#Fact
1 He was nominated for a 1987 Antoinette Perry (Tony) Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Play for "All My Sons" on Broadway in New York City.
2 He was involved in two different projects concerning the scandal about Catholic priests and pedophilia: the Emmy award winner documentary Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God (2012) and in the Academy award winner Spotlight (2015).
3 In 1987, he competed with fellow "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" actor, Courtney B. Vance, for the same Supporting Actor Tony Award, which neither of them won. Sheridan's nomination that year was for playing the "All My Sons" role of "Chris Keller," which happened to be the character name of Christopher Meloni (another "Law & Order" actor) in the HBO series "Oz." The following year (1988) the same Tony Award for supporting actor was awarded to B. D. Wong, a featured actor on both "Law & Order" and "Oz.".
4 Son, Quin Kalis Sheridan (born 1997).
5 Suffers from Bell's Palsy and has worn an eye patch in several episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001), with the patch being written into the storyline.
6 Won the 1988 Helen Hayes Award for his performance in "All My Sons" (Outstanding Supporting Performer, Non-Resident Production).
7 Was nominated for Broadway's 1987 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for a revival of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons".
8 Preceded role of Claudius in Hamlet (2000) with equivalent character of Carl (uncle to protagonist seeking his father's murderer) in Let the Devil Wear Black (1999), a contemporary noir derived from "Hamlet".
9 The original, unaired pilot of Veronica's Closet (1997), featured him in the role of Bryce. The producers recast the role with Christopher McDonald sometime over the summer and the scenes featuring Sheridan were reshot. Several early press reports and fall 1997 announcements of the show listed Sheridan as the second star behind Kirstie Alley, so it's very likely that Bryce was originally intended to be a regular character and not recurring.

1 Television allows for survival, which is the basic issue for me. You have to decide how much money is enough. You can't get carried away with the hunt for money. But there are times it shows up, and you need to grab it, and that allows you to hunt for a better script.
