RENT

JESSE L. MARTIN (Tom Collins) is an accomplished actor and singer who has already made his mark in the worlds of theater, television and film and continues to establish himself by constantly bringing a winning combination of indelible charm, charisma and intensity to his roles.

This fall, Martin returned for his seventh season as the compulsive and passionate Detective Edward Green on the perennial hit "Law & Order.” He has received multiple SAG nominations (Ensemble) and five Image Awards nominations (Outstanding Actor) for his work on the show.

Martin received critical acclaim for his recurring role on "Ally McBeal” as Ally's boyfriend, Dr. Greg Butters. His additional television credits include a guest starring role as a disenfranchised alien on "The X-Files” (episode written and directed by David Duchovny), a series regular on the Fox series "413 Hope Street,” a guest-starring role on the Wolf Films/Studios USA series "New York Undercover” and the tele-film "Deep in My Heart” co-starring opposite Anne Bancroft and Gloria Reuben.

Past film credits include Season of Youth and the independent feature The Restaurant, in which he performed alongside Adrien Brody, Elise Neal and Lauryn Hill.

Martin made his Broadway debut in "Rent,” one of the longest running shows on Broadway. "Rent” was the winner on the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Obie Award, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, four Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards. Martin originated the role of Thomas B. "Tom" Collins in the off-Broadway production at the N.Y. Theatre Workshop and carried it through to the Broadway production.

His extensive New York theater credits run the gamut from Shakespeare to musical comedy and include such productions as "Timon of Athens” and "The Inspector General” (National Actors Theatre), "I Ain't Yo Uncle” (Hartford Stage), "Rock ‘N Roles from William Shakespeare” (Actors Theatre of Louisville), "The Butcher's Daughter” (Cleveland Playhouse), "Romeo & Juliet” (Acting Company Tour) and "Two Gentlemen of Verona” (Arena Stage).

A graduate of NYU and a classically trained stage actor, Martin currently resides in Manhattan.
