Bio

Jon Michael Hill is an American actor best known for his starring role as Detective Damon Washington in the police procedural crime drama television series Detroit 1-8-7, from 2010-2011.

He currently stars as Detective Marcus Bell in the crime drama series Elementary, a contemporary reimagining of the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, since 2012.

A 2010 Tony Award nominee for his Broadway debut in Superior Donuts, Hill got hooked on acting as a first-grader in Waukegan, Illinois, after watching a performance of a story he wrote about his brother getting lost at the zoo.

Though playing high school football and saxophone in the band later occupied much of his extracurricular time, it was the school stage where Hill continued to find his true passion.

After attending a summer drama program for high school students at Northwestern University, Hill decided to make his passion his future.

He went on to earn a BFA in Acting from the University of Illinois, where his favourite roles included Edgar in King Lear, Paul in Six Degrees of Separation, Pete Gint in Gint and himself in Ain't Misbehavin'.

Still in college, Hill was the youngest ensemble member of the acclaimed Steppenwolf Theater Company in Chicago, which premiered Superior Donuts by Tracy Letts - the play that later would bring him to Broadway.

In addition to scoring a Tony nomination that year, Hill's performance as Franco Wicks in Superior Donuts brought him an Outer Critics Circle Award, Theater World Award and Drama League nomination.

Hill also won over audiences in New York and Houston as Puck in different stagings of A Midsummer Night's Dream - Dan Sullivan's production of the Shakespearean classic in New York City's Central Park and Neil Armfield's production of a version by Benjamin Britten at the Houston Grand Opera.

Audiences in Atlanta also saw him at the Alliance Theater in Tina Landau's production of In the Red and Brown Water.
