Early lifeEdit

Gladis was born in Houston, Texas. He was raised in Farmington, Connecticut, the son of a sales and marketing executive and a state worker. He graduated from Farmington High School in 1995.[2] Inspiration for a life of acting originated from the time he spent volunteering for theater productions at Miss Porter's School, the internationally known all-girls school in town, where he knew male actors were needed.[3][4] Most of his family is either Catholic or Christian, although his maternal grandfather was Jewish.[5][6]

He started his college career at the SUNY School of Art Design at Alfred University before transferring to State University of New York at New Paltz, from which he earned a B.A. in theatre in 1999.[7][8]

Prior to Mad Men, he played Eugene Rossi in four episodes of Third Watch. He formerly starred in the Adult Swim comedy Eagleheart. Gladis appeared in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit titled "Branded" and in an episode of Leverage titled "The 15 Minute Job".

He provided the voice and MotionScan of Dudley Lynch in the game L.A. Noire and was Senior Seaman Yevgeny Borzenkov in the 2002 film K19: The Widowmaker. In 2015, he portrayed Lieutenant Matias in the science fiction action film Terminator Genisys.[9]
