Some of his other most notable movies include A Simple Plan, Dodgeball, In the Line of Fire, The Gift, The Ring Two and One Hour Photo.
In terms of his TV career, Cole was Kurt McVeigh in The Good Fight, Mixed-Ish, Carl Grissom in Chicago Fire and Kent Davison in Veep.
There is also his work in animated series, working as a voiceover artist, to consider when thinking about Cole’s overall net worth.
Fans may not realise he has voiced characters in Q-Force, Bob’s Burgers, Big Mouth, American Dad, Family Guy and was the narrator in The Tom and Jerry Show for seven years.
Fast forward to last year and Cole was cast as Agent Alden Parker in NCIS season 19.
At the time of joining the drama, original star Mark Harmon was still in the series as Agent Leroy Gibbs.
But it was thought that Parker had been introduced as a kind of replacement for the veteran actor as his part in the show was slowly but surely dwindling.
Not too long after his departure, Parker was named as lead agent in NCIS, taking over Gibbs’ role on the team.
NCIS season 20, episode 14’s Old Wounds will come out on CBS on Monday, February 13.
As previously mentioned, this instalment is going to focus on Cole’s character.
The synopsis reads: “Parker grapples with his emotions when a conman from his past turns up as a prime suspect in the m****r of a navy officer transporting millions of dollars’ worth of opioids.”
NCIS season 20 continues every Monday on CBS.
