Commander Lawrence

Bradley Whitford, a classically trained stage actor, quickly gained overnight fame as the sarcastic yet vulnerable, Josh Lyman, on NBC’s The West Wing. One of the few actors working successfully and simultaneously in theater, film and television, Whitford is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after talents.

Whitford recently starred in National Geographic’s docudrama Valley of the Boom, created by Matthew Carnahan and produced by Arianna Huffington, where he plays Netscape CEO James Barksdale. The series portrays a look at the tech boom of the 1990s in Silicon Valley. Whitford was also recently seen guest-starring as Commander Lawrence, the architect of Gilead’s economy, in the second season of the Hulu/MGM Emmy-winning series, The Handmaid’s Tale. He is currently filming the third season of the show. He also appeared in an episode of the POP TV series, Flack, a drama about the cutthroat world of celebrity PR.

Bradley can currently be seen in Brie Larson’s The Unicorn Store, which stars Larson along with Samuel L. Jackson and Joan Cusack. He recently co-starred in the crime drama The Destroyer, alongside Sebastian Stan and Nicole Kidman; the sci-fi thriller The Darkest Minds, which is based on Alexandra Bracken’s popular young adult novel of the same time; and Judy Greer’s directorial debut, A Happening of Monumental Proportions, which featured an all-star ensemble including Jennifer Garner, Allison Janney, Common, and Anders Holm.

Upcoming projects include Godzilla: King of the Monsters, alongside Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Sally Hawkins and Millie Bobby Brown; Todd Robinson’s political drama, The Last Full Measure, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer and William Hurt; Greg Barker’s Netflix Drama Sergio; and The Philosophy of Phil, which was directed by Greg Kinnear.

In addition to the Academy Awards, both films received nominations for the Golden Globes, the BFCA Choice Awards, among numerous other accolades.

Additional film credits include the biopic Megan Leavey opposite Kate Mara and Edie Falco; the independent film, Other People, written and directed by SNL writer, Chris Kelly which won the Grand Jury prize at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival; HBO’s Lyndon B.
