Johnny Farrell (Michael Mosley) is pretty much an average sports loving, beer drinking, donut munching guy who happens to be an amazing EMT.  From the little details to the big picture, Johnny has everything covered when he’s on an emergency call.  

The rest of his life?  Eh, not so much.  But he’s trying to get his shit together.  After nearly losing the off-again, on-again love of his life, Theresa, due to his commitment issues, Johnny finally sacked up and proposed.  And while the wedding didn’t go off as planned (the church was a front for an illegal cock-fighting ring, yes really), Johnny and T are hotter than ever.  Johnny also patched things up with his firefighter father after 15 years of silence.  But despite the progress he’s made, relationship problems and daddy issues don’t work themselves out over night, and Johnny has still got his work cut out for him.

Michael Mosley stars as the good-looking, sports-loving Chicago EMT Johnny Farrell on USA Network’s hit comedy series SIRENS.

Mosley has been bringing characters to life on stage, film, and television for the past decade. On the film front, Mosley has appeared in Other People’s Children, opposite Chad Michael Murray, Alexandra Breckenridge and directed by Liz Hinlein. He also can be seen in Don’t Mess With Texas opposite Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara.

Born in Iowa City, Iowa, Mosley is an alumnus of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, and was a 2001 company member. Upon graduating he performed in numerous theatres including the SoHo Playhouse, Cherry Lane, and Michael Imperioli’s Studio Dante.
