"When I started acting, my whole focus and intention was to work as a stage actor in a company where you're asked to different roles - do a comedy, do a tragedy, etc. I haven't had any reservations about jumping from one type of genre to another."

Kyle Merritt MacLachlan (/məˈɡlɑːklən/; born February 22, 1959 in Yakima, Washington) is an American actor.

A distinctive and charismatic character actor, he's skated the outskirts of stardom with critically acclaimed roles in cult films. He's a frequent collaborator with David Lynch, having starred in several works of the the weirdo visionary director including Dune, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks. Less impressively, he was in Showgirls, a film that was disastrous for everyone involved and which became an Old Shame for him.

He's become prominent on television, where his roles have varied from suburban husband with a Dark and Troubled Past Orson Hodge in Desperate Housewives to crazed superhuman Cal Zabo on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and eccentric millionaire George Van Smoot on How I Met Your Mother.
