Matthew Chandler Fox (born July 14, 1966) is an American actor. He is known for his roles as Charlie Salinger on Party of Five and Jack Shephard on the supernatural drama television series Lost. --- Fox was born in Abington, Pennsylvania, the son of Loretta B. (née Eagono) and Francis G. Fox. One of his paternal great-great-great-grandfathers was Union General George Meade. His father was from a "very blue-blood" Pennsylvania family of mostly English descent, while his mother was of half Italian and half British Isles ancestry. When Fox was a year old, he moved to Wyoming with his parents and siblings, Francis, Jr. (b. 1961) and Bayard (b. 1969). They settled in Crowheart (population 163 in the last census), on the Wind River Indian Reservation. His mother was a teacher, and his father, who had been a consultant for an oil company, raised longhorn cattle and horses, and grew barley for Coors beer. When Fox was young, his parents worked as caretakers of the remote "Bitterroot Ranch" outside Dubois, Wyoming. Fox graduated from high school in Wyoming and attended Deerfield Academy for a post-graduate year. Following Deerfield, Fox attended Columbia University, where he majored in Economics and became a brother of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. Fox interviewed for a job to sell stocks at Prudential-Bache. At the age of 25, Fox made his debut on an episode of Wings. That same year, he also starred on a short-lived dramatic series, Freshman Dorm. Still not a familiar face on the small screen, he continued to be cast in supporting roles, including the role of Charlie in the CBS Schoolbreak Special series, If I Die Before I Wake before he made his big screen debut in My Boyfriend's Back (1993). In 1996, People Magazine named Fox one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World. From September 2004 until May 2010, Fox played the role of the dedicated yet troubled surgeon, Dr. Jack Shephard, on Lost. He initially auditioned for the role of James "Sawyer" Ford. However, co-creator J. J. Abrams thought he would be better for the role of Jack, a role originally slated to be for the pilot episode only. Fox was nominated for a Golden Globe, won the 2005 Satellite Award, and shared the 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, for his role in Lost. Fox has repeatedly stated that he is "done with television" after Lost. In 2011, he starred in the stage play In a Forest, Dark and Deep with Olivia Williams in London's West End. Fox appears in Alex Cross (2012), as Michael "The Butcher" Sullivan/"Picasso".  Fox developed an extremely muscular physique for the role and shed most of his body fat. --- Fox met his wife, Margherita Ronchi, at university and they married shortly after in 1992. They have two children, a daughter named Kyle and a son named Byron.
