Joel Gretsch stars as "Tom Baldwin" in the USA Network original series The 4400.
Audiences were first introduced to Gretsch when he received rave reviews for his major motion picture debut: his portrayal of "Bobby Jones" for director Robert Redford in the DreamWorks film The Legend of Bagger Vance, starring Matt Damon, Will Smith, and Charlize Theron.
In 2002, Gretsch was featured alongside Tom Cruise in the Steven Spielberg film Minority Report; starred opposite Kevin Klein in The Emperor's Club; and also starred in the Steven Spielberg-produced, 10-part, Emmy®-award winning miniseries Taken for SCI FI.
A Minnesota native, Gretsch studied acting at the renowned Guthrie Theatre for six months prior to moving to Los Angeles in 1989. He made his professional debut in a small production of "Tartuffe" and subsequently starred as the title character in John Patrick Shanley's West Coast production of "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea."
He has also appeared in such television shows as CSI: Miami, JAG, Friends, Melrose Place, and NCIS.
Gretsch studies in Los Angeles with Larry Moss, who also works with Hilary Swank and Leonardo DiCaprio.
