At the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, he performed in Scenes From an Execution with Frank Langella.
He has guest starred in roles on Walker, Texas Ranger, F/X: The Series, Babylon 5, Maloney, and Silk Stalkings. He has appeared as a regular on the daytime soap opera, The Young and the Restless. He has appeared in feature films such as Vegas: C.O.D., The Killing Jar, and The Colonel's Last Flight.
However, throughout all these roles, he hadn't reached any major level of success until 2001 when he joined the cast of the FOX Network's television drama 24, where he played Tony Almeida, a government agent for a fictional agency called CTU (counter-terrorist unit). Bernard held the role for three seasons until his character was written out at the end of season 3. In 2005, however, Bernard returned to the show in the middle of its fourth season for a guest arc.
