Bruce Davison portrayed the role of "Dr. Brooks" on LOST.


Bruce Davison (born June 28, 1946 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American actor.

He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1991 as the gay man whose lover is dying of AIDS in Longtime Companion. Before this breakthrough role, which won him many critical awards, he was best known for the 1969 teen sex/rape drama Last Summer, as the rat-loving protaganist in Willard from 1971, and the starring role in The Lathe of Heaven in 1980.

Davison is perhaps most familiar to contemporary movie audiences for his role as Senator Robert Kelly in the X-Men movie franchise. Though his character died in the first film, Davison appeared in X2 as a shapeshifting impostor of Kelly.

More recently he was in the film Runaway Jury and the Stephen King TV mini-series Kingdom Hospital.

He is also remembered by science-fiction fans for appearing in two episodes of the V television series, episodes of Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise.
