    Mini biography
    Tate Donovan began making television appearances while still in his teens, most often cast as angst-ridden high schoolers in such made for TV films such as _Not My Kid (1985)_ and _Nutcracker; Money, Madness & Murder (1987)_ . Born to a large family in Tenafly, New Jersey, Donovan moved to Los Angeles to be closer to the television industry while he attended college at U.S.C., where he also met several of his long time friends such as actors Grant Heslov and George Clooney, with whom he still parties with to this day. Although not quite as active as his friend Clooney in the romantic arena, confirmed bachelor Donovan has been engaged to both film star Sandra Bullock and television icon ‚Jennifer Anniston‘ , and has dated a large diverse group of women such as socialite Plum Sikes, stage actress Whitney Allen, and television soap actress ‚Lauren Graham‘ , whom he met when they both appeared in the play „Once in a Lifetime“ at the Williamstown Theater Festival in 2002. After graduating from college, Donovan gained prominent notice for his portrayal of the charismatic yet self-centered co-pilot in the ensemble period drama Memphis Belle (1990). Prior to that, Donovan had appeared as the cocky elder camper in SpaceCamp (1986) and as a recovering drug addict in Clean and Sober (1988). His first leading role was in the charming but minor Love Potion No. 9 (1992), costarring Sandra Bullock, to whom he became engaged. (their relationship ended in 1994) He then appeared in several independent features as sullen, withdrawn types before following up with a role in the Disney family comedy, Holy Matrimony (1994). He returned to Disney for perhaps his highest profile effort to date, the animated Hercules (1997), for which he provided the voice for the adult version of the title character. Donovan’s small screen work has included a Cable ACE-nominated turn in the HBO series, _“Vietnam War Story II“ (1988) (V)_ . He joined the parade of film stars who turned to sitcoms, heading the cast of „Partners“ (1995) opposite Jon Cryer. When that failed to catch on, he joined with his Memphis Belle (1990) co-stars Eric Stoltz and Reed Diamond to play three brothers in a memorable episode of NBC’s „Homicide: Life on the Street“ (1993) and had a recurring role as a client and potential love interest for Calista Flockhart’s titular lawyer „Ally McBeal“ (1997). Switching networks, Donovan had a recurring role as a love interest opposite his then-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston in NBC’s „Friends“ (1994) and then donned clerical garb to play the priest son of a large Irish Catholic family in the short-lived NBC drama „Trinity“ (1998). More recently he has appeared as a guest star in several shows such as _Guardian, The (2001)_ , as well as „Mister Sterling“ (2003) and in the new show „The O.C.“ (2003).
