Christopher Gorham has had a very diverse career. While we know him as Auggie, the tech genius handler from Covert Affairs, he's had roles in multiple TV shows and movies over the years. Here are a few that you can check him out in.

In one of Gorham's earlier roles, he starred as John Groeberg, a Mormon missionary who went to Tonga to spread the word of God. The movie, which was based on Groberg's autobiography In the Eye of the Storm, follows the struggles of Groberg as he tries to live when adjusting to life alongside the natives. Gorham would return to the character 18 years later in 2019 for its sequel.

Over the course of the film, Paul finds his knack for trivia and enters a citywide tournament, while also trying to finish his dissertation.

After Covert Affairs, Gorham proved that he could do comedy as well as playing the smart guy in the chair. In 2018, Gorham starred as Bob Barnard in Netflix's controversial comedy Insatiable. Bob often spends his time messing with his rival Bob Armstrong, who tries to be main character Patty's pageant coach.
