  Summary  

William Joshua Hopkins is an American actor.

  Biography  

 career
Hopkins joined the fourth, and last season, of New York Undercover in 1998. In 1999 Hopkins starred in Alanis Morissette's "Unsent" music video. Hopkins portrayed Paul Allen in the 1999 film Pirates of Silicon Valley, and Raymond Milbury on the television series Ally McBeal , probably his most famous role to date. He portrayed womanizer Charlie Babcock on the television series Pepper Dennis . He later worked with his former Ally McBeal co-star Calista Flockhart when he had a recurring role on Brothers & Sisters. He also had a semi regular role as Peter Manning on the cancelled FOX drama Vanished .

In 2005, Hopkins guest starred on Fox's hit show Bones as Temperance Brennan's former professor and lover, Michael Stires, in the episode "The Girl in the Fridge". Hopkins has also guest starred in CSI: Miami. Season 1 of the CBS series Cold Case saw Hopkins play the role of Assistant District Attorney Jason Kite. The show was especially noted for the on-screen chemistry between Hopkins' character and the character of Detective Lilly Rush, played by Kathryn Morris.

Hopkins starred in the 2008 CBS summer drama Swingtown as Roger Thompson. The series was originally intended for the Fall 2007 season, but was postponed due to the writer's strike. It has sparked some controversy for its portrayal of 1970s culture, including open marriage and key parties.

In 2009, Hopkins appeared as Dr. Noah Barnes on ABC's Private Practice Season 2.

He currently plays the character Grayson Ellis on the ABC sitcom Cougar Town, which premiered September 23, 2009.

His most recent film, Lebanon, PA premiered in March at the 2010 SXSW Film Festival. Josh stars as "Will", a Philly ad man whose life takes on new meaning when he travels to rural Lebanon, Pennsylvania, to bury his father.

 personal life
Hopkins, who was born in Lexington, Kentucky, is the son of former Kentucky Congressman Larry Hopkins and Carolyn Hopkins. He attended Sayre School and played varsity basketball. Hopkins attended Auburn University.

During an interview with New Zealand radio station ZM, Hopkins exclaimed that his favorite basketball team was the Kentucky Wildcats.

In addition to acting, Hopkins is also an amateur musician who has recorded several original singles. His first music video, "Feigning Interest" (directed by John Killoran & Matt O'Neil), was released online in October 2006. When it became a featured video on MySpace in June 2007, the vast increase in exposure led to some controversy as viewers debated whether the song was outwardly misogynistic or a broad satire of one-track-minded men and women (the latter being Hopkins' stated intent). Regardless, the popularity of the "Feigning Interest" video led to a highly successful performance by Hopkins at the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago in August 2007.
