Well known as the fast-talking, self-deprecating "Pacey Witter" from "Dawson's Creek," Joshua Jackson has been working in front of the camera for over 15 years, and was just seen starring in the well-received independent Canadian feature film "One Week."
Recently, Jackson enjoyed a successful run on London's West End starring in "A Life in the Theatre" alongside Patrick Stewart. The acclaimed comedy was written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning and Oscar-nominated David Mamet.
Jackson's feature film debut was in Michael Bortman's "Crooked Hearts," which he followed up with the "Mighty Ducks" trilogy, "Digger" and "Andre the Seal." Jackson's additional credits include "Bobby" for director Emilio Estevez, the psychological thriller "Shutter," "The Skulls," Rose Troche's acclaimed drama "The Safety of Objects," the HBO Films version of Moises Kaufman's groundbreaking play "The Laramie Project" and "Aurora Borealis" as a troubled young man opposite Donald Sutherland. He had noted cameos in Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's 11," "Scream 2," "Urban Legend" and "I Love Your Work." His additional feature film credits include "Cursed," "Gossip," Bryan Singer's "Apt Pupil" and "Cruel Intentions."
A Vancouver native, Jackson divides his time between his hometown and Los Angeles.
