He is a graduate of St. Paul's School, a college-preparatory boarding school in Concord, New Hampshire, (1987); Brown University (1991) in Rhode Island, where he majored in Theatre and Religion; and the University of California, San Diego, Master of Fine Arts program (1995).

Mitchell plays the role of an insane prison inmate in both Prison Break and My Name Is Earl. He also appears in Rat Race (2001) as Lloyd (The Hardware Store Guy), and in The Whole Ten Yards as Yermo.

One of his most notable roles is that of mentally unstable recurring character James Hogan on Cold Case.

TriviaEdit

  • Mitchell doesn't watch Grimm. "I just don't need to see it...I like to think about things from the inside...it's more fun if you play pretend all the way, which means that you're not watching yourself play pretend. You're inside the imaginary reality... If you're looking at yourself, you're not allowing yourself to be completely immersed..."
