Troy Cutler (David Anders) is V3’s CFO and Connor McClane’s second-in-command. Having sacrificed his personal life for his career, Troy gets satisfaction from getting his hands a little dirty for the company, which doesn’t exactly sit well with Dr. Dani. On the flip side, he doesn’t trust Dr. Dani or her methods. While he lets this play out, he just needs to make sure she doesn’t put her nose where it doesn’t belong—namely, in his business.

David Anders stars as Troy Cutler  in the USA Network original series, Necessary Roughness. 

David Anders is well-known to television audiences as the evil “Julian Sark” on ABC’s fan favorite Alias, as well as his role of “Takezo Kensei,” Hiro’s samurai-turned-bad-guy idol, on the NBC series Heroes.

And though both of these popular characters are British, Anders is actually from southern Oregon.

Anders has had the chance to use his American accent a great deal recurring roles on ABC’s smash hit series Once Upon a Time, on which he plays Storybrooke’s “Doctor Whale” and the fantasy world’s “Doctor Frankenstein,” and the popular new CW series “Arrow”, where he portrays Starling City baddie “Cyrus Vanch.”

He is also known for his recurring stint as “John Gilbert” on the hit CW series THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, as well as his starring role in the SyFy Channel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Children of the Corn. 

Anders began acting as a young boy in school plays in his native Oregon, but athletics occupied him until he was a senior in high school.  He was accepted at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California, but instead decided to jump right into the business.  One week and 800 miles later, he landed in Los Angeles.

On stage, Anders played the lead role in the world premiere of Rockne: The Musical.  He also appeared in the world premiere of Beautiful at the New York Fringe Festival and The Diary of Anne Frank, which received an award for Best Ensemble performance at the Backstage West Garland Awards. Anders' other television roles include guest star appearances on Grey’s Anatomy, Warehouse 13, Deadwood, C.S.I., C.S.I.: Miami and Charmed.  His feature film work includes Into the Blue 2 and the offbeat, underground zombie feature The Revenant.

In his spare time, he teaches summer tennis courses to children in Los Angeles.  When he’s not on the court, he can likely be found on the links.  He plays golf as often as he can, including participating in celebrity Pro-Am events and charity events across the country.
