Date of Birth : Mar 2nd 1962
The musician won his first starring role in John Duigan’s The Leading Man (1996). The film, which cast Bon Jovi as its title character — a seductive and conniving actor — earned lukewarm reviews and did negligible business at the box office. The aspiring actor was soon back in front of the camera, however, appearing in a string of films that included the submarine thriller U-571 (2000), in which he shared the screen with Matthew McConaughey, Harvey Keitel, and Bill Paxton, as well as Pay It Forward (2000), which cast him as Helen Hunt’s loutish, absentee husband. Bon Jovi also continued his work as a musician, releasing a solo album in 1997 and then regrouping with his band members in 2000.
