Biography

This handsome, dependable actor achieved that television rarity - starring on two very different and equally popular TV series - first, as older brother and patriarch Charlie to the orphaned Salinger clan on Fox's family drama "Party of Five" (1994-2000), and a decade later, as cool-under-pressure Dr. Jack Shephard, one of several marooned plane crash survivors on ABC's adventure drama, "Lost (2004-2010). On both shows, Fox exuded a natural calm and confidence whenever chaos loomed, bringing the former model-turned-actor a loyal fan base of women smitten with his scruffy looks, as well as men impressed by his take-charge attitude.

Fox was arrested in August 2011 after allegedly assaulting female bus driver Heather Bormann. The actor was accused of punching Bormann when she refused to let him on a bus that had been rented by a bachelor party he was involved with in Cleveland, OH. In September 2011, Bormann filed a $25,000 lawsuit against Fox for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress over the alleged incident. Fox counter-sued Bormann in November 2011, claiming that she was the one who physically attacked him and has subjected him to "public hatred, contempt, ridicule and shame." Bormann dismissed her lawsuit against Fox in May 2012, while he also dropped his defamation case against her.
