I heart Victor Garber. Aside from being an ultra CIA super hero on set as Jack Bristow, Victor is close with co-star Jennifer Garner. His friendship earned him not only a front row spot at Jennifer’s top secret nuptials to Ben Affleck, but Victor donned the collar and performed the ceremony! Whether he’s on screen as the clench jawed, authoritative but caring father, or off set as best buddy and paternal figure, he’s one of our faves.
It’s hard to believe that under the rough exterior of Jack Bristow is a man of a marvel on the Broadway stage. A leading player on Broadway for over two decades, Victor Garber has appeared in comedies and musicals in New York to applause and Tony nominations, but his career in TV and films has been limited to mostly supporting parts. Garber's first stage success of note came in his native Canada, where he performed as Jesus in "Godspell" in a 1972 Toronto ensemble that also included Martin Short and Andrea Martin . A year later, Garber reprised the role in the film version of the musical but he soon settled into working on Broadway. After nearly 20 years, he returned to films in character roles like the slick agent taking clients away from Michael J. Fox and Nathan Lane in James Lapine's "Life with Mikey"(1993); Tom Hanks' friend who is rendered emotional by "The Dirty Dozen" in Nora Ephron's "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993) and Goldie Hawn's ex-husband in "The First Wives Club" (1996) . Garber's highest profile turn came as the Titanic's designer Thomas Andrews, who calmly awaits its inevitable sinking, in James Cameron's blockbuster mega-hit "Titanic" (1997).
