JOSHUA MALINA Biography
After graduating from Yale University with a B.A. in Theatre Studies, Joshua made his professional acting debut in the Broadway production of Aaron Sorkin’s A FEW GOOD MEN. He went on to star as Jeremy Goodwin in Sorkin’s critically acclaimed television series SPORTS NIGHT. Later, Josh co-starred as Will Bailey in Sorkin’s multi- Emmy winning THE WEST WING. Other Sorkin credits include the hit features THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT and MALICE.
For three seasons, Joshua portrayed multi-millionaire Peter Alpert on USA Network’s hit IN PLAIN SIGHT.

A graduate of Westchester Day School, Josh has been active in Jewish affairs for some time. He appeared in the Jewish Federation’s “Live Generously” campaign, and starred in a video aimed at Jewish high school students, to prepare them for the possibility that they’ll face an anti-Israel climate on college campuses.

In 2012, he took Mazon’s SNAP Food Stamp Challenge, and discussed the experience on Current T.V.’s The Young Turks.
