Life and career[edit]

Cohen was born in The Bronx, New York City, the son of Leatrice, a teacher, and Jack Cohen, a jazz musician.[1] In 1990, he was offered his breakthrough role in Adrian Lyne's Jacob's Ladder. He is known for his portrayal of Wolf in the 2000 NBC miniseries The 10th Kingdom, his performance as detective Steve Thomas in Perfect Murder, Perfect Town, his recurring role as Lorelai Gilmore's love interest Max Medina on the WB series Gilmore Girls, and his role as Josh in the indie romantic flick Kissing Jessica Stein. He also appeared in the movie Gia with Angelina Jolie, as a parole officer in the Showtime original series Street Time with Rob Morrow, and was featured in the 2005 NBC series Law & Order: Trial by Jury as Det. Chris Ravell. In the video game Ripper, he portrays protagonist Jake Quinlan. In 2002-2003, he made some appearances on the game show Pyramid, hosted by Donny Osmond. He guest-starred in the premiere episode of the eighth season of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, playing the role of a city politician with a dark family secret and whose daughter is a drug addict involved with a drug dealer boyfriend killed mysteriously in the opening scene.

Cohen also played Jack Woolf in the movie The Other Woman with Natalie Portman and Charlie Tahan.

In 1989, Cohen married model Anastasia Traina. Their son, Liam, was born in May 1995.

Cohen also stars in British thriller Iron Cross which is in post-production and was slated for release in late 2010. The release was rescheduled for March, 2011,[2] but remains unreleased as of August, 2011. In the film he plays Ronnie, whose father, Joseph, is played by Roy Scheider.

Cohen was on USA Network's drama series, Necessary Roughness, as the fixer, Nico.

Most recently he has had a role in The Carrie Diaries as Carrie's dad's old friend starting in Season 1 Episode 3. He gives Carrie her internship as his law firm in New York City, and Carrie dates his son. He also courts and eventually marries Larissa, Carrie's boss at Interview magazine.
