Bio For: Chad Michael Murray
(The Latest Available Bio)

Actor and author, CHAD MICHAEL MURRAY, has showcased his brooding good looks and talents on television sets and silver screens for over a decade. Chad is currently starring as fan favorite, Jacob Orr, in paranoiac thriller, "CHOSEN," a Sony's Original Series for their online network, Crackle. He also recently landed a role in the upcoming History miniseries, "Texas Rising," with an all-star cast ranging from Bill Paxton to Ray Liotta. Later in 2014, he is starring as Buck Williams, a journalist trapped and preparing for the rapture in the remake of "Left Behind" with Nicolas Cage, and as a homeless heroin junkie in the independent feature "Other People's Children;" extending his versatile career to a new level.

The second oldest of five siblings, Murray was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. Throughout his childhood, Chad was more the 'jock' than the 'drama nerd,' with an active role on the football and track teams. His love of film did start early on though, which he credits to films such as "American History X," "Primal Fear," "Varsity Blues," and "Taxi Driver" and he moved to Los Angeles after high school graduation to become an actor.

By the age of nineteen, Murray landed his first guest starring roles on "Diagnosis Murder," "Murphy's Dozen," and MTV's "Undressed," and soon-after came "Gilmore Girls" and "Dawson's Creek," where he played Alexis Bledel's overconfident classmate and Katie Holmes' and Michelle Williams' love interests, respectively. Next, Murray landed the starring role on the long-running WB/CW soap, "One Tree Hill," where he played Lucas Scott, the leading man and every fan girl's crush. Murray returned to "One Tree Hill" for its final season, a thank you to his loyal and dedicated fans. As an homage to his fans, Chad recently joined Rachael Leigh Cook in a Funny or Die parody on nineties teen films, entitled First Kiss.

On the big screen, recent roles of Chad's include the Octavia Spencer/Forest Whitaker produced, critically acclaimed film, "Fruitvale Station," Lionsgate's "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia," the comedy "Cavemen" (Camilla Belle, Skylar Astin,) and Tyler Perry's "A Madea Christmas," expanding his repertoire of roles from intense scenes as a police officer and loving father to comedic roles as a playboy and redneck.

Earlier in his career, Murray also starred as the lead in Joel Silver's remake of "House of Wax" opposite Elisha Cuthbert and as Prince Charming in Warner Brothers' "A Cinderella Story" (opposite Hilary Duff). Other credits include Disney's critically acclaimed remake of "Freaky Friday" (opposite Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan), the title role in the TNT movie, "The Lone Ranger", and the socially important indie film, "Renee" (Kat Dennings, Rupert Friend). He also could be seen in an arc on the TNT series "Southland," opposite Ben McKenzie, and as Thatcher, the HIV-positive character, in the short film "The Carrier," (Rita Wilson, Anna Paquin).

In Fall 2011, Murray broke new ground in his career, by writing and releasing, Everlast, his first graphic novel. Everlast is a passion project of his that tells the story of the tragic hero, Derek Everlast, as he follows his journey to save the world before the 'End of Days.' With a successful eight-city book tour, Murray quickly sold out of the first print of Everlast and is in the process of writing two follow-up novels, as well as an unrelated romantic prose story entitled American Drifter.

When Chad isn't working, he is active in charities for children and teens, including Buffalo's own Hunter's Hope Foundation, Falling Whistles, andthe Elizabeth Pediatric Aids Foundation. He is also a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.
