Jesse McCartney stars in the feature film "Chernobyl Diaries" as Chris.

Jesse McCartney has been building a career encompassing acting, singing, songwriting, and voiceover work since he began performing in local community theater at age seven. He has already received two Emmy nominations, two Young Artist Awards and a nomination for a Soap Opera Digest Award for his acting. Jesse McCartney was also a member of the singing group known as the Sugar Beats prior to being a member of the platinum-selling pop group Dream Street. As a solo recording artist, he scored a hit single with "Beautiful Soul." His album of the same name established him as an accomplished singer-songwriter and rising music star.

McCartney grew up in Irvington, New York and is the eldest of three children. His parents — trained actors and singers — would put on a musical stage production in the local community theater each year that included the entire family. That experience led him to pursue a career in entertainment. At only 9 years of age, he was cast as Louis, son of Hayley Mills' Anna, in the Broadway production and the national touring company of "The King and I." Two years later, he landed the role of the young Scrooge opposite Roger Daltrey of The Who in "A Christmas Carol" at Madison Square Garden.

Jesse McCartney's big break came when he was cast in the long-running daytime drama "All My Children" as Adam Chandler, Jr. He was nominated for Daytime Emmy Awards in both 2001 and 2002 for Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Television Series, as well as for a Soap Opera Digest Award. He won the Young Artist Award for his role in the series in 2001 and 2002.

While on "All My Children," he also recorded with the boy band Dream Street, whose debut album, released in 2000, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Independent Album Charts and soared to platinum sales. Their songs have been featured on the soundtracks for "Pokemon 2000" and "The Little Vampire."



At 16, McCartney released his solo debut album, "Beautiful Soul," which sold over 1.8 million copies worldwide. McCartney's songs have topped the charts in the U.S., Australia, Italy, Japan, the Philippines and Taiwan. He was also nominated for Best New Artist by the American Music Awards, Best Pop Video at the MTV Music Video Awards, and has won three Teen Choice Awards: Choice Male Artist, Breakout Artist and Crossover Artist.

McCartney co-wrote "Bleeding Love" with Ryan Tedder of One Republic. The breakout smash for singer Leona Lewis, it was a number one hit in 34 countries, the only song in over a decade to achieve this. The song was nominated for a Grammy Award and won ASCAP's song of the year. His single "Leavin,'" from his Departure album, was number one for five weeks and was Top 40 Radio's most played song of the year.

McCartney's film credits include the teen cult classic "Keith," which won five international film festival awards, and "Beware the Gonzo." On television, McCartney starred in the series "Summerland," which was one of the highest rated shows on The WB during its run in 2004 to 2005, and appeared in the recurring role of Andy during the third season of "Greek" on ABC. He has also guest starred on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and special guest starred on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

McCartney has also voiced characters for animated films, including Theodore in all three "Alvin and the Chipmunks" films, and JoJo in "Horton Hears a Who," with Jim Carrey and Steve Carell. He voiced Roxas and Ventus in the video game series "Kingdom Hearts," and Robin/Nightwing in the animated television series "Young Justice." In an upcoming film, "Clockwork Girl," he will be voicing the role of Huxley.
