Jack O'Connell (born 1 August 1990 in Alvaston, England) is an English actor. He's perhaps best known for playing James Cook on Skins during its second generation, a role he returned to for the final series in 2013. He also starred in Angelina Jolie's directorial effort Unbroken. He is not the same person as the identically-named Magic Realist crime novelist.

Selected filmography:

He provides examples of:

  • Former Teen Rebel: Jack used to have a reputation as a "bad boy" during his younger years, but he cited his experience working with Angelina Jolie on Unbroken as a major motivator to clean up his act.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He was often shirtless on Skins, and he doesn't seem very shy about showing off his body.
