Actor Jonathan Tucker was born on May 31, 1982. A native of Boston, MA, Tucker attended the Park School in Brookline, MA and was raised in Boston's Irish neighborhood of Charlestown. Tucker set his sights on Hollywood at an early age, kicking off his acting career with a starring role in a third grade production of "The Nutcracker Suite." While attending the Thacher School in Ojai, CA, Tucker applied to and was accepted to Columbia University on an early admission. Tucker made his major screen debut in director Barry Levinson's "Sleepers" (1996) as the Young Tommy Marcano (a character played by Billy Crudup as an adult). Arriving in Hollywood in the early 2000's, Tucker made the rounds guest-starring on a myriad of prime time offerings such as "The Practice" (ABC, 1997-2004), "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 2000-15) "Law & Order: SVU" (NBC, 1999- ) and "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05). After several years cutting his guest star teeth, Tucker graduated to a show of his very own in 2007, starring as Tommy Donnelly in Paul Haggis' highly anticipated new crime drama, "The Black Donnellys" (NBC, 2007). Hyped by the trades as NBC's Irish answer to "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007), "The Black Donnellys" was an inter-generational family saga set in Boston's tough south side.
