Jeffrey Dean Morgan Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Apr 22, 1966
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Many actors know from childhood that acting is the only job they'll ever want, but Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a rare exception. He pursued basketball in high school with tremendous success, until a knee injury ended his sports career, and he then trained and worked as a graphic artist for some time. Eventually, however, his interest in acting became overpowering, and Morgan moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting as a career, rather than just an interest. He found steady work appearing on shows like [[Feature~V179305~ER~er[tvseries]]] and [[Feature~V181391~Angel~angel[tvseries]]], eventually scoring a huge break in 2005 when he was cast in recurring roles on three different series: [[Feature~V323967~Grey's Anatomy~greysanatomy[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V332071~Weeds~weeds[tvseries]]], and [[Feature~V335323~Supernatural~supernatural[tvseries]]]. The shows put him on the map, especially [[Feature~V323967~Grey's Anatomy~greysanatomy[tvseries]]], and oddly enough, his characters died on all three shows. Morgan's career was still alive and kicking, however, and he was soon appearing in the comedy Kabluey opposite [[Performer~P230124~Christine Taylor~christinetaylor]] and [[Feature~V379746~The Accidental Husband~theaccidentalhusband]] with [[Performer~P70905~Uma Thurman~umathurman]] and [[Performer~P23590~Colin Firth~colinfirth]]. As the 2000's continued, Morgan would remain a consistant form on screen, appearing memorably as the Comedian in The Watchmen, Texas Killing Fields, and Red Dawn. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
