Jeremy Jordan first appeared on Broadway in the musical “Rock of Ages.” He then won the starring role of Tony in Broadway’s revival of “West Side Story” followed by the initial production of “Bonnie & Clyde” in Sarasota, Florida, starring opposite Laura Osnes. This was followed by his first feature film, “Joyful Noise,” opposite Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah. Todd Graff, who wrote and directed the film, decided to cast him in the movie after coincidentally attending Jeremy’s very first performance as the lead in “Rock of Ages.” In the fall of 2011, Jeremy was cast as Jack Kelly in Disney’s world premiere production of “Newsies” at Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. He played Jack at night, and during the day rehearsed the Broadway production of “Bonnie & Clyde,” after which he returned to “Newsies” to star in its new run on Broadway, which earned him critical raves and a Tony nomination as Best Actor in a Musical for this star-making role – and a Grammy nomination for the “Newsies” cast album. While starring in “Newsies” on Broadway at night, he appeared regularly on NBC’s hit series “Smash.” Jeremy also starred in the film adaptation of “The Last 5 Years,” opposite Oscar and Tony nominee, Anna Kendrick, from the cult musical from Jason Robert Brown was directed by Richard LaGravenese. Jeremy also starred as real life “Peter Pan” writer J.M. Barrie in the stage musical version of “Finding Neverland,” directed by Tony-winner Diane Paulus at Boston’s legendary A.R.T. theatre. This year, Jeremy reprised his role as Jack Kelly in Disney’s live filmed stage production of “Newsies” which opened in movie theaters this past February. He also appears as the voice of Varian in Disney Channel’s new animated series, “Tangled,” based on the 2010 hit movie. Currently, Jeremy stars in The CW drama “Supergirl” opposite Melissa Benoist. He just completed the Broadway run of American Son opposite Kerry Washington. Jordan will appear on the Netflick version of “American Son” his Broadway turn as a police officer.
