Chris stars as blind CIA operative, Auggie Anderson, in USA Network’s hit original series COVERT AFFAIRS.
Over the last couple of years, he has been very engaged with a variety of social media platforms, including USA’s Character Chatter, Twitter and Facebook. Most recently, he was the first to tweet under Glamour magazine’s Twitter handle @glamourmag for the midseason return of Covert Affairs. During the recent midseason of the show, Gorham directed and produced Globe Tracker which highlights the international nature of the show through video and photos he shot on location. He engaged the show’s fans through the Covert Affairs Tweetcast: Mission Budapest, a six week interactive episode that unfolded over Twitter in real time.
Gorham is known for his starring role on ABC’s Ugly Betty as Betty’s accountant boyfriend, the endearing “Henry.” He then transitioned into the role of a cold-blooded serial killer in the Jon Turteltaub produced CBS Series Harper’s Island. Gorham adeptly turned leading man on the acclaimed action-adventure drama series Jake 2.0 where he starred as Jake Foley. Gorham was also a series regular on the NBC comedy Out of Practice opposite Henry Winkler, Ty Burrell, Stockard Channing and Jennifer Tilly. Additional series regular television credits include Medical Investigation, Odyssey 5 and Ryan Murphy’s Popular.
Most recently, Gorham starred alongside Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson and Terrence Howard in The Ledge which competed in the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Gorham has completed starring roles in three other independent films last year; Answer This! with Arielle Kebbel and Chris Parnell, My Girlfriend's Boyfriend with Alyssa Milano, and Somebody's Hero.
In addition to having Chris live and in-person at the event, TVnext will also feature pre-recorded messages from Piers Morgan and Carson Daly – AND we have a phenomenal lineup of television industry execs.
