Biography

Amiable and charmingly unassuming, actor Jesse Bradford made an early name for himself as a reliable child actor prior to making the often difficult transition to accomplished adult performer. A Connecticut native and the son of acting parents, he made his film debut at age four in Ulu Grosbard's drama, "Falling in Love" (1984). Working steadily throughout his childhood, by his teens Bradford was appearing alongside such superstars on the rise as Angelina Jolie in "Hackers" (1995) and Leonardo DeCaprio in Baz Lurhmann's pop adaptation of Shakespeare's "Romeo + Juliet" (1996). As he came into his own, the actor took on the role of leading man in projects like the thriller "Swimfan" (2002) and the sci-fi adventure "Clockstoppers" (2002). Equally adept at both comedy and drama, Bradford often lent his support as part of an ensemble in films as diverse as Don Roos' indie comedy "Happy Endings" (2005) to Clint Eastwood's WWII epic "Flags of Our Fathers" (2006). It was a pattern he continued to follow with work in anticipated features like Oliver Stone's examination of the 43rd president, "W." (2008) and the buddy comedy, "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" (2009). Bradford's utility as a team player, combined with his ability to carry a film as its lead, ensured the actor a long and fruitful career in both independent and mainstream projects.
