 early life
Culp was born in La Jolla, San Diego, California to a naval officer father. During his childhood, his parents divorced and his mother, Ohio-born Mary Ann Joseph, re-married John Raymond Grabinsky. Culp attended First Colonial High School in Virginia. He graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1978 with a major in English literature and also studied at the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom. He earned an MFA from Brandeis University in 1981.

Culp can be seen in one of his earliest roles as Robert Campbell in Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday . He plays a reporter looking into the Jason murders. Culp is known for his recurring roles as CIA Agent Clayton Webb on JAG (1997–2004) and Major Hayes on Star Trek: Enterprise (2003–2004). He had the unusual misfortune to have both of those characters killed off in the same week, in the shows' season finales . During the year 2004, Steven became the first actor to appear as a recurring character in four television series simultaneously: The West Wing, Star Trek: Enterprise, JAG and ER.

Culp has played Robert F. Kennedy twice; in the film Thirteen Days and previously in the TV movie Norma Jean & Marilyn . He also played Commander Martin Madden in Star Trek Nemesis , a character written to replace William Riker as Enterprise first officer. However, due to the film running too long, Culp's scenes were cut from the final film, so Madden can now only be seen in the Nemesis DVD deleted scenes. In the third season of Star Trek: Enterprise, Culp played the recurring character Major Hayes, leader of the M.A.C.O.s. He was in five episodes; "The Xindi", "The Shipment", "Harbinger", "Hatchery" and "Countdown", where Hayes was shot saving a fellow crewmember.

Other performances include playing the leading role of the photographer Richard Stewart in the English as a Second Language educational video series Family Album, U.S.A. He also had a role as antagonist Peter Drummond in the campy television movie How to Make a Monster, in which nerdy computer game programmers accidentally give life to a deadly AI. Members of the software company take turns attempting to beat the game in order save their own lives. He played Rex Van de Kamp, husband of perfectionist Bree Van de Kamp , on the TV show Desperate Housewives for one season. Once again, his character was killed off at the end of the season. He does, however, make re-appearances during flashback sequences, and he replaces Mary Alice Young as the narrator of the series for the 16th episode of the third season, "My Husband, the Pig". He also played Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives Jeff Haffley on the TV show The West Wing. Culp also starred in a few episodes of 24 during the second season, as Secret Service agent Ted Simmons.

Culp won the Celebrity Poker Showdown 7th Season Championship game. He was seen on the ABC show Traveler as Special Agent in Charge Fred Chambers and on NCIS as Navy Commander William Skinner. He also appeared in the Stargate Atlantis episode "Miller's Crossing", and on Medium, in the episode "Do You Hear What I Hear", as well as on the pilot episode of The Mentalist. He is set to star as Thomas Foran in the upcoming film The Chicago 8.
