Bio

Jim Parrack is an American actor best known for his starring role as Hoyt Fortenberry in the vampire horror television series True Blood, from 2008-2014.

Parrack made his professional acting debut in 2006's Annapolis as A.J. His portrayal of the rough and tumble, blue collar boxer led to a series of guest spots on television shows including Grey's Anatomy, CSI, ER, Monk, Standoff and Close to Home.

In 2007 he showed audiences his depth and range in two consecutive guest-starring roles. First on Criminal Minds, he played a deranged serial killer who hunted people in the wild with a bow and arrow, followed immediately by a sensitive look at a Colorado Sheriff's Deputy who has lost his mother on Raines, alongside Jeff Goldblum.

Jim grew up in the small Texas town of Allen. He moved to Los Angeles and studied acting for two years at The Stella Adler Academy. But it wasn't until studying under Robert Carnegie at Playhouse West that he began to find fulfillment and opportunity in his acting.

A veteran of numerous plays in Los Angeles, he was a student at Playhouse West and could be seen there monthly in the critically acclaimed play Welcome Home Soldier.
