Raised in Connecticut and New York, the Juilliard trained actor's previous major stage credit was the Off-Broadway production of the late Harry Kondoleon's Saved or Destroyed. In Los Angeles, Doyle was excellent as Lord Alfred Douglas in Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde at the Mark Taper Forum. Again in New York, he has been featured in the Lincoln Center's The New Century.

Aside from OZ, television viewers may remember him for his appearances in episodes of such popular series as ER and Sex and the City and for his recurring role in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
