Biography

Actor James Badge Dale came from a family of entertainers, yet carved his own successful Hollywood career with stellar performances in film and on television. He made his big screen debut in the adaptation of "Lord of the Flies" (1990) as a mysterious young man who meets a tragic end at the hands of his fellow island castaways. Unlike most actors who have early career starts, Dale did not grow up on screen, taking years off from the business to become a professional athlete. When an injury stalled his dreams of playing hockey, Dale made a triumphant return to acting with a compelling performance as a secret agent on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). Even though his character lasted only one season on the award-winning series, the actor won over critics and audiences enough to land a high profile starring role on "The Pacific" (HBO, 2010). Produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, the ambitious, 10-part epic told the harrowing personal experiences of U.S. Marines during World War II. Dale's breakout performance as a real life soldier-turned-historian Robert Leckie was the emotional core of "The Pacific," and solidified his status as one of the hardest working and most evocative actors in Hollywood.
