Nobel prize-winning mathematician and researcher, Nathan Stark runs Global Dynamics with an iron fist — and sometimes shady motives, which often puts him at odds with Jack Carter, not to mention their rivalry over Allison Blake. He’s charming, suave, rich, and his perfectly-groomed goatee and bespoke suits belie the fact he can often be ruthless when the situation calls for it. Sound familiar yet? It should: Nathan Stark has a lot in common with Marvel’s Tony Stark when it comes to looks, background, and personality, and Ed Quinn nails every facet of the complicated character.
Quinn has certainly kept busy since Eureka, with roles in Revenge, Mistresses, 2 Broke Girls, and One Day at a Time. More recently, he’s been seen playing President Hunter Franklin in The Oval, a fitting role for his distinguished looks. But Quinn’s other passion is music — he studied with famed guitarist Joe Satriani when he was younger, and played in L.A.-based bands Mad Theory and Scattergood. Though he’s busy with acting these days, he still finds time to dabble on the guitar from time to time.
