Biography

An Italian-born underwear model-turned-actor, Antonio Sabato, Jr. first dazzled audiences in 1990 with his sexy performance in the Janet Jackson video "Love Will Never Do (Without You)." Off-screen, he fathered a child with then-girlfriend Virginia Madsen, and onscreen proved so popular in the role of the brooding Jagger Cates on "General Hospital" (ABC, 1963- ) that he broke out of daytime to star as Alonzo Solace, a pilot on the sci-fi series "Earth 2" (NBC, 1994-95) and as Heather Locklear's abusive first husband on "Melrose Place" (Fox, 1992-99). A frequent guest star on various series, Sabato worked steadily in made-for-TV movies and genre projects, including playing an ex-Navy SEAL in "Codename: Wolverine" (Fox, 1996) or starring in the schlocky "Shark Hunter" (2001). He essayed a strong supporting turn as a mysteriously vanished gay man in the indie "Testosterone" (2003), played a personal trainer on the sitcom "The Help" (The WB, 2004) and returned to soap operas, first as a sexy sculptor on "The Bold and the Beautiful" (CBS, 1987- ) before reprising Jagger on "General Hospital: Night Shift" (SOAPnet, 2007-08). He won the reality competition "Celebrity Circus" (NBC, 2008) before earning his own dating show, "My Antonio" (VH1, 2009), which saw women competing for Sabato's hand as well as the approval of his formidable mother. Although he never achieved an acting role that equaled audiences' reactions to his beauty, Antonio Sabato Jr. carved out a lengthy acting career with a good-natured, likable self-awareness that only added to his allure.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Being described as a heartthrob really doesn't affect me. It's sometimes part of the job, but my main focus is to get the job done. I focus on doing a good job and let the rest stand for itself." – Sabato Jr.
