Bio

Jack Scalia is an American actor who has appeared predominantly in drama, horror, action, and thriller films.

Scalia was born in Brooklyn, New York to a baseball player father. He was drafted third by the Montreal Expos in the 1971 as a pitcher.

He began his career as a clothes model, most notably in a series of ads for Eminence briefs which capitalized on his "beefcake" appeal.

In 1982, to promote his TV series, The Devlin Connection, Scalia took off his shirt and posed, cigarette in hand, for a pin-up wall poster.

Scalia was a regular cast member during the final season of Remington Steele in 1987, after which he joined the cast of Dallas in the role of Nicholas Pierce, love interest to Sue-Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray).

Scalia's character was killed off at the end of the 1987-88 season as he was sent falling to his death after being pushed from a balcony in a fight with J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman).

He returned to the series finale in a dream sequence in which he was married to Sue-Ellen.

In 1992, Scalia was cast as Detective Nico "Nick" Bonetti in the short-lived TV series Tequila and Bonetti. Scalia replaced another actor in the role during production of the show's first episode.

Eight years later, in 2000, Scalia reprised the role of Bonetti in a revival of the series, which was filmed and aired in Italy.

Scalia is also known for his role as Chris Stamp on All My Children from 2001 to 2003. He was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Lead Actor" for his AMC role in 2002.

In 2006, Scalia starred as President Halstrom in The Genius Club for writer/director Tim Chey. The film is about seven geniuses who must try to solve the world's problems in one night.
