Marc John Jefferies

Born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx, Jefferies had his first on-camera job at just three-weeks of age in an American Express commercial for which his father was the director of photography. After his early television debut, Jefferies worked as a fit model for various designers, appeared in numerous commercials and, at age 4, had his big break on the big screen in the film Losing Isaiah, in which he portrayed the young child whom Halle Berry and Jessica Lange both claim as their son.

After receiving rave reviews for his performance in Losing Isaiah, Jefferies went on to earn guest-starring and recurring roles in Homicide: Life on the Street, Trinity, NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Third Watch, along with Cosby, Guiding Light, New York Undercover, The Practice, and Family Law. Along with appearing on The Tracy Morgan Show, Jefferies will also soon be heard in Bill Cosby's animated children's series Fatherhood.

Jefferies' feature-film career continues to flourish as well. He recently completed production on the movie The Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy, which is due out this fall. He is currently featured in Finding Nemo and Charles Angels: Full Throttle, and recently appeared in Brown Sugar, with Taye Diggs and Mos Def and Stuart Little 2, with Michael J. Fox and Geena Davis.

In addition to his acting career, Jefferies enjoys doing impersonations and stand-up comedy, most recently becoming the youngest performer to appear at Hollywood's The Laugh Factory. He is also the spokesperson for the internet service People PC.

When not working in Los Angeles, Jefferies resides with his family in New York City, where his mother is a teacher. He is a proud big brother to his younger brother and sister, and enjoys traveling with his family and collecting cars.
