Jordan Bridges

Jordan Bridges   Born 13 November 1973   Actor

Jordan P Bridges is the son of Beau Bridges of the famous Bridges acting dynasty.  Often wondered why he didn't get to make a guest appearance on Stargate:SG1 alongside his father.  That would have been awesome to watch.  His first acting role was in The Kid From Nowhere which was directed by his father.


Jordan didn't want a career in acting especially as a child actor but later changed his mind after he attended Oakwood school and even studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA).  He studied performing arts at Bard College.  But coming from such a prominent acting family, it was difficult to imagine him being anything but an actor.  You could call it typecasting, of sorts! He is also into poetry, fencing, Kung Fu.

Appearing in many TV films and shows, ranging from Dawson's Creek to Charmed, CSI:NY,  Law and Order: Criminal Intent.   Conviction, cancelled after one season, is where he would have made the greatest impact in his role as Nick Potter, a lawyer from a wealthy family, who makes a transition to the Manhattan DA's Office.  He was the newbie on the show and it was like we were fresh out of law school too, following him around from day one to see what sort of an affect being an ADA would have on him.  He portrayed Nick with naivety and a touch of innocence as he landed in hot water.  A shame the series was cancelled since I would have watched that for Jordan alone!

Brown hair and lovely brown eyes, he is so gorgeous in his leather jacket!  Though I'm not so sure about him sporting a beard! Ha.  He looks great in a suit too, in stripes which seem to suit him and striped shirts. Jordan is just too hot to handle!

He now continues to wow in the TNT series Rizzoli and Isles playing Frank Rizzoli Jnr, a police officer. Proving once more that we all love a man in uniform.
