Some film credits include the yet-to-be-released Pretty Ugly People as well as Phat Girlz, Undercover Brother, Poster Boy, U-571, Unconditional Love, Breakdown, Event Horizon, The Brady Bunch Movie, Barb Wire, Cecil B. DeMented, and Alive. He has had the good fortune to work with such varied directors as P.J Hogan, Paul Anderson, Betty Thomas, John Waters, and Jonathan Mostow.
On television, you may have seen him as a suspected rapist on CSI, a child molester on Law & Order: SVU, a rogue cop on Crossing Jordan, an arsonist and stalker on Judging Amy, and the only son of a spaceship on The Outer Limits. Clearly, all these roles were preparing him for the role of "Kit." Jack also has the distinction of being the series lead on MTV's first scripted series, Dead At 21.
Early in his career, Jack toured in the musical Cats, made his Broadway debut in
the original company of Jerome
Robbins' Broadway, and was the final actor to be cast in the
original run of the Broadway blockbuster A Chorus Line. His personal opening
night in that show -- which was 17 years after the show opened on
Broadway -- was the same day they announced the show would be closing
so, basically, Jack shut it down. Other favorite roles include Alan
Strang in Equus (L.A. Drama
Critics' Award for Best Actor), Pippin
at the Papermill Playhouse, Jamie in The
Last Five Years, and the role of Dallas in Sweet Smell of Success opposite
John Lithgow and composed by Marvin Hamlisch, who apparently forgave
him for shutting down A Chorus Line.
Look for Jack opposite Bruce Willis in Disney's The Surrogates.
