The character of Michael Garibaldi on Babylon 5 is not far removed from the real Jerry Doyle, as they both have high standards, audacity, are outspoken and have a vivid past. Like his character, Jerry is not one for proceeding in life on the normal track.
At the height of a ten year career on Wall Street, Jerry decided a new career challenge was in order. In 1991, he packed up and headed to Hollywood. With no acting experience, Doyle hit the streets and the phones with a vengeance.
A combination of luck, timing and talent resulted in his almost immediately booking a role as a "day player" on The Bold and the Beautiful - a part that lasted almost one year. Then came recurring roles on Homefront, Reasonable Doubts and the animated series Duckman. In July of 1992, he shot the pilot for Babylon 5, and in 1998, completed his 110th episode and final season on the hit series, landing him on the cover of TV Guide. Simultaneously, Jerry starred in the animated series Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys, lending his voice to the main character, Captain Simian. In 1998, Jerry starred in two TNT original movies, The River of Souls and A Call to Arms. He has recently finished filming the independent feature film Devious Beings as well as starring other TV progams such as Martial Law, Sliders and Beverly Hills 90210. Jerry's voice can also be heard in numerous TV and radio commercials.
Jerry grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., the eldest son of a police officer and a stay-at-home mom. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, while also receiving his flight training. After graduation, he joined the marketing and sales division of Falcon Jet Corporation.
