Who is Jack Kesy?
Jack Kesey was born in New York City, USA on 27 August 1986 under the zodiac sign of Virgo; his parents are both Polish, and he belongs to Caucasian ethnicity. He is best known for his acting career, especially for appearance in the movie about superheroes called “Deadpool 2”.
Early life and education
There is not much known about Jack’s background. He spent his early years in New York, but he also spent a good part of his childhood in Germany and Italy. He attended and graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama based in London, then served in the US Marine Corps for a period of time.
Jack didn’t start his career on the screen – rather on theatre stage. After appearing in a couple of shows, he got his first role in a short video called “Emina” in 2009, about a young Bosnian woman who confronts her wartime rapist.
He has had roles in 18 movies but only a couple of them were significant for his career. One is “Baywatch” shot in 2017, in which Jack acted alongside Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the comedy crime movie about two lifeguards who uncover a criminal plot which threatens to ruin their lives on the coast. Later that year, his next noticeable appearance was in the movie called “Juggernaut”, co-starring with Amanda Crew in this crime drama movie about a small town outlaw (Kesy as Saxon), who believes that his mother’s death wasn’t a suicide, and tries his best to find out who is responsible for her death.
Even though he is best known for his role in “Deadpool 2” shot in 2018, he played just a small role in this movie, as bad guy Black Tom in the story which follows mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (Deadpool), who makes a group of mutants in order to protect a kid who also has supernatural powers from a time-travelling cyborg called Cable. It cost $100 million to produce, but has domestically grossed of $318 million at the box office.
He has appeared in four TV series, having main roles in two of them. His first lead role was as vampire Bolivar in “The Strain” shot between 2014 and 2017; it is a thriller about an ancient and evil strain of vampirism attacking through New York City. His second lead role was in “Claws” which started airing in 2017, and is a drama comedy about the lives and crimes of five women who work in one of the Florida’s nail salons – Jack is currently shooting for the third season.
He also appeared in “Ray Donovan” in 2016 and “The Alienist” in 2018, but just for one episode in each.
Trouble with the police
In 2015, Jack was arrested for possession of cocaine, caught while placing an order for it at the Pianos bar. He had to go to court, and was eventually charged with drug possession offense, but made no admittance, and posted $10,000 to be released on bail.
He doesn’t talk about his personal life at all, not even about his parents or his siblings.
We do know that he is not dating anyone at the moment, has never married and doesn’t have any kids. He is completely dedicated to his acting career.
Gay or not?
Rumors about Jack being gay started because he was never seen in public with a woman. Also, during an interview, Jack said how ‘a lot of big actors played gay roles before they were famous. I want to do a Gay role too.’ However, he’s never been seen with a man, and he claims to be straight.

The actor does not have Twitter or Instagram accounts, however, a support account of his fans on Instagram has more than 200 posts and nearly 13,000 followers. There is also a fan page on Facebook, but with only about 1,200 followers.
His favorite actor is Al Pacino and one of the movies which he loves the most is “Scent of a Woman” – Al Pacino played the lead role. Kesy says how while he was watching this movie, while he was watching Al Pacino’s character, he thought how he might be as good as him, and decided to start attending acting school.
