Basic information

This popular American actor was born on April 16th in 1965 and his childhood was complete like a fairy tale. He was born in the city of dreams and artists in New York City, New York. He is the son of the famous playwright, songwriter, actress, and singer ‘Gretchen Kiger’. His father is an actor and singer who was a minister. So basically Jon was from a popular and renowned family. His paternal grandfather was the Rev. Donald W. Cryer and he was a popular Methodist Minister.

When he was just twelve years old he discovered that he is fond of something that he already is aware of. Jon adopted this legacy from his family but decided to follow his own dreams. No doubt, he did well to when he entered into this file. He used every opportunity quite well and received something huge into his life.  But he tells in an interview that, when he had shared this with his mother that he is aspiring to become an actor. They all laughed at home and thought he is just a kid and kept this as a backup plan.

So his mother joked with him by saying ‘plumbing is a pretty good career’. Then afterward he was sent to attend the Performing Arts Training center for many summers as a teenager and those training centers squeezed out an artist inside him. He was also a classmate of a screenwriter and film director Boaz Yakin. There he discovered a completely new thing as an artist and as a person. When he was attending his classes at college and Jon suddenly decides to skip the college (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London) his mother got shocked and disappointed. It was a summer short course in Shakespeare for his growth but he did not complete it.
