Haysha Deitsch (April 7, 1981) is an American actor best known for rising to prominence in his role of Al in 'The Return of Jezebel James'.

Born on April 7, 1981, Des Moines, Iowa, he left his home town in his early 20s and moved to L.A. There he was partly successful in launching his career. His passion for acting has always been a huge part of his life, and after finishing high school he was determined about studying acting and eventually pursuing his lifelong dream. Once he obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Iowa University, department of Theater Arts, Deitsch began his journey of making it to the top of Hollywood.


In his early career days, he mainly did stage work and appeared in a number of acclaimed productions. His first screen role came in 2002 when he was cast as Alex in the TV Series 'Leap of Faith'. During the filming of the series, Haysha Deitsch got his second onscreen offer, only this time it was a short series called 'Computerman' where he played the role of Michael. Even though he was enjoying great success on Television and theater, still Haysha was committed to conquering all three spheres, and somehow he still wasn't getting any film roles. Things changed a bit in the period between 2005 and 2007, when he auditioned for the main role in 'Kid Fitness', which was a TV show for minors. There his passion for the silver screen wore down a bit, so he got another role on the small screen - in the series 'The Return of Jezebel James'.


Until this day, the series 'Friend Me' where he played the character of Steve, remains his biggest regret, as the initial positive reviews from both viewers and critics weren't enough to get the series of the ground, to air it on CBS. Currently he is focused on a few television projects and theater works, which should be premiered by the end of the year.


  • The Fifties (2015)
  • Gastown (2015)
  • Friend Me (2012)
  • The Return of Jezebel James (2008)
  • Kid Fitness (2005-2007)
  • Computerman (2003)
  • Leap of Faith (2002)

  • What Could Have Been: In 2012, CBS started shooting 'Friend Me', a comedy TV series about the real-life website Groupon.
  • Old Shame: He's often seen as a 'childish' TV actor, because of his involvement in 'Kid Fitness'.
