Cheyenne Jackson

Cheyenne Jackson (born July 12, 1975) is an American actor and singer, with a successful film and Broadway career. He's most widely known for his starring role in the film United 93 and his singing performance from Xanadu at the 2008 Tony Awards.

Jackson made his Broadway debut understudying both male leads in the Tony Award-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. He later served as the standby for the character of Radames in Aida, then originated the role of Matthew in the off-Broadway production of Altar Boyz. In 2005, he originated his first Broadway leading role in the musical tribute to Elvis Presley, All Shook Up. His performance as Chad earned him much critical praise, the Theatre World Award, as well as nominations from the Drama League and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Lead Actor.

In June 2007, less than a week before the scheduled opening night, Jackson assumed the lead role of Sonny on Broadway in Xanadu. He replaced actor James Carpinello who had been injured during rehearsal. His performance as Sonny would go on to earn him nominations from the Drama League and Drama Desk for Outstanding Lead Actor. Xanadu had several Tony Award nominations including "Best musical" for which Jackson and the cast performed on the 62nd Tony Awards show.

In 2008, Cheyenne re-teamed with Jane Krakowski and Sean Hayes (Will & Grace) to star in New York City Center's Production of Damn Yankees. Cheyenne's current Broadway show is Finian's Rainbow.
