Mark Moses (born February 24, 1958) is an American actor. He appeared in Mad Men as Herman Phillips as a regular in Season 2 and guest starred in Season 3. He has made 2 appearances in the Season 4, Waldorf Stories and The Suitcase.

Personal Life

Moses was born in New York City, the brother of actor and singer Burke Moses.


Moses has appeared in a number of films by director Oliver Stone, such as Platoon, The Doors, and Born on the Fourth of July.

As a character actor with appearances on projects ranging as diverse as Big Momma's House 2, Platoon and Star Trek: Enterprise, Moses was always reliably employed, but never became a household name.

This changed in 2004, when Moses was cast in the role of Paul Young on the hit ABC dramedy Desperate Housewives (2004-07). As the disturbed husband of the deceased (suicide victim) Mary Alice Young, Moses played one of the pivotal figures in the show's original main mystery.

Moses played the title character, "a Wall Street creep", in a 2006 Off-Broadway play called Burleigh Grimes (which has nothing to do with the baseball player of the same name).

Moses currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Annie LaRussa and their two sons. He has a brief appearance in the 2008 film Swing Vote, starring Kevin Costner.

In 2010, Moses re-joined Desperate Housewives and is set to reprise his role as Paul Young in the Season 6 finale, and as a regular in Season 7.
