About Corey Brill
Corey Brill hails from Ohio, cut his teeth in NYC and is now based in Los Angeles. Most recently seen as Robert Dean in NBC’s “Chicago PD” opposite Jason Vegh, other television credits include guest star roles on “You’re the Worst” (FX), “Scorpion” (CBS), “Perception” (TNT) and “CSI:Miami” (CBS) among others. Fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” know Brill as the abusive husband and surgeon Dr. Pete Anderson.
On Broadway, Corey played campaign manager Don Blades in 2012’s star-studded revival of Gore Vidal’s The Best Man starring the likes of James Earl Jones, Angela Lansbury, Candice Bergan, Cybil Shepard and other phenoms. Also on Broadway, Brill understudied two roles in Rajiv Joseph’s Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo starring Robin Williams. From 1999-2000 he played Herman in the first national tour of Cabaret directed by Rob Marshall and Sam Mendes.
Regionally, Corey has had the fortune to perform across the country. Directly out of grad school, Brill played the Gentleman Caller in The Glass Menagerie at the Kennedy Center with Sally Field in the role of Amanda. His regional credits also include four world-premieres at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa CA (Office Hour, Of Good Stock, Five Mile Lake and SmokeFall), Actors Theatre of Louisville (Noises Off!), The Old Globe (Opus), Williamstown Theatre Festival (Lady Windermere’s Fan, On the Razzle), Seattle Repertory (Doubt), Hartford Stage (The Bay at Nice), La Jolla Playhouse (Beauty) and many others.
Corey’s also an accomplished voice actor and narrator having voiced over 20 titles for Simon & Schuster as well as Jerry on Adult Swim’s “Welcome to Eltingville” and video games. He graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre from Otterbein College and an MFA in Acting from UCSD.
Corey and his family live in a loft in DTLA but grab every chance they can to find themselves in the mountains. He loves playing music (guitar, piano, sax, uke) with his amazing wife Joy Osmanski and their kids, and baking pretty decent loaves of sourdough bread. He’s been keeping multiple hives of bees on a rooftop for about seven years now (really). Oh, and that guy standing in the background of The Beatle’s Abby Road cover photo was his great uncle Paul. (also really!)
