THE FIGHTER

JACK MCGEE (George Ward) was born and raised in the South Bronx, veteran character actor Jack McGee is the youngest of eight children. Admittedly, this may have been his impetus to strive to get noticed – and successfully so, as he was the president of his senior class and a star football player. Shortly thereafter he realized he had a knack for performing, and joined the 1960s rock band "The Young Rascals.” Eventually transitioning into acting, he was able to make ends meet as a New York City firefighter in the late 1970s. Appropriately so, he got his first big part in the 1985 firefighter film, TURK 182, and then moved to Hollywood where he went on to appear in a series of feature films, television movies, and TV series'.

Jack's most notable role has been as Chief Jerry Reilly on FX's edgy firefighter drama, "Rescue Me.” Most recently he has guest starred on such TV shows as "CSI: Miami,” "Criminal Minds,” "Brotherhood,” "CSI: NY,” "The Cleaner,” "Monk,” and "Castle.” Additionally, Jack appeared in the Tom Twyker action thriller THE INTERNATIONAL alongside Clive Owen and Naomi Watts.

Currently, Jack can be seen in the Spike TV series "Players,” and is recurring in the new ABC series, "The Whole Truth.” He just recently guest starred in an episode of "Lie to Me.” Jack will also be seen in THE FIGHTER, opposite Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale, FATHER OF INVENTION with Kevin Spacey, and early next year he will appear in DRIVE ANGRY with Nicholas Cage and MONEYBALL with Brad Pitt.
