James Badge Dale
Dale recently wrapped production on Robert Redford's historical drama The Conspirator, starring Robin Wright, James McAvoy, Justin Long, and Evan Rachel Wood. The film takes place in the wake of Abraham Lincoln's assassination as seven men and one woman are arrested and charged with conspiring to kill the president, vice president, and secretary of state.
The son of the late Broadway, film and television star Anita Morris and two-time Tony Award–winning director/choreographer Grover Dale, Dale grew up in the backstage world. He followed his parents into the arts, making his off-Broadway debut in 2003 with the Flea Theatre Company's Getting Into Heaven. Since then, he has returned to the stage to work with the New Group and New World Stages.
Dale's most notable film role to date has been as Barrigan in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning The Departed. Other films Dale has appeared in include Lord of the Flies, the film festival darling Cross Bronx, and Polish Bar.
On television, Dale appeared as Chase Edmunds, Kiefer Sutherland's younger partner in the hit series 24. He has also originated memorable roles in both Rescue Me and The Black Donnellys.
