Darkly-handsome with dreamy brown hair and hazel eyes while just smoldering with charisma and attitude, Jeremy Vincent Garrett was one American actor and model that didn't just want to be just one more pretty face de jour. Damn it, he wanted to be an actor.
Like oh-so many others, Jeremy's first foray into acting was in high school drama club. He saw it as the start of something. He wanted to make drama his absolute major. The coach urged Jeremy to keep right on reaching. He eventually found his way to the professional theatre and was granted such plums as Algernonin in "The Importance of Being Earnest," as well as in several one-act plays. Jeremy also put those pin-up supermodel cover-boy Indo-European looks of his to good use by modeling professionally before even acting. And while modeling was paying the bills, he continued to chase acting around. He auditioned mostly for the theatre.
He also performed La Jolla Playhouse in a festival of plays that took a look at racial bigotry, and in "Jason's Mask" at the Old Globe in San Diego, as part of the Young Playwrights Festival. He portrayed an alpha-male jock who's something of a mad prankster. He finally had his first major TV guest spot on the basketball-based series "Hang Time" as a former all-state basketball star athlete for Deering who's now managing the restaurant. He seems like the perfect guy... but we later see he's been sexually harassing Mary-Beth. And not long after this debt, he got to host for KPBS in his local hometown of San Diego. Even garnering a regional Emmy nomination for it. And all during his second semester of college.
And folks, accomplishing all this at such a tender age led to steady work in the public eye--that big break was replacing fellow pretty-boy actor Ryan Bittle in the plum role of Todd Wilkins, longtime boyfriend to Elizabeth Wakefield in the TV series adaptation of "Sweet Valley High." Jeremy found himself profiled heavily in magazines, on covers from the book-series as well as other SVH-based propaganda.
After the "Sweet Valley High" was cancelled due to incredibly low ratings (the show had strayed away from the book series and just got more and more campy), he grabbed guest-sints on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Nick Freno", "CSI: Miami," "Ally McBeal," "Hangtime" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch".
He managed another regular steady-spot as Clay Logan on the short-lived civil-war period soap "Legacy" as one Clay Hogan. After that ended, he recurred on the WB's "Jack & Jill."
His most recent role was the TV movie "Lies and The Women We Tell Them To" along with Kyle Chandler, Martine McCutcheon, Ed Helms. Since then, seems to have been staying quiet since. Jeremy seems to have just vanished.
He once remarked he wanted to get into fashion photography as that's what he started out doing. But to be the one taking the shots instead of being taken himself. He got into photography after his dad bought him a camera and wound up taking classes.
And finally, finally... after a seven-year absence from the public eye, he finally returned as an on-screen actor in the short art-house film "The Abandoned Circus" as "The Good Conscience" in 2012.
Just please, don't confuse him with that bluegrass guy from Tennessee who just happens to have been blessed with the same moniker.
