Dogged investigator or reckless renegade?
Jeremy Sisto stars as Knapp, a professional who works outside the law's strict rulebook to retrieve kidnapping victims and guide families through the process in NBC's new drama "Kidnapped."
"Kidnapped" is a high-stakes serialized thriller in which the 15-year-old son of a wealthy Upper East Side family is kidnapped and everyone is a suspect. The series focuses on the elaborate, triangulated game between the kidnappers, FBI and law enforcement, and the private negotiating team contracted by this perhaps not-so-picture-perfect family.
The Chicago native began his theatrical career early when he appeared onstage at the Goodman Theater in a production of Tennessee Williams' last play, "A House Not Meant to Stand," as well as Bertolt Brecht's "Galileo," opposite Brian Dennehy.
In Los Angeles, Sisto's theater credits include: Richard Greenburg's Tony Award-winning play "Take Me Out" at the Geffen Playhouse (the role earned him a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Featured Performance) and Sidney Kingsley's "Dead End" at the Ahmanson Theater. Sisto also recently made his Broadway debut in the play "Festen," a stage adaptation of Thomas Vintenberg's film "The Celebration."
Sisto was part of the esteemed cast of HBO's award-winning drama series "Six Feet Under," in which he played the role of Billy Chenoweth for five seasons. His other television credits include the leads in two widely viewed miniseries in "Jesus" and "Julius Caesar."
On the film side, Sisto's credits include: "Thirteen," opposite Holly Hunter, as well as "Grand Canyon," "Clueless," "Without Limits," "White Squall," "Suicide Kings," "May," "Angel Eyes" and "Hideaway."
Sisto also starred in and co-produced the independent film "One Point O," which played in the Sundance Film Festival dramatic competition.
Sisto will soon be seen in three upcoming films: the dramatic thriller "Unknown," with Jim Caviezel; the edgy drama "Broken," opposite Heather Graham; and "Waitress," opposite Keri Russell, for director Adrienne Shelley.
