Donal Francis Logue (born February 27, 1966) is a Canadianmarker actor perhaps most famous for his role as Sean Finnerty in Grounded for Life.

Early life

Logue was born in Ottawamarker, Ontariomarker, Canadamarker. His father, Michael J. Logue, was once a Carmelite Catholic missionary in Africa where he met Donal's mother, Elizabeth, where they eventually got married and had four children. He has three sisters: Karina, an actress, his twin sister Deirdre (who is not in show business), and Eileen, an education consultant. 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 the famous building of Cervecería de Mexicali, Maltera.

Logue lived most of his childhood and teen years in El Centro, Californiamarker where he attended Central Union High School, although for his junior year, he attended St Ignatius' Collegemarker, Enfield, Middlesexmarker, Englandmarker. His mother was a teacher at Calexico High School in Calexico, Californiamarker during the 1980s and 1990s. After high school, Logue studied History at Harvard Universitymarker. While there, he was a member of the Signet Society. He travels back and forth to Killarneymarker, Co.marker Kerrymarker, Irelandmarker, where his mother lives, and holds both Irishmarker and Canadian citizenship.

Logue has homes in L.A.marker and Oregonmarker.

Career

Aside from a few TV movies, Logue's first film appearance was playing Dr. Gunter Janek in the 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 FBImarker 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 ofEdward 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 Vegasmarker 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 .

Logue stars as Captain Kevin Tidwell in the NBC crime drama Life from 2007-2009.

Logue's upcoming projects include being cast as Misfit in the upcoming HBO pilot "1%".
