Occupation Actor
Years active 1985 — present

Mark W. Moses (born February 24, 1958) is an American actor, most likely known for his role as Paul Young on Desperate Housewives.



Moses was born in New York City, the brother of actor and singer Burke Moses.[1] As a character actor with appearances on projects ranging as diverse as Big Momma's House 2 (2006), Platoon (1986) and Star Trek: Voyager (1999), Moses was always reliably employed, but never became a household name in America.

This changed in 2004, when Moses was cast in the role of Paul Young on the hit ABC dramedy Desperate Housewives (2004-07). As the disturbed husband of the deceased (suicide victim) Mary Alice Young, Moses played one of the pivotal figures in the show's original main mystery.

He currently plays Herman "Duck" Phillips on the AMC series Mad Men.

Moses played the title character, "a Wall Street creep",[2] in a 2006 Off-Broadway play called Burleigh Grimes (which has nothing to do with the baseball player of the same name).

Moses currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife Annie LaRussa and their two sons. He has a brief appearance in the 2008 film Swing Vote, starring Kevin Costner.

He is married to Annie Larussa and they have two son.
