Born and raised in San Mateo, California, Trucco graduated with a B.A. in Theatre Arts and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for a couple of years until the desire to reach for bigger parts drove him to Los Angeles. Trucco appeared in six plays over the next two years, but it was his appearance in “A Few Good Men" that caught the attention of a talent manager and thus began his upward climb in film and television.
Today, Trucco is best known for his portrayal of Samuel Anders in three seasons of “Battlestar Galactica.” Most recently, he starred in a multi-episode arc as Detective Tom Demming on ABC’s “Castle.”
A recurring role as Josh Hunter on The CW’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” brought Trucco the recognition he sought. That was followed by two seasons as Lt. Tucker “Spoon” Henry on “Pensacola: Wings of Gold” starring James Brolin. Trucco has guest-starred and recurred on numerous series including The CW’s “One Tree Hill,” NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU,” and CBS series “How I Met Your Mother,”“The Big Bang Theory” and “CSI.” Michael can currently be seen as Billy Parker on ABC’s “Killer Women.”
