Actor

Biography

During the 12 years Jamie McShane was trying to gain work as an actor, he often taught tennis and strung rackets to support himself.  With a trio of series roles over the last decade that includes FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” (2008-2010), TNT’s Southland (2011-20134) and most recently, Netflix’s Emmy-nominated “Bloodline” (2015-2017), McShane is now well established in the field.  While he was cast in the regular role of Eric O’Bannon in “Bloodline,” which wrapped up a three-year run in May, McShane also had a pivotal recurring role in TNT’s “Murder in the First” (2014-2016).  In film, he has appeared in “Nightcrawler” and “Gone Girl.” The University of Richmond (’88) graduate has backpacked through Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and has authored several children’s books.  Although McShane’s main interest was hockey as a youngster, he is a 4.5 to 5.0-level tennis player – something that is no secret after playing in his first Pro-Celebrity event last year. He is the father of two boys.
