Chris O'Donnell Career

O'Donnell started his career by appearing in numerous commercials as a teenager, including commercials for Cap'n Crunch cereal and Fruit Roll-Ups snacks, as well as a McDonald's fast food commercial in which he served NBA great Michael Jordan. An early television series role was an appearance on the TV series Jack and Mike in 1986. In the early 1990s, he appeared in several films including Men Don't Leave (1990), starring Jessica Lange; Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), reuniting him with Kathy Bates with whom he appeared with in Men Don't Leave; School Ties (1992); and Scent of a Woman (1992) with Al Pacino; O'Donnell would receive two nominations: one for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor-Motion Picture (which was won by Gene Hackman for Unforgiven), and one for a Chicago Film Critics Association Award for Most Promising Actor (which he won). He was also named one of the 12 Promising New Actors of 1992 in John Willis's Screen World, Vol. 44.

After appearing in the film Blue Sky (1994), reuniting him with Jessica Lange from Men Don't Leave, he starred in Circle of Friends (1995) with Minnie Driver and Mad Love (1995) with Drew Barrymore. O'Donnell then went on to play the character of Dick Grayson/Robin in Batman Forever, in which Barrymore also made an appearance. He reportedly was part of a field of candidates for the role of Robin that included Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Ewan McGregor, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Toby Stephens, and Scott Speedman. Casting directors narrowed their choices to O'Donnell and DiCaprio with O'Donnell eventually winning the role. O'Donnell was said to be one of the considerations of 20th Century Fox studios to play the lead role of Jack Dawson in Titanic (1997), but that role was ultimately won by DiCaprio.

O'Donnell followed with a starring role in 1996's The Chamber, based on the John Grisham novel. He subsequently reprised his role as Robin in 1997's Batman & Robin. Although it was a box-office success, the movie was critically panned and O'Donnell attested he believed it didn't turn out well.

O'Donnell did not appear in another movie for two years. He was one of the producers choice for the role of James Darrell Edwards III/Agent J in Men in Black (1997), but after turning it down because he thought the character would be too similar to his role in Batman Forever, the role went to Will Smith. The subsuquent films Cookie's Fortune (1999) and The Bachelor (1999) were moderately successful, while Vertical Limit (2000) was a box office hit.

Following a four-year hiatus, O'Donnell returned in 2004 with the widely praised Kinsey. He also appeared in the 2004 episode of Two and a Half Men entitled "An Old Flame With A New Wick." O'Donnell took a lead role in the Fox Network television series Head Cases in 2005. The show was the first of the fall 2005 season to be canceled, and only two episodes were aired. He was subsequently cast as veterinarian Finn Dandridge on the ABC medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

O'Donnell featured prominently in the TNT miniseries The Company as CIA case officer Jack McAuliffe, a character who progressed from spoonfed Yale elitist to jaded, post-Cold War cynic. In 2008 he appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl as the titular character's father Jack Kittredge, and in Max Payne as Jason Colvin.

Since 2009, O'Donnell has starred in NCIS: Los Angeles, a spinoff of NCIS, as G. Callen, an NCIS Special Agent in charge of the Office of Special Projects Team stationed in Los Angeles. CBS describes Callen as "a chameleon who transforms himself into whomever he needs to be to infiltrate the criminal underworld."

In 2010, O'Donnell appeared in the sequel to the 2001 movie Cats & Dogs, The Revenge of Kitty Galore.


Lecturers make bid to oust universities union boss over 'ineffective' strikes after years of disruptive walkouts for students, October 2, 2023
Lecturers at a string of the UK's leading institutions have called for a vote of no confidence in the Universities and College Union (UCU) boss Jo Grady over the 'ineffective' strikes she led. Lecturers from Durham, Glasgow , Keele and Leeds Beckett universities have backed motions for 39-year-old Miss Grady - who became UCU leader in 2019 - to resign. Last month (SEPT) the UCU branch at Durham University also called for the union to cover the wages of academics whose pay had been cut off. In a vote at York St John University, lecturers branded the UCU leadership 'confusing, ineffective and undemocratic' 'through industrial action in 2023'.

TV veteran George Rossi amassed a multi-million pound property empire before he died, April 9, 2023
EXCLUSIVE: George (left), 60, who played Detective Constable Duncan Lennox for 20 years in the hit series (inset), died from pancreatic cancer in January 2022. Although the £8,059,966.67 'gross value' of his estate captured the headlines, he actually left only £3,660,996.36 after his debts and bills were subtracted, some of that possibly in the form of outstanding buy-to-let mortgages. The fortune he accrued was left to his widow Catrin who said at the time of his death: 'George was a wonderful person.' Their two children also benefited. Now a picture has emerged of how he grew the small property empire that steadily increased in value by renting properties out and reinvesting the money in more bricks and mortar - supported by regular payments for his acting work which appeared globally.
