Biography

Jeremy Michael Jordan (born November 20, 1984) is an American actor and singer. He has performed on Broadway and in television and film, as well as in other theatrical productions. He is best known for the roles of Jack Kelly in the 2012 musical Newsies and Clyde Barrow in the 2011 musical Bonnie & Clyde. 

Jordan was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. His parents divorced when he was young, and he lived in low-income housing, with his brother, Joey, sister, Jessa, and mother, Debbie (née Stone). Jordan is Jewish on his mother's side (her parents' families were Jewish immigrants from Russia, Latvia, and Lithuania). He was a "straight A student", and graduated from Mary Carroll High School, where he was an active member of the choir. Later, he graduated from Ithaca College, where he earned a BFA in musical theatre. 

Jordan sang as a teenager, also beginning to act in high school. In 2008, he starred as Alex in The Little Dog Laughed at Hartford Theatreworks, for which he received a Connecticut Critics Circle nomination. Later the same year, he played Tom Sawyer in Big River at the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut. He appeared in the Broadway cast of Rock of Ages in 2009. He also made a 2008 television appearance, guest starring on NBC's Law & Order: SVU in the episode "Streetwise". 

Jordan starred as an alternate for the leading role of Tony in the 2009 Broadway revival of West Side Story. He also starred as Clyde Barrow in the 2010 pre-Broadway Sarasota, Florida tryout of the new musical, Bonnie & Clyde by Frank Wildhorn and Don Black. He debuted the role of Clyde when the show opened on Broadway on December 1, 2011. The show closed on December 30, 2011 after 36 performances. 

Jordan played Jack in the stage version of Newsies at the Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey in September and October 2011. 

He starred in the Warner Bros. film Joyful Noise, opposite Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer, and Dolly Parton. The film opened on January 13, 2012. 

Jordan reprised the lead role as Jack Kelly in Disney's Newsies on Broadway, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and book by Harvey Fierstein. Newsies opened at the Nederlander Theatre on March 29, 2012. For the role, Jordan was nominated for the 2012 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. He was nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album as a principal soloist on the Newsies original cast album. 

It was announced in June 2012 that Jordan would be joining the cast of NBC's Smash for season two playing Jimmy. He initially filmed episodes for Smash while simultaneously performing in Newsies until it was announced in August 2012 that his final performance in the musical would be September 4. 
Jordan played Jamie Wellerstein in The Last 5 Years, a film adaptation of the musical of the same name. Filming began in June 2013, and the film is scheduled for a February 2015 release date.
He appeared in the Stephen Sondheim and Wynton Marsalis staged concert A Bed and A Chair for Encores! at New York City Center from November 13 through 17, 2013, along with, among others, Norm Lewis and Bernadette Peters.
