In the new NBC drama "Outlaw," Jesse Bradford plays Eddie Franks, a tightly wound, rabidly ambitious Yale-educated attorney, recently hired as Cyrus Garza's (Jimmy Smits) law clerk.
From his first SAG job in 1979 until today at age 31, Bradford has quietly amassed a body of work matched by few actors of any age. In 2007, Bradford received a Vision Award for his performance in Clint Eastwood's World War II film "Flags of Our Fathers." Most recently, Bradford starred in Bob Gosse's "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell," based on the three-time New York Times best-selling book, as well as in Oliver Stone's "W" opposite Josh Brolin. He has also wrapped production on Yam Laranas' "The Echo" for Vertigo Entertainment.
As a child, Bradford received a Most Promising Actor nomination from the Chicago Film Critics for his breakthrough performance in Steven Soderbergh's "King of the Hill." He also received critical acclaim for his performances in Iain Softley's "Hackers" opposite Angelina Jolie; Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo & Juliet" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio; and Merchant Ivory's "A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries." In 2001 he received the Young Hollywood Award for Exciting New Face, followed by the surprise hits "Bring It On," "Clockstoppers," and "Swimfan," which marked three out of four consecutive films in wide release that opened at #1.
Bradford guest starred on a season of the Emmy Award-winning television series "The West Wing," followed by the comedy "Eulogy," opposite Ray Romano and Zooey Deschanel; Merchant Ivory's "Heights," opposite Glenn Close; and Don Roos' "Happy Endings," opposite Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Bradford graduated with a degree in film history from Columbia University. In his spare time he can be found playing guitar. Bradford currently resides in Los Angeles.
