Biography

A prolific and dynamic television actor, Jack Coleman has appeared on the small screen for decades, turning up in everything from soap operas to fantasy/sci-fi shows. Shortly after graduating from Duke University, Coleman debuted on the popular daytime melodrama "Days of Our Lives" (NBC, 1965- ) and later joined the cast of the primetime show "Dynasty" (ABC, 1981-1989) in 1982, taking over the role of groundbreaking gay character Steven Carrington from Al Corley. Although Coleman had trouble finding steady high-profile parts after his long "Dynasty" stint," he eventually came back into prominence with his key role on the tense drama "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-2010), which featured him as one of the only non-super-powered regulars. Following his tenure on "Heroes," he went on to a variety of shows, including "The Office" (NBC, 2005-2013), "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ) and "Burn Notice" (USA Network, 2007-2013), with Coleman showcasing his signature charisma in any scenario, no matter how mundane or supernatural.
