He starred as Graham Chase, the soft-spoken father in the 1994 ABC television series My So-Called Life. He has had numerous other television acting appearances, including Angel and ER. He had a recurring role on the television series Saving Grace for three seasons, beginning in 2007. He made his Broadway debut in 1990 in The Grapes of Wrath. Irwin, who has also appeared in various movie roles, lives in Los Angeles, California. In 2002 he played the part of Gerry in London's West End production of Up for Grabs with Madonna. In 1999, he starred in No Higher Love, with Katey Sagal and Annabeth Gish, about a woman with a terminal illness who chooses someone to take over for her as wife and mother.
- After filming the tango scene for the pilot, Irwin and Rebecca Wisocky (Evelyn Powell) swore to take tango lessons if Devious Maids was picked up. They wound up taking a few lessons and loved it, though they stopped for a while until learning they'd be dancing together again in the second season's episode "You Can't Take It With You". As such, they took a few more lessons thus giving them a little bit of a base.
