Matthew Del Negro has built a solid career with varied roles in features, television and theater. His hot start to 2015 is simply a continuation of a busy 2014 where he had significant arcs on several hit shows, including ABC's "Scandal" and "Mistresses", MTV's "Teen Wolf", and CBS's "NCIS: Los Angeles".
This Spring, Matt can be seen as Interim Fire Chief Pat Pridgen in the 3rd season of the critically acclaimed NBC drama "Chicago Fire" while simultaneously continuing his controversial role of Michael Ambruso on Shonda Rhimes' "Scandal". Matt also stars in the MGM action comedy feature "Hot Pursuit" alongside Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara.
Matt's Hollywood success has been well earned, as he began his career in small theater productions in New York before landing a pivotal recurring role on Season 4 of HBO's groundbreaking series "The Sopranos" opposite James Gandolfini and Edie Falco. Building on that momentum, Matt went on to land major arcs on NBC's critically-acclaimed "The West Wing" and Showtime's "United States of Tara", as well as ABC Family's "Beautiful People". In addition to these arcs, he kept himself busy with guest spots on shows across the television landscape, including recurring roles on "Parenthood", "Rizzoli & Isles" and "CSI: Miami". He also continued to grab notice with flashy spots on shows like "The Good Wife", "Damages" and "Marry Me", toggling the line between drama and comedy while returning to the boards in A.C.T.'s sold-out run of David Mamet's "Speed the Plow" to play the role of Bobby Gould, directed by Loretta Greco.
Having made his own short film, Christmas Break, in 2007, Matt stepped behind the camera again as creative consultant to help fellow actor Chris Messina with his directorial debut, "Alex of Venice". Matt also acts in the film which premieres in April, starring Don Johnson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Derek Luke. He has had similarly prominent roles in an assortment of festival and independent films such as the gritty "The Sublime and Beautiful", "Celeste & Jesse Forever" starring Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones, "Ira & Abby" for Magnolia Pictures, and the Ethan Hawke directed "Chelsea Walls".
Matthew grew up in Westchester County, New York and graduated from Boston College, where he played Division I Lacrosse and and consistently made the Dean's List.
He lives with his family in Los Angeles.
