Jake Abel Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Nov 18, 1987
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Jake Abel began signing for television and film roles in his late teens. Despite a deceptively clean-cut appearance, Abel specialized (at least initially) in portrayals of super-intense, conniving, slimy young men with more than a few ulterior motives. He was particularly memorable on the short-lived, prime-time science fiction drama [[Feature~V285829~Threshold~threshold]] (as a deeply disturbed adolescent whose exposure to an audio signal gave him super strength) and as a slightly sadistic coach who gets the surprise of his life when he challenges a young female figure skater to a game of hockey in the Disney-produced feature [[Feature~V355224~Go Figure~gofigure]] (2005). In 2007, Abel signed for two of his first major feature roles: one in the raunchy stoner comedy [[Feature~V341937~Strange Wilderness~strangewilderness]] (2008) and a much different supporting turn as the son of an inventor ([[Performer~P200274~Greg Kinnear~gregkinnear]]) who gets bilked out of a fortune by the auto industry in the biopic [[Feature~V405349~Flash of Genius~flashofgenius]] (2008). In 2010, he played the supporting role of Luke Castellan in Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, later reprising his role in the 2013 sequel, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Abel's résumé also includes appearances on such programs as [[Feature~V308522~Summerland~summerland[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V273921~CSI: Miami~csi:miami[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V295888~Cold Case~coldcase[tvseries]]], ER, Supernatural and Grey's Anatomy. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
