Born in Norwalk, Connecticut, Roger Bart moved with his family to Princeton, New Jersey at an early age. After graduating from Rutgers University in 1985, he was cast as Tom Sawyer in the touring company of "Big River." Two years later, Bart made his Broadway debut in the same show. Bart's first on-screen appearance came in a supporting role on "The George Carlin Show" (Fox, 1994-95) in 1994. Three years later he was the singing voice for Young Hercules in the animated film "Hercules" (1997), singing the song "Go the Distance" which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. In 1999, Bart won a Tony and a Drama Desk Award for his portrayal of Snoopy in the Broadway revival of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown." He originated the role of Carmen Ghia in the spectacularly successful Broadway adaptation of "The Producers" in 2001, and landed his first series regular role in the short-lived "Bram and Alice" (CBS, 2002). In 2005, Bart made his first appearance on "Desperate Housewives" (ABC, 2004-2012), playing the devious pharmacist George Williams, in a recurring role. He was a series regular on the mini-series "Political Animals" (USA, 2012) starring Sigourney Weaver as the Secretary of State. Another political role came his way, when he played a supporting role on "Graves" (Epix, 2016-17), starring Nick Nolte as a former President of the United States. In 2018 it was announced that Bart would be a series regular on the new show "Good Trouble" (Freeform, 2019-), a spin off from the popular series "The Fosters" (Freeform, 2013-18).
