Donald Joseph "D.J." Cotrona (born May 23,1980) is an American actor, known for his role in the film G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013).
He was studying to be a lawyer at Northeastern University in Boston; however, after doing a summer internship at a law firm, he realized he did not like working with lawyers. In his sophomore year, he switched to acting; during his spring break, he went to visit a friend in Los Angeles and never returned to college.
After a few guest starring roles Cotrona was being considered for the role of Ryan Atwood on the television series The O.C. but that role went to Benjamin McKenzie. Shortly thereafter Cotrona was cast as the male lead in another of Fox's new dramas of 2003, the Jerry Bruckheimer produced Skin.
Cotrona appeared in the 2005 horror film Venom, which was directed by Jim Gillespie. He also starred in the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival film Love is the Drug.
In 2005 Cotrona again landed a lead role in a TV series, playing Sean Mathers, a flower shop worker with a dark past who is part of a group of lottery winners, in the NBC series Windfall. The series would end up being shown in the summer of 2006 rather than as a mid-season replacement for the 2005-06 TV season.
Cotrona was cast in the role of Superman for Warner Bros.' planned film Justice League: Mortal; however, after issues resulting from the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike and other production concerns, the film remains unmade.
In 2010, Cotrona appeared in the film Dear John. In February he was cast as Detective John Stone in the ABC pilot 187 Detroit, which also stars Michael Imperioli, Shaun Majumder, and Erin Cummings among others. When ABC ordered the series it was renamed Detroit 1-8-7. His character was killed in "Stone Cold", the sixteenth episode of the series.
Cotrona played Flint, one of the leading roles, in the sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013).
