Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when host Scott McCausey chats with actor Burgess Jenkins about faith based movies that can make a difference in people’s lives.
Born in Winston-Salem NC, Burgess studied Psychology through graduate school which he says “opened up a world of possibilities in his characters”. It was during this time he signed with a local talent agency and a passion for acting was born. Though he found some early success, a turning point for Burgess was enrolling in the famed Playhouse West in Los Angeles where he studied for 4 years under Bob Carnegie and Oscar nominee Jeff Goldblum. Armed with a love for “Method” acting, he quickly began landing small roles and supporting parts, but in the summer of 2000 Burgess landed the coveted role of Ray Budds in the Blockbuster Remember The Titans opposite two time Academy award winner Denzel Washington. In addition, he played Hilary Swank’s husband David Winter in The Reaping; recurred as Bobby Irons throughout season 6 on the hit WB series One Tree Hill and starred opposite Hugo Weaving in The Key Man.
Currently Burgess is recurring on ABC’s smash hit Nashville. His latest movie Hero, is a direct to video film that releases in Walmart soon.
