The “In Plain Sight” star has signed with CAA. The actress starred in the USA series for five seasons as Deputy United States Marshal Mary Shannon, and before that she was featured on Aaron Sorkin’s political drama “The West Wing” as Deputy National Security Advisor Kate Harper from season 5 until the end of the series. She also starred in the short-lived NBC comedy “Welcome to the Family” opposite Mike O’Mally last year.
McCormack is also an acclaimed stage actress. She earned her first Tony nomination for her performance as a flight attendant in the 2008 Broadway production of the French play “Boeing-Boeing.” The show itself also won Best Revival of a Play for that year and it featured another “West Wing” alum: Bradley Whitford. On the features side, McCormack recently wrapped on the thriller “A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island,” written and directed by Aram Rappaport and co-starring Dianna Agron (“Glee”), AnnaSophia Robb “Bridge to Terabithia,” and Frank Grillo (“Warrior”). The film follows an ex-Wall Street business man (Grillo) who is recruited by the Secretary of the Treasury to form a rag tag task force to stop a cyber terrorist from derailing America’s economy.
She continues to be repped by Untitled Entertainment.
