Early and personal life

Bucatinsky was born in New York City, to Argentinian Jewish parents, Julio and Myriam. He is a graduate of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

He now lives with his husband, screenwriter Don Roos, and they have two children, Eliza and Jonah.


Bucatinsky was the writer, producer and star of the 2001 Lions Gate romantic comedy All Over the Guy.

He has appeared in episodes of many popular television series, including Curb Your Enthusiasm, Weeds, Friends, NYPD Blue, That '80s Show, Frasier, and Will & Grace, as well as an episode of Grey's Anatomy (where Bucatinsky also served as a consulting producer), and a recurring role as a gay journalist and husband of the President's Chief of Staff on the 2012 drama, Scandal, for which he won the 2013 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series.

He executive produced and acted in the 2005 HBO series The Comeback along with his producing partner, actress Lisa Kudrow.

Web Therapy continued for three seasons on the L Studio and in April 2010 Showtime announced the network would begin airing 30-minute episodes in 2011. Meryl Streep is to be one of the guest actors in Season 4. The first three seasons are available for download on iTunes.
