In 2003, Shenkman's fame rose with the debut of the HBO drama miniseries "Angels in America," where he played the self-involved lover Louis Ironson. His performance earned him acclaim, including an Emmy and a Golden Globe nomination. Shenkman has continued to balance studio films like the romantic comedy "Must Love Dogs" with indie features like the drama "Brief Interviews With Hideous Men." Shenkman has also made television appearances on shows like the medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," the action series "Burn Notice," and the crime drama series "Damages."
