Jerry Doyle was born on July 16, 1956. He is the son of a police officer father and a stay-at-home mother. During his junior year of high school, Jerry and his family moved to New Jersey. Jerrys father died while he was still young, leaving him, his brother and his mother to cary on, as they did valiantly.

After Graduating high school, his family moved to Daytona Beach, Florida, where Jerry attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. He graduated from the university with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautics.

After gruating from the University, Jerry got a job with Falcon Jets in New Jersey. At Falcon, Jerry was involved with both the sales and marketing of private and commercial jets (and I hear he was quite good at his job). His next job was a complete career change. He became an investment banker on Wall Street, working for Drexel Burnham. Staying on Wall Street, Jerry moved to Prudential Bache, where he remained for the next nine years.

In 1987, while still working on Wall Street, a friend of Jerry's suggesting him for a part on the Television series "Moonlighting" where he was dramatically united with his long lost brother Bruce Willis (couldn't resist). He got the part, though it was a small one. After completing filming, Jerry returned to New York. But discovering that he could be paid for having fun was a breakthrough for him, and he was struck by the Hollywood Dream.

Jerry's resume up to this time had included only business and Wall Street jobs and contacts, so Jerry decided he would "create" a more asthetically desirable resume for Hollywood. With tongue firmly planted in cheek, he included a reference to the "Harlem Dance Academy" (notable since Jerry is not African American). Weather it was noticed or not, Jerry would not be stopped by a "lack of experience".

In 1991, he moved to Los Angeles, found an agent, and began his professional acting career. When asked why he decided to become an actor, in convention appearances and several magazine interviews, Jerry always has the same answer: "babes and bucks".

His first real role, was on the soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful". Other roles on Television programs included "Home Front"*, "Reasonable Doubts", "Renegade" (where he had to ride a motorcycle - which, contrary to popular belief, scares the crap out of him. "I want lots of metal around me," he says in regards to motorcycles.), and finally, "Babylon 5". Jerry has also appeared in feature films, including "Kidnapped" and "Being in Time" and made for t.v. movie on the Sci Fi Channel "The Outsiders".

Jerry has spent some time performing on stage (not including conventions) and, most recently, as a voice actor. He recorded the voice for Captain Simian on "Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys" for 26 episodes of the half hour cartoon series. He recently said how exciting it was to be around great actors like Michael Dorn and Malcom MacDowal who also do voices for Space Monkeys.

In 1992 Jerry met his future wife, Andrea Thompson. Andrea also did some voice work for Captain Simian . Jerry and Andrea were divorced in 1997.

Jerry is a well known supporter of NASA. He was recently honored by the guys at NASA who named one of the Mars Rover rocks "Garibaldi" in his honor. Jerry has attended and continues to accept invites to shuttle launches. Jerry is almost embarassed at the attention from NASAs astronauts who he calls "the true pioneers of the modern age" and "real heros".

Don't expect to find Jerry online, he has admitted to being a "technophobe". He is extremely attentive and cooperative with his fans, and loves to make conventions.

Jerry starred in the Babylon 5 movies "River of Souls" and in the Crusade launch, "Call to Arms".

Jerry has reported that he has several irons in the fire, so keep an eye on this site for future role announcements. Although his announcement to run for public office (local Congress) has put some doubts as to his future in acting - but hey - politics didn't affect Clint Eastwood's career!
