Life and career

Adelstein was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1969. Prior to his professional acting career, Adelstein attended the progressive Francis W. Parker School, then Bowdoin College where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude with a degree in English.[1] He began his career in theatre, working with New Crime Productions, a company founded by John Cusack, and later with the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.

Making his film debut in 1990 in The Grifters, Adelstein went on to appear in several television series which include Cupid, ER, Without a Trace and Scrubs and to have a number of significant supporting roles in films such as Bedazzled (2000), Intolerable Cruelty (2003), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005), and Be Cool (2005). In 2005, he received his most significant role to date as a member of the regular cast of Prison Break. Interestingly, though he played the role of Paul Kellerman, he had originally auditioned for the role of Lincoln Burrows. When he left the show in 2007, he joined the regular cast of Private Practice.

In November 2006, Adelstein married actress Liza Weil, who played Paris Geller on Gilmore Girls. Adelstein is also lead singer and guitarist of a band called Doris. He is related to television producer Marty Adelstein.
