About Jack: (From NBC.com) Many viewers know Jack Wagner from his television roles as Dr. Peter Burns in "Melrose Place" and as Frisco Jones on "General Hospital," but his multi-dimensional career includes his recent star turn on Broadway in the musical "Jekyll and Hyde," a mid-1980s number-one single "All I Need" -- and a trophy as a national college golf champion.
Now Wagner returns to prime time in NBC's new serial drama "Titans" as the estranged younger brother of business tycoon Richard Williams (fellow series star Perry King), who heads the European division of Williams Global Enterprises. Wagner portrays Jack Williams, who returns to Beverly Hills when he hears of his older brother's wedding to a younger woman (series star Yasmine Bleeth).
Wagner was born and raised in Washington, Missouri, where he discovered a love for musical theater while in high school. Later, at the University of Arizona, he starred in numerous stage productions but also developed a passion for golf, en route to becoming a national champion.
In 1982, Wagner graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree in drama and relocated to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. He first found work in commercials and then landed a breakout lead role as Frisco Jones on "General Hospital." Working ever since, Wagner has starred in such television movies as "Nowhere to Land" and "Artificial Lies." He also directed an episode of "Melrose Place" where he played Dr. Burns from 1994-99.
Recently, Wagner made his Broadway debut in "Jekyll and Hyde" and performed in national productions of the musicals "West Side Story" and "Grease." He also starred in the musical comedy "They're Playing Our Song" at the Long Beach Civic Light Opera.
On the music front, Wagner's gold album "All I Need" also produced a second chart-climbing single in 1985, "Lady of My Heart." The next year, he released his second album, "Lighting Up the Night," which included the Top-40 single "Love Can Take Us All the Way." His other albums include "Alone in the Crowd" and "Don't Give Up Your Day Job," featuring the Top-40 hit, "Weatherman Says."
Wagner resides in Los Angeles where he continues performing, composing, recording and playing golf (he's recently won several tournaments on the Celebrity Players Tour). He's also a four-time club champion at the Bel Air Country Club in Los Angeles.
