Early life[edit]

1992–present: guest starring[edit]

His first onscreen appearance was on the television series The Torkelsons in 1992, where he played a jock. He appeared in small roles before appearing as a guest star in Sisters in 1993 where he played Conifer in the episode "Demons". He continued to make small appearances on television shows and movies before making his big screen debut as Billy in the George Lucas produced Radioland murders in 1994. Campbell appeared in four episodes of Christy from 1994 to 1995. Campbell continued his work in television with a multi-episode arc as EMT Riley Brown on the hit NBC drama, ER.[3]

This was followed up with more small roles in shows like Frasier, Chicago Hope and The West Wing. He was cast as a series regular for the show Nothing Sacred, but the show only lasted one season, and the five remaining episodes were never aired. Campbell later appeared in the remake of Flight of the Phoenix (2004) with Dennis Quaid, Giovanni Ribisi, the Oscar-nominated Brokeback Mountain (2005), as well as the superhero flick Push (2009) with Dakota Fanning.

In 2010, he played a recurring role as Justin Murphy on The Event.[1] In 2013, he appeared in the film A Good Day to Die Hard starring Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney. He starred in The Marriage Pact, and continued with guest starring on multiple shows, such as Resurrection, Wayward Pines and NCIS: New Orleans. Campbell guest starred in the fifth season mid-season finale of Suits where he played Father Sam Walker.[4]
