Jason O'Mara stars in "Terra Nova" on FOX as Jim Shannon, who guides his family as part of a group of settlers who travel back in time to a colony built in prehistoric Earth. Previously, he starred as Sam Tyler on ABC's "Life on Mars."

On the big screen, O'Mara stars opposite Katherine Heigl and in the action-comedy "One for the Money."

Accomplished actor Jason O'Mara never planned on acting as a profession. Growing up in Ireland, he was an avid rugby player and insists that he "wasn't the theater type" until he suffered a sports injury and was sidelined for several weeks. While recovering, he tried out for the school play and won a part. The thrill of opening night sealed his fate. His former passion for sports transferred to acting, he applied to Trinity College Dublin, where he received his degree in drama.

O'Mara has appeared in several ABC's series, including as a regular on "In Justice," a two-part story arc on the hit drama "Grey's Anatomy," and the recurring character Stuart Maxson on "Men in Trees." O'Mara recently reprised his role as pyromaniac Bill Corelick on TNT's "The Closer," and has been a regular on "The Agency" for CBS. He made his U.S. television debut in the role of Lt. Thomas Meehan in the critically acclaimed HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers."

O'Mara has starred in many British TV dramas, including regular roles on the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA)-winning "Playing the Field," "Berkeley Square" and the hugely popular "Monarch of the Glen," all for BBC. His film credits include starring as Albert Wesker in the hit movie "Resident Evil: Extinction."

On the British stage, O'Mara played leading roles in several productions, including "Popcorn" (Apollo Theatre, West End), "The Jew of Malta" (Almeida Theatre) and "The School for Scandal," (Royal Shakespeare Company). He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the 2002 Irish Theatre Awards for his performance in "Bash," written and directed by Neil LaBute at the Gate Theatre in Dublin. O'Mara went on to appear in the multi award-winning production of Harold Pinter's "The Homecoming" with Ian Holm, which played in Dublin, London and at Lincoln Center in New York.

O'Mara is married to actress Paige Turco and has one son, David. The family divide their time between New York and Los Angeles, and make frequent trips to Ireland.
