came knocking after seeing Jackson's taped audition for the epic, "Alexander." Jackson met with Stone and was cast on the spot to play Perdiccas, Alexander's infantry general alongside Colin Farrel, Val Kilmer and Angelina Jolie. This would be the feature that brought Jackson out to LA to further pursue his passion for acting.

Jackson instantly went to work, starring as Marcus Van Skiver, the nemesis to the title character in "Blade: The Series," a role he earned critical praise for both in North America and internationally. Jackson also guest starred on CBS hit shows, "Cold Case" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

Jackson continued his work in features, starring as Victor Budarin in the Summit/Icon feature "Push" along side Djimon Hounsou and Chris Evans, directed by Paul McGuigan.

In addition to his success in acting, Jackson's writing is also gaining notoriety. In 2007 he wrote the Moroccan thriller "The Passage," which he also starred in alongside Stephen Dorff. "The Passage" premiered at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival. In 2009 production completed on another feature written by Jackson: "Star Crossed," a modernization of Romeo and Juliet set in the World of Portuguese soccer, which is due for release in 2010.
