A London-born actor who managed to begin landing sizable roles in Hollywood films just a few short years after his screen career began, Oliver Jackson-Cohen first appeared on television in 2007 with a guest spot on "The Time of Your Life," an English television series about a coma victim. A year later, Jackson-Cohen had a recurring role on the BBC historical drama "Lark Rise to Candleford." By 2010, he had begun his film career, acting in the romantic comedy "Going the Distance" and the action thriller "Faster." In the former movie, the young actor portrayed a dashing bartender who threatened to halt the burgeoning romance developing between leads Justin Long and Drew Barrymore. The latter film found Jackson-Cohen trading bullets with stars Dwayne Johnson and Billy Bob Thorton. The following year, Jackson-Cohen starred in the comedy web series "Will & Kate: Before Happily Ever After," which satirized the affairs of the royal family. Jackson-Cohen also continued adding to his string of supporting parts in major Hollywood films, acting in "What's Your Number?," another romantic comedy. The film starred actress Anna Faris as a luckless woman attempting to reconnect with her ex-lovers, with Jackson-Cohen playing one of the main character's former beaus.
