From a 400-year-old vampire working to keep his identity under wraps, to a
charming, manipulative serial killer confounding the doctor assigned to his
case, and a portrayal of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, JASON
DOHRING has brought to live some of the most diverse characters to the
big and small screens over the last few years. Dohring can next be seen
reprising his starring role as 'Logan Echolls' opposite Kristen Bell in Warner
Bros' VERONICA MARS, hitting theaters nationwide March 14, 2014. The film picks
up where the hit television series left off; after ten years Logan finds himself
the number one suspect in a murder, and he needs Veronica [Kristen Bell] to help
clear his name, and crack the case. VERONICA MARS recently made theatrical
history, becoming one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all time,
raising over $5.7 million dollars to make the movie from over 90,000 fans and
supporters. In addition to VERONICA MARS, Dohring recently filmed independent
feature THE SQUEEZE, opposite Jeremy Sumpter.
Born in Toledo, Ohio and raised in Los Angeles, Dohring got his start in
entertainment at a young age. His family made the move to LA when he was four
years old- his siblings, identical twin brothers and identical twin sisters all
worked steadily, and he wanted to follow in their footsteps. By eight years old
he was booking print and television jobs, and launched his theatrical career at
11 years old. He attended the Young Actor's Space, where he honed his craft and
studied alongside Jessica Biel and Allison Mac. Some of his early credits
included guest star roles on: JAG, Boston Public, Cold Case, Judging Amy, and
In 2004, Dohring landed the breakout role as Logan Echolls on the hit series
VERONICA MARS opposite Kristen Bell. For three seasons he played the emotionally
volatile, son of a billionaire who ends up in a relationship with Veronica Mars.
Although the role was originally introduced to him as a one-dimensional
antagonist, the chemistry between Dohring and Bell was undeniable and producers
expanded their character's relationship throughout the episodes, leaving the
series finale with a question mark: would Logan and Veronica end up together.
In 2007, Dohring received a call from producer Joel Silver for a series
regular role in his new series for CBS, MOONLIGHT. From 2007-08 Dohring starred
as Josef Kostan, a 400-year-old, confident yet secretive hedge fund trading
vampire. Once MOONLIGHT wrapped, Dohring landed series roles in two high profile
pilots: WASHINGTONIENNE, produced by Sarah Jessica Parker for HBO, and BODY
POLITIC opposite Minka Kelly, Jay Hernandez and Gabrielle Union for CW. In 2012,
Dohring recurred on the CW's RINGER, opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar as Mr.
Carpenter, a teacher who becomes embroiled and set up in a fraudulent scheme.
Additional television credits include: FOX's Lie to Me, Starz' Party Down, ABC's
Motive, CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Warner Bros' Supernatural, CBS'
Rules of Engagement, and CW's The Tomorrow People.
Dohring has also made his mark in film, aside from his starring role in
VERONICA MARS, he was seen in DEEP IMPACT for Paramount Pictures, and
independent features BLACK CADILLAC opposite Randy Quaid for First Look
International, and SEARCHING FOR SONNY for FilmBuff, casting him once again
opposite Minka Kelly. Dohring has also been active with the prestigious Sundance
Director's Lab, attending twice. Considered the cornerstone of the year-round
support the Feature Film Program provides each year, the Directors Lab is held
for 3-4 weeks each June at the Sundance Resort in Sundance, Utah. A total of
eight projects, the vast majority of which have participated in a previous
Screenwriters Lab, are invited to participate. Dohring joined a select group of
actors and directors, including Sally Field, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robert
Redford to work on gritty, multi-dimensional characters including Oklahoma City
bomber, Timothy McVeigh.
When not working, Dohring lives a healthy lifestyle, recently building an
organic garden at his home with 36 fruit trees. He loves to ride motorcycles and
go golfing. He is also a supporter of CalPAL, the California Police Activities
league, where he recently helped raise over twenty thousand dollars for at risk
children. Dohring currently lives in the Los Angeles area.
