Though his striking good looks may have made Jonathan Bennett an object of affection for the 'plastics' in Mean Girls, his talent and commitment are what have led him to become one of the most sought-after young actors in Hollywood. Bennett's first foray into feature films was in Paramount's smash hit Mean Girls from producer Lorne Michaels and writer Tina Fey, in which he starred opposite Lindsay Lohan. In the romantic comedy Lovewrecked for the Weinstein Co., Bennett transitioned into the love interest of Amanda Bynes. He has since starred as Bo Duke in Warner Bros. prequel to The Dukes of Hazard, in the comedy romp Bachelor Party Vegas, in Fox's sequel to the hit comedy Cheaper by the Dozen as Steve Martin's antagonistic son-in-law, and as the title role in National Lampoon's Van Wilder: Freshman Year.
More recently, Bennett executive produced and starred in the film Authors Anonymous opposite Kaley Cuoco. He continues to wear his producing hat, as well as carry a supporting role, in the feature Pawn with Ray Liotta and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker. More recently, Bennett wrapped the dramatic thriller Submerged, the comedy Do Over, the crime thriller Paid in Full, and the Lifetime telefilm Romantically Speaking opposite Glee star Heather Morris. Originally from Ohio, Bennett currently resides in Los Angeles where he continues to hone his craft.
