He can currently be seen as Detective Chris Caysen, Captain of the Youth Violence Strike Force on Showtime’s critically-acclaimed Boston crime drama series, City on a Hill, starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge. His Netflix Comedy Series, Huge in France, released in April 2019, received rave reviews with his portrayal of down-and-out actor Jason Alan Ross being singled out as a “show stealer” and “comedic tour de force”. In addition to his series regular role on Huge in France, Del Negro was a series regular on the critical darling Amazon Original Drama series, Goliath, starring Billy Bob Thornton, where he played Danny Loomis, the shady right-hand man to Mark Duplass’ twisted billionaire villain. He is also known to young audiences for his portrayal of Scott McCall’s father, Agent Rafael McCall, on the fan-favorite MTV series, Teen Wolf, as well as female audiences for his portrayal of sex-worker turned husband to Chief of Staff Cyrus Beane on ABC’s smash hit, Scandal, starring Kerry Washington and created by Shonda Rhimes.
Since launching his podcast, in which he sits down with high achievers in all walks of life to discuss their hard-fought journeys to where they are now, Matthew has become one of the faces of Perseverance, Resilience and Grit. He is more frequently requested to deliver keynotes on those subjects, as they pertain to his long and windy journey as an actor, his prior life as a Division I athlete, and solutions to the challenges that face individuals and institutions. Del Negro has also written, produced and directed for film and is currently developing a feature script about a hard-charging, self-serving motivational speaker who eventually learns to take his own advice and care for others after hitting rock bottom.
