The series was nominated this year for a total of 17 Emmys.

Burrell has wrapped production on Christopher Neil's film Goats, an adaptation of a story by Mark Jude Poirier, opposite Vera Farmiga, David Duchovny, Minnie Driver and Keri Russell. He will also soon be seen in Butter, opposite Jennifer Garner, for the Weinstein Company, playing a butter-carving champ who's forced to step down. Most recently he was seen in Morning Glory, opposite Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton for Roger Michel. Burrell previously played Dr. Samson in Universal's The Incredible Hulk, opposite Edward Norton and Liv Tyler for Louis Leterrier, and was in National Treasure 2, opposite Nicolas Cage.

Additional films include Finn Taylor's romantic comedy The Darwin Awards, which premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival, David Jacobson's Down in the Valley opposite Edward Norton and Evan Rachel Wood, the Weitz Brothers' In Good Company, Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down, Dawn of the Dead (Cannes Film Festival) and Ivan Reitman's Evolution.

Television credits include the FOX sitcom Back to You, with Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton, and CBS' Out of Practice, opposite Stockard Channing and Henry Winkler.
