Bio

Jesse Metcalfe is an American actor best known for his role as John Rowland on the comedy-drama television series Desperate Housewives, from 2004-2009.

He also starred as Christopher Ewing, the adopted son of Bobby Ewing and his first wife Pam, in the primetime soap opera Dallas, from 2012-2014.

Jesse formerly starred as Luke Watson, the fresh-faced newcomer to the Houston Enforcement & Apprehension Task Force (H.E.A.T.); whose Washington, D.C. upbringing did little to prepare him for the Lone Star state, in the police procedural television series Chase, from 2010-2011.

He also hosted the 2008 World Music Awards.

Born in Monterey, California, and raised in Waterford, Connecticut, Metcalfe was always a fan of the arts. After studying at New York University at the famed Tisch School of the Arts, he went on an open audition, which earned him a role in the hit daytime drama Passions.

For four years he honed his craft while mesmerizing the daytime audience, breaking more than a few hearts with his 2004 departure from the show.

A SAG Award-winning actor, Metcalfe may be best known for his role as John Rowland, the gardener working for (and playing with) wealthy ex-model Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria) in the pop culture phenomenon Desperate Housewives.

He later appeared in the television movie Fairfield Road.

Metcalfe's move to the big screen happened in 2006 when he starred as the lead title character in John Tucker Must Die. He was also seen starring opposite Michael Douglas in Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, the romantic comedy The Other End of the Line and The Tortured opposite Erika Christensen.

Metcalfe received the 2005 Young Hollywood Award for Exciting New Face, and has been nominated for two Teen Choice Awards, including one for Choice Actor in a Television Comedy.

Outside of work, Metcalfe is a huge sports fan with strong loyalty to the New England/New York teams - the Knicks, Patriots and Yankees. He also works out religiously and is a regular on the basketball court.

A music lover, Metcalfe is an accomplished guitarist. He's also into motorbikes, classic cars and is an avid poker player.
