Source of Wealth:Actor
After bit parts in the John Woo martial arts extravaganza Face/Off (1997) and guest-starring appearances on the weekly series Ally McBeal and The Drew Carey Show, Jamie Denton (also billed under his formal prename, James Denton) achieved national recognition for his contribution to the darkly comic prime-time soap opera Desperate Housewives.In that program, Denton played Mike Delfino, the very eligible bachelor plumber, tossed like a volleyball in between sexy suburbanites Edie Britt (Nicollette Sheridan) and Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher).
After several films and television series,Denton held out for a bigger break, and that arrived in the form of his Housewives role. Shortly after the series premiered in October 2004, it rocketed up to become one of the most popular and scintillating new dramas on television.
The eldest child of a Nashville, TN, dentist, Denton attended Goodlettsville High School and junior college prior to enrolling in the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. At that institution, he majored in television and journalism, and graduated with honors, a degree in advertising.
Denton was born on January 20, 1963 in Nashville, Tennessee, United States.Denton has been married twice. He and his first wife, actress Jenna Lyn Ward, were married from 1997 to 2000. He married for the second time on December 16, 2002, to Erin O'Brien. He and Erin have two children: a son named Sheppard (b. March 2003) and a daughter, Malin O’Brien (b. March 22, 2005).
