Better known as President Charles Logan on Fox's primetime drama 24 and Agent Virgil Minelli on CBS' The Mentalist, the 63-year-old actor is among the nation's roughly 700,000 ulcerative colitis sufferers. In 2010, he recorded a public service announcement for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America to raise awareness for this inflammatory bowel disease.

"Fortunately I have this disease under control with a combination of diet and diligence, but there are so many Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis patients out there suffering every day," Itzin said in a statement.
