Mr. Media can’t say his name, but admires actor Zeljko Ivanek’s body of work!



Zeljko Ivanek stars as Blake Sterling, Director of the CIA, who has long kept secrets from President Elias Martinez (Blair Underwood), in NBC’s new high-octane conspiracy thriller “The Event.”

In 2008, Ivanek earned a Primetime Emmy Award for his portrayal of Ray Fiske on the critically acclaimed series “Damages.” Most recently, he starred as JJ on “Big Love.” His other notable television work includes the miniseries “John Adams,” recurring roles on “Heroes,” “Homicide: Life on the Streets,” “24,” “True Blood” and “Oz,” as well as numerous guest appearances.

In addition, Ivanek is also a veteran of over 20 feature films including In Bruges, Live Free or Die Hard, The Hoax, Dogville, Unfaithful, Black Hawk Down, Hannibal, Dancer in the Dark, A Civil Action and Donnie Brasco, to name a few.

Ivanek’s many stage credits have earned him three Tony nominations and a Drama Desk Award. His theater resume includes American, U.K., and world premieres of works by Martin McDonagh, Neil LaBute, Athol Fugard, Neil Simon, Richard Nelson, Caryl Churchill and David Hare, as well as Peter Brook’s production of “The Cherry Orchard.”

Ivanek is a graduate of Yale University and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
