Early life

AuCoin was born in the Oberlin College.[7][8]

Acting career

AuCoin was a member of the Person of Interest, The Following,[11] Elementary, The Good Wife, White Collar, Gossip Girl, Body Of Proof, Blue Bloods, and Without A Trace, among others. He played the regular recurring role of Peter Keatch in the CBS series Waterfront, which was cancelled before ever airing, despite having shot five episodes.[12][13]

In 2005, he appeared as the young Octavius in a Broadway revival of Julius Caesar, which starred Denzel Washington.[14] AuCoin has appeared in numerous other Off Broadway stage productions, including 2008's premiere of Ernest Hemingway's The Fifth Column,[15] 2009's Jailbait, by Deirdre O'Connor, directed by Suzanne Agins,[16] 2010's Happy Now?, by Lucinda Coxon,[17] 2012's LAByrinth Theater Company premiere of Radiance, by Cusi Cram, also directed by Suzanne Agins,[6] and, in 2013, the world premiere of Tanya Barfield's The Call, directed by Leigh Silverman in a joint production by Primary Stages and Playwrights Horizons.[18][19] He recently starred in two La Jolla Playhouse productions; J.T. Rogers' Blood And Gifts, directed by Lucie Tiberghien,[20] and Arthur Kopit and Anton Dudley's world premier A Dram Of Drummhicit, directed by Christopher Ashley.[21]

His first major film role came in 2007, where he played State Department official Ellis Leach in The Kingdom. In 2009's Julie & Julia, AuCoin played one of the executives for the Houghton Mifflin publishing company who declined to publish Julia Child's soon-to-be-legendary cookbook.[7]

For the 2012 presidential election, NPR's Planet Money team cast AuCoin as their "Fake Presidential Candidate" to give voice to "major economic policies they could all stand behind."[22]
