Michael is well-known for his accomplishments in both film and television, including roles in “National Treasure: Book of Secrets,” “Eagle Eye,” “True Blood,” “Castle,” “Charmed,” “Without a Trace” and “CSI: NY.” During his two days at Millikin, Michael spoke with students about his experiences as an actor in Los Angeles and New York and led a workshop in which he worked on camera scenes with students.
