With his distinct yet pleasant "everyman" appearance, Sam Jaeger largely built up his career resumé with a string of guest appearances on television programs during the late '90s and into the first decade of the new millennium -- including Law & Order, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Scrubs. Cinematically, Jaeger tackled small roles in the 2006 gangster comedy Lucky Number Slevin (starring Ben Kingsley) and the 2007 Jennifer Garner-headlined romantic comedy-drama Catch and Release. The next year, he was cast on the fantastical legal drama Eli Stone as slick, competitive lawyer Matt Dowd. Over the next few years, Jaeger would find success on the TV series Parenthood. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
