John R Colley here. I am an actor tirelessly in pursuit of deepening my work.
Given my commitment, I trained at a number of places in New York. I graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Acting, attended the acting school HB Studio, and had the pleasure of mentoring with Jack Doulin, Juilliard teacher and casting director of off-Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop. Now in Los Angeles, I study and coach with Michael Woolson.
Some of my recent television credits include Criminal Minds on CBS and Castle on ABC, in which I played a grad student in theoretical physics. On stage in New York, I brought to life Louis in Angels in America, and the Amanuensis in the Abe Burrows NYU Mainstage The Illusion. I am the smart guy: the student or young lawyer, who’s maybe a little neurotic. And I feel equally comfortable in a multi-cam world such as The Big Bang Theory and the grounded realm of The Newsroom.
I am most inspired by complex, intelligent characters with a strong sense of vulnerability.
Lastly, I must mention my passion for voiceover. You can hear me in a number of commercials including Boost Mobile. I also looped the upcoming feature Behaving Badly, starring Mary Louise-Parker and Elizabeth Shue, and Alvin and the Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked.
I’m currently represented theatrically by The Polygon Group, Inc., for voice with Solid Talent, and management with Serendipity Entertainment.
