MISSION TO MARS
(Mission Specialist Phil Ohlmyer) career began at the tender age of 11, when he made his debut starring in Rob Reiner's "Stand By Me." Born in New York City, O'Connell continued acting as a teenager starring in the ABC series "Camp Wilder." He then attended film school at New York University.
In 1995, O'Connell was cast as the parallel universe-traveling Quinn Mallory in Fox's hit-series "Sliders." He starred in the series for four seasons, also serving as producer during his final year, when he also wrote and directed several episodes. His other television appearances include the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentations "The Room Upstairs" and "The Hole in the Sky," as well as the epic NBC miniseries "The Sixties."
O'Connell's feature films include "Calendar Girl," "Joe's Apartment," Cameron Crowe's "Jerry Maguire" opposite Tom Cruise, Wes Craven's "Scream 2" and "Body Shots." His next projects are starring roles in two romantic comedies: "Buying the Cow," and "First Daughter." The latter is especially exciting for O'Connell because he also wrote the "First Daughter" screenplay.
