John Sheppard



Born in Los Angeles, Joe Flanigan moved with his family to a small ranch on the outskirts of Reno, Nevada when he was six-years-old. He attended boarding school in Ojai, California, and later received a degree in history from the University of Colorado, where he was a world-class skier. Following a year abroad in Paris, Flanigan wrote for various national print publications and worked on Capitol Hill. After moving to New York to study acting, he joined The Neighborhood Playhouse and it wasn’t long before his acting career was launched in earnest.

Moving to Los Angeles in 1994, Flanigan’s television debut was an auspicious one, starring opposite Jacqueline Smith in the NBC miniseries Family Album. He was a series regular on Sisters and First Monday, and has guest starred on Women's Murder Club, CSI: Miami, Birds of Prey, Tru Calling and Judging Amy, as well as Murphy Brown, in which he was cast as Murphy’s love interest, Scott. Flanigan made regular appearances on the series Profiler, Providence, Cupid and Dawson’s Creek, and also had leading roles in a number of television pilots, including The Precinct, Sherman’s March, The Force, Man-Made, Club Paradise and 111 Gramercy Park. He co-starred in the made-for-television movies Edna Buchanon, Tell Me No Secrets and the USA original movie Thoughtcrimes, a crime drama directed by Breck Eisner.

Among his feature film credits is Gary Marshall’s romantic comedy The Other Sister, starring Diane Keaton and Juliette Lewis. Flanigan also starred in Silent Men and Farewell to Harry, and co-starred in A Reason to Believe and The First to Go.

A competitive skier for many years, Flanigan still enjoys outdoor sports tremendously, and counts among his pastimes rock climbing, mountain biking and surfing. He resides near a great surfing spot in Malibu, California, with his wife and three young sons.
