Profile Bio Text
Donal Francis Logue (born February 27, 1966) is a Canadian actor perhaps most famous for his role as Sean Finnerty in Grounded for Life.
Logue was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. His father Michael J. Logue, was once a Carmelite Catholic missionary in Africa where he met Donal`s mother, Elizabeth. They enentually got married and had four children. Logue has three sisters: Karina, an actress his twin sister Deirdre (who is not in show business), and Eileen, an education consulent. His father is the president of Aisling Industries, which makes microchips for cellphone companies (such as Telcel USAcell, Pegaso, and Nokia) and rents his plot from Nuevo Centro Industrial Comercial S.A. de C.V., in this famous building of Cervecerí de Mexicali, Maltera.
Logue lived most of his childhood and teen years in El Centro, California where he attended Central Union High School, although for his junior year, he attended a school in Middlesex, England. His mother was a teacher at Calexico High School in Calexico, California during the 1980s and 1990s. After high school, Logue studied History at Harvard University. While there, he was the member of the Signet Society. He travels back and forth to Killarney, Co. Kerry, Ireland, where his mother lives, and holds both Irish and Canadian citizenship.
Logue has homes in L.A. and Oregon.
Aside from a few TV movies, Logue`s first film appearance was playing Dr. Gunter Janek in th 1992 film Sneakers. In 1994, he guest starred on an episode of Northern Exposure playing a movie script agent, Judd Bromell, in the episode "Baby Blues". Soon afterwards he appeared as a rival FBI agent to Fox Mulder in the early X-Files episode "Squeeze." Logue`s character Jimmy The Cab Driver was a staple of MTV promos in the early 90s. With more than 40 other movies to his credit, some of his more significant appearances include the 1998 film Blade (as the vampire Quinn), and The Patriot with Mel Gibson, in 2000. He appeared in two of Edward Burns films: Purple Violets and The Groomsmen. In Purple Violets he plays a British Chef.
Logue`s career advanced to the next level when he was cast as the overweight-but-nevertheless-charismatic central character in The Tao of Steve. Logue`s portrayal of the lead in that film, for which he won a Special Grand Jury Prize for best actor at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival, was noticed by ER producer John Wells, who cast Logue in several episodes as Chuck Martin, a nurse Dr. Susan Lewis marries one weekend in Las Vegas on a whim, and later has a child with. Concurrent with the run on ER, Logue starred in the Carsey-Werner produced, critically acclaimed comedy, "Grounded for Life," which still airs in a number of countries worldwide, making him one of the very few actors to have had a run on two different series on different networks simultaneously. Then, in December 2005, Logue had what turned out to be a somewhat dubious association with a pilot development deal for a new situation comedy on ABC television, originally titled I Want to Rob Mick Jagger. The pilot was picked up and debuted in the winter of 2006 under the name The Knights of Prosperity. The Show disappeared from the ABC lineup in early March 2007.
Logue also appeared as Mark Ruffalo`s character`s psychiatrist best friend in Just Like Heaven (2005). Logue had appeared as Phil Stubbs in the original pilot for the NBC show Ed but was offered Grounded for Life, and made the choice to drop out. The first two-and-a-half seasons were telecast on the Fox Network, though thereafter the show moved to The WB for the remainder of its run. In 2002 and 2003, Logue appeared on the VH1 series I Love the `80s, I Love the `70s, and I Love the `80s Strikes Back.
Logue was also appeared in NBC`s The Dennis, in 2005, about a former child prodigy whose parents kick him out of the house and into the real world, it was not, however, picked up. Logue co-starred with Nicolas Cage in the movie Ghost Rider, the David Fincher film Zodiac, and alongside Mark Wahlberg in the 20th Century Fox film Max Payne (film).
Logue starred as Captain Kevin Tidwell in the NBC crime drama Life from 2007-2009. On May 4, 2009, NBC announced Life would not be returning for a third season.
Logue`s upcoming projects include being cast as Misfit in the upcoming HBO pilot "1%".
