and television.

Career[edit]

Beach is perhaps best known for portraying FDNY paramedic Monte 'Doc' Parker on the NBC drama Third Watch, and for his recurring role as Al Boulet, the ex-husband of physician assistant Jeanie Boulet on the NBC medical drama ER. More recently, he has been known for his recurring role as Colonel Ellis in Stargate Atlantis.

A father of four, Beach resides in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Elisha Wilson-Beach.[citation needed]
