Leland Orser (born Leland Jones Orser August 6, 1960} appeared as Mark, a director for a "Waist-Away"'' diet shake commercial in which Kelly was to appear in in the Season 9 episode of Married... with Children titled "The Naked and the Dead, But Mostly the Naked", the first of four episode appearances, where he plays the part of a cynical TV commercial/series director. Leland is perhaps best known for his appearances in the films Se7en (1995), Escape from L.A. (1996), Ailen Resurrection (1997), Runaway Jury (2003), Taken (2008) and Taken 2 (2012).

Leland made his television debut in 1991 on the show Gabriel's Fire. His next roles were bit parts and small roles on The Golden Girls, Cheers, L.A. Law, The X-Files, NYPD Blue, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. In 1999, he played the (rather demanding) main role of Dr. Arthur Zeller in The Outer Limits episode "Descent", a part seemingly tailored by writer Eric Saltzgaber for Orser's particular talents. Fans of Married... with Children know him in his recurring guest role as the cynical director of advertisements.

Personal lifeEdit

Leland has been married to Jeanne Tripplehorn since October 14, 2000. They have one child. He was previously married to Roma Downey of the CBS-TV series Touched by an Angel fame, from 1987-89.
