Czuchry was born in Manchester, New Hampshire, and grew up in Johnson City, Tennessee. His father, Andrew Czuchry, is a professor at East Tennessee State University, and his mother, Sandra, is a homemaker. He is of Ukrainian descent on his father's side. He has two brothers and a sister.
He graduated from Science Hill High School in 1995. Czuchry graduated with honors in 1999 from the College of Charleston with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science. He won the Mr College of Charleston pageant in 1998. Czuchry attended college on a tennis scholarship, captained the men's tennis team, and was an NCAA ranked player in the Southern Conference. On the April 29, 2016, episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he said that before becoming an actor he took the Law School Admission Test and did poorly.
Czuchry took one theater class in college, and his professor encouraged him to change his major to drama. It was during his first role on The WB's Young Americans that he met Kate Bosworth, whom he dated from 2000 to 2002. He also did guest spots on Freaks and Geeks, 7th Heaven, The Practice, Veronica Mars and Friday Night Lights. After recurring on the CBS television drama Hack and starring in the UPN pilot Jake 2.0, Czuchry received his breakthrough role as Logan Huntzberger on the television series Gilmore Girls in 2004. His role was initially recurring during the series' fifth season before being upgraded to a series regular during the sixth season.
From 2009-16, Czuchry portrayed lawyer Cary Agos on the CBS drama The Good Wife. He also reprised his role as Logan Huntzberger on Netflix's reunion miniseries, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (2016).
Czuchry currently stars in Fox's hit medical drama series The Resident, which premiered on January 21, 2018. He plays the title character, Dr. Conrad Hawkins, who is constantly butting heads with his superiors in rank - attending physicians - as well as hospital bureaucrats at Atlanta's fictional Chastain Park Memorial Hospital in an effort to be an advocate for his patients instead of always looking out for the hospital's plush bottom line. The series was renewed for a second season on May 7, 2018, with the spring 2017 midseason replacement now promoted to Fox's autumn 2018-19 schedule, paired with its other successful spring replacement, 9-1-1.
