A Showtime Original Series

Paul Schulze

Paul Schulze is a true New Yorker: he was raised on the East Side and attended S.U.N.Y. Purchase in Westchester County where he was exposed to theatre. Not long after graduating, he landed his first feature film role in the critically acclaimed, independent film LAWS OF GRAVITY, which co-starred fellow S.U.N.Y. Purchase alum Edie Falco. Schulze went on to star in numerous films and television series, most notably on THE SOPRANOS where he played Father Phil Intintola, a priest with an arguably inappropriate fondness for Carmela Soprano (played by Falco). He also appeared for three seasons in the hugely successful series 24 as CTU director Ryan Chappelle before his character's unexpected and controversial demise.


Schulze's other film credits include PANIC ROOM, where he played the rookie cop opposite Jodie Foster in one of the film's most memorable and intense scenes, and RAMBO, the latest installment in the franchise, where he played missionary Michael Burnett who continually butts heads with Sylvester Stallone's character.


Schulze turned in an emotional performance on the crime-drama LAW & ORDER: SVU, playing Patrick Holbart, a father who has unknowingly sold his children into a human trafficking ring. He also recently guest starred on various TV series such as FAIRLY LEGAL, PERSON OF INTEREST, FRANKLIN & BASH, and THE MENTALIST. Paul will next appear in the road trip comedy YOU ARE HERE alongside Zack Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, and Owen Wilson.
