Plays Michael Westen

Renowned for his versatility and striking presence, Donovan has made a name for himself through memorable performances on both stage and screen.

As well as starring in the poignant 1920s-era drama Changeling, opposite Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich, Jeffrey received rave reviews for his performance in Don't Dress for Dinner at the Royal George Theatre in Chicago. The city's leading paper said, 'leading man Jeffrey Donovan recalls Cary Grant with his sexy charm, athleticism and gift for deadpan humour'.

Donovan was seen on the big screen as a captivating leading man in Come Early Morning, and as Jim Keith in the independent film Believe in Me - an adaptation of the young-adult novel Brief Garland by Harold Keith.

Other film credits include Hitch, Sleepers, Purpose, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and Bait. Donovan made his feature film debut in Throwing Down, which won the grand prize at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

In 2004, Donovan earned critical acclaim for his starring role as Detective David Creegan in the original series Touching Evil. His television credits include the original film When Trumpets Fade; recurring roles on Crossing Jordan, Spin City, The Beat, and The Pretender; and notable guest appearances on Monk, CSI: Miami, Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Streets.
