Biography

Handsome, sandy-haired actor Jay R. Ferguson saw frequent ups and downs in his career, starting when he was auspiciously cast as Ponyboy, the idealistic, sweet-faced lead of "The Outsiders", a 1990 Fox series based on the hit S.E. Hinton novel and film of the same name. Despite the almost legendary status of its source material, "The Outsiders" didn't make it past thirteen episodes. Luckily for Ferguson, another job was already lined up and the young actor joined the cast of CBS' "Evening Shade" as the son of Burt Reynolds' football coach. A regular on the series from 1990-1993 and a recurring player from 1993-1994, Ferguson worked steadily and amassed a stable of fans, many of whom had initially noticed the performer in the teen magazine publicity blitz that met the debut of "The Outsiders".
