A former Calvin Klein model who successfully made the transition to acting, darkly handsome Glenn Fitzgerald has amassed a varied and intriguing resume of character roles. Virtually unrecognizable from film to film, the Brooklyn native began his acting career with an appearance in the 1995 pilot to the short-lived CBS series "New York News" and subsequently made two guest appearances on "Law & Order" as well as played a regular role on the short-lived CBS drama "Matt Waters" (1996). On the big screen, Fitzgerald made his debut in a supporting role in the Sundance-screened "Manny & Lo" (1996) but really first made an impression as the sullen, LSD-proffering son of Alan Alda and Lily Tomlin in the comedy "Flirting With Disaster" the same year. He was back at Sundance as the unnamed cowboy hero of the quirky "Rhinoceros Hunting in Budapest" in 1997 and later offered a memorable turn as the handsome young object of Sigourney Weaver's attention at a spouse-swapping party in the 70s-set "The Ice Storm."
After working on a pair of short films ("Number One Fan" 1997 and "Second Skin" 1998), Fitzgerald landed the high profile role of a Hassidic scholar whose wife (Renee Zellweger) harbors desires beyond the community in "A Price Above Rubies" (1998). He had a pivotal role as a co-worker with romantic designs on Olivia Williams in the Oscar-nominated Best Picture "The Sixth Sense" (1999) and delivered a nicely nuanced turn as the sensitive younger son of a farmer struggling to hold on to his property in "What Happened to Tully/The Truth About Tully" (2000). In "Finding Forrester" (also 2000), Fitzgerald was cast as an aide who delivers groceries and other sundries to a reclusive man he does not realize is a well-known author. The actor was back at Sundance in 2001 with two high profile independents: the award-winning "The Believer" and "Series 7." In the former, he was a neo-Nazi who carries out an assassination, while the latter offered Fitzgerald his richest role (to date) as a cancer survivor with a death wish selected to participate in a reality-based TV show where it is literally kill or be killed.
