Michael "Mike" Doyle (born September 16, 1972)[1] is an American actor, screenwriter, director and producer. He may be best known for his role on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Ryan O'Halloran.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Doyle attended the Juilliard School as a member of the Drama Division's Group 27 (1994–1998).[2]

On the set of Oz Doyle met George Morfogen, whom he would cast in Shiner, a short film written, produced and directed by Doyle that debuted at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. Doyle also wrote and produced the 2003 limited-release film Cutter.

Doyle played Lt. Cmdr. Tom Palatonio in the 2005 action film Phantom Below, which is notable for having been released in multiple versions under multiple names which included or excluded gay content depending on the edit (the gay-themed edit was released under the title Tides of War). His death in the season 10 finale of Law & Order Special Victims Unit ended a successful six-year run as forensic tech Ryan O'Halloran on the show. He guest starred on episodes of Criminal Minds[3] and In Plain Sight.[4]

He appeared alongside Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in 2010's Rabbit Hole. In 2011, the feature film Union Square, co-written and directed by Sundance Film Festival's Grand Jury Award Winner Nancy Savoca, was premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, which starred Mira Sorvino, Patti Lupone, Michael Rispoli and Tammy Blanchard.[5] He also starred in The Orphan Killer as Marcus Miller Sr. in 2011. He then joined the cast of A Gifted Man as Victor Lantz, an anesthesiologist. He had a recurring role in the 2012 ABC television series 666 Park Avenue.[6]

In 2014, he portrayed songwriter and record producer Bob Crewe in the film of the hit musical Jersey Boys, based on the story of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons.[7] He also appeared in the music video "I Wanna Get Better" by Jack Antonoff's band Bleachers, alongside Retta.
