Bio

Kristoffer Polaha is an American actor best known for his starring television roles as Jason Matthews on North Shore (2004-2005), as Nate Bazile in Life Unexpected (2010-2011) and as Henry Butler in Ringer, from 2011-2012.

He also had a starring role as Nolan Adams, a third-year associate at the firm, in the legal drama series Made in Jersey, in 2012.

Born in the dusty town of Reno, Nevada, Polaha never shot anyone just to watch them die, though he is a fan of the late Johnny Cash.

The fourth son of four boys belonging to Jerome and Esther Polaha, it was difficult to get any attention when he was growing up, so he became an actor. He fancied himself an intense "method thespian" while in high school at Robert Louis Stevenson and tried unsuccessfully to trademark the term.

After earning his chops at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, he received a rave review in the New York Times for his role as John Brown in Eugene O'Neill's Bread and Butter.

He went on to play JFK, Jr. in the TBS movie of the week, America's Prince. He's guest starred on Mad Men, Bones, House and CSI: Miami, among others and starred on North Shore and the short-lived sitcom Miss Guided.

Kristoffer is happily married to Julianne Morris, with whom he has three children.
