He wanted to be an actor since the age of eight, but his first foray into taking a major stab was in high school drama club. He saw it as the start of something. He wanted to make drama his absolute major. The coach urged Jeremy to keep right on reaching. He eventually found his way to the professional theater and was granted such plums as Algernonin in "The Importance of Being Earnest," as well as in several one-act plays. Although as a day job, Jeremy modeled professionally before doing acting steadily. And while modeling was paying the bills, he continued to chase acting around. He auditioned mostly for the theater. He also performed La Jolla Playhouse in a festival of plays that took a look at racial bigotry, and in "Jason's Mask" at the Old Globe in San Diego, as part of the Young Playwrights Festival. He portrayed the role of an alpha-jock who's quite arrogant and something of a prankster. This is a role he would go to on to play a lot throughout his career.Edit
He finally had his first major TV guest spot on the basketball-based series "Hang Time." One of his bigger success was being a guest presenter on the local KPBS TV show "Kickin' It" in his hometown as a guest presenter for which he garnered a regional Emmy Award nomination.
But the part that gave him that big break in the public eye was replacing fellow pretty-boy actor Ryan Bittle in the plum role of Todd Wilkins, longtime boyfriend to Elizabeth Wakefield in the TV series adaptation of "Sweet Valley High (TV series)." Jeremy found himself profiled heavily in magazines, on covers from the book-series as well as other SVH-based propaganda.
After the "Sweet Valley High" was cancelled due to incredibly low ratings (the show had strayed away from the book series and just got more and more campy), he grabbed guest-sints on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series)", "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher", "CSI: Miami," "Ally McBeal" and "Sabrina the Teenage Witch (TV series)".
He managed another regular steady-spot as Clay Logan on the short-lived civil-war period soap "Legacy (TV series)" as one Clay Hogan. After that ended, he appeared on the WB's "Jack & Jill (TV series)."
Another role he took on when he was working regularly was the TV movie "Lies and The Women We Tell Them To" along with Kyle Chandler, Martine McCutcheon, Ed Helms.
His later work on the stage includes portraying Romeo in an Off-Broadway production called "Two Houses", a stage adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. He finally made his first stint as a director in another Off-Broadway production called "An Infinite Ache" which was shown last Sept. 25-through-28, 2003.
After a nearly seven-year absence, he returned to the screen in the short Italian-made independent film "The Abandoned Circus".
