Jason George as Adam
While attending graduate school in Philadelphia, Jason George went to an open call at a local mall for Aaron Spelling’s daytime drama, "Sunset Beach."

Since then, George has been a series regular on multiple hit television shows such as the UPN half-hour comedy "Eve," where he starred opposite the famous musician in her self-titled show. He also starred in The WB series "Off Centre" as a rap star and in the UPN drama "Platinum." George was a series regular on ABC’s "What About Brian" and "Eli Stone," as well as a recurring guest star on "Eastwick" before landing a series regular role on "Off the Map," both on ABC. Currently, he continues his recurring guest star role on ABC’s "Grey’s Anatomy" and can be seen starring in the new summer series "Mistresses," also on ABC.
Born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia, George majored in rhetoric and communication studies at the University of Virginia and later honed his craft earning an M.F.A. from Temple University’s theater department. Currently residing in Los Angeles, he serves on the Board of Directors for Temple University’s School of Communication and Theater. Additionally, George has served on the national boards of both SAG and AFTRA and is elated to now serve on the board of the combined performers union, SAG-AFTRA.
