A talented supporting player whose numerous film roles may have captured the very essence of infrequently showered gen-X angst, actor Jack Noseworthy may be best known for his frequent portrayal of dingy rockers with a bad attitude and an axe to grind. Still, with roles in such thrillers as the Jonathan Mostow thrillers U-571 and Breakdown, Noseworthy has proven he could transfer his grungy persona to compelling roles as a questionably slow-witted grease-monkey or a member of a distressed WWII submarine crew with equal measures of zeal and conviction. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Noseworthy gained early experience when, in his late teens, he joined a national touring production of Cats. Soon picking up numerous other roles after relocating to New York City, the struggling young actor would next receive his B.F.A. from the Boston Conservatory. After becoming the last actor ever to be hired to join the cast of A Chorus Line, Noseworthy would get an early break in front of the camera with a role in the Bon Jovi music video "Always." A natural in front of the camera, roles in films such as Encino Man (1992) and Alive (1993) were soon to follow, paving the way to a comfortable mid- to late-'90s career with roles in such popular films as S.F.W. (1994), The Brady Bunch Movie (1995), and Breakdown. Roles in Clean and Narrow and U-571 found Noseworthy expanding his dramatic range, and the actor proved that he indeed had a sense of humor with roles in such later films as John Waters' Cecil B. Demented and the blaxploitation parody Undercover Brother (2002). ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
