Early life

Joseph Dunnigan III, a Los Angeles native, was born Flanigan III. He has said that his mother, Nancy, died shortly after being born, and that his surname was changed to Flanigan after he was adopted by his stepfather, business executive John Flanigan. His family migrated to a small ranch near Reno, Nevada, when he was six years old.

Flanigan attended boarding school in Ojai, California, where he appeared in the school production of A Streetcar Named Desire from the age of 14. He earned a history degree at the University of Colorado, where he appeared in the play Coriolanus. On the advice of a friend, he took acting classes to beat his shyness but did not intend to pursue a career in acting. Flanigan spent a year at Sorbonne in Paris, where he learned French.

Personal life

In 1996, Flanigan married Katherine Kousi, an actress and painter. They have three sons. It was reported in early 2014 that they had broken up.

In the Waterkeepers' Alliance downhill skiing competition in Lake Louise in January 2006, Flanigan received two awards, an event where fellow Stargate lead Richard Dean Anderson attended as well. He now lives in Malibu, California. In the Woolsey Fire on November 10, 2018, the Malibu home he was renting from a local family was destroyed.
