Kevin is, perhaps, best known to millions around the world as television's dashing Dr. Craig Wesley, a character he portrayed, for 71/2 years on NBC's Emmy Award Winning drama: "Days of Our Lives." After becoming a huge fan favorite, Spirtas was cast to play his "Days" role of Dr. Craig Wesley opposite Matt Leblanc's Dr. Drake Ramoray on NBC's, "Friends." Spirtas' career began, at 18, when he landed his first professional job as Mike ("I Can Do That") Costa, in Michael Bennett's Broadway seminal musical: A Chorus Line. Spirtas has also starred on Broadway and Regional tours including: Hairspray, Meet Me In St. Louis, Company, Damn Yankees and Into The Woods. A tribute to Spirtas' high-octane talent came in 2003 when he was cast (over hundreds) as the stand-by for Hugh Jackman in Broadway's smash hit musical: The Boy From Oz. His television and film credits include: "L.A. Heat," "V.I.P.", "Fired Up," "Silk Stalkings," "Quantum Leap," Embrace the Darkness, Striking Resemblance, and Green Plaid Shirt. Spirtas has been featured opposite Sir Ian McKellen in Bryan Singer's Apt Pupil and Ben Affleck in Mark Steven Johnson's director's cut of Daredevil. He can also be seen starring in those fantastic cult classic slasher sequels: Friday the 13th VII, Subspecies II, and Subspecies III, and Wes Craven's The Hills Have Eyes II. In October 2009, Spirtas made his debut as a Broadway producer with the critically acclaimed revival of Finian's Rainbow. While continuing his work in film and television, he tours the world with his highly acclaimed one-man musical shows: Night & Days, Jersey Men, and Let There Be Love. WWW.KEVINSPIRTAS.COM
