Jeffrey Craig Bosley
6' 5"
From birth, Jeff's life seemed destined for the unlikely combination of Army Green Beret and actor. During preschool years, his mother was constantly sewing one super hero cape or costume after another. He then graduated to a two-story camouflaged fort in the back yard, including a "secret" entry door, covered lower gun ports and a trap door to the upper turret. There was even a zip line to escape the fort to safety. When pretending to be John Rambo, he needed camouflaged clothes, which he refused to allow his mother to repair when damaged in combat because "Rambo would not wear patches." And when he was not at playing a Green Beret in his fort or in the nearby hills, he was Maverick in his 2-seater cardboard box Navy jet with his little sister in the rear seat as Goose. She was only three and did not watch Top Gun, so when he hollered to her during a fierce dogfight, "Talk to me Goose;" she looked confused and finally uttered, "Well, it's a nice day." That ruined the whole scene for him. Jeff couldn't just pretend a cardboard box was a car. No, he had to have working windshield wipers. Cap guns weren't acceptable. He saved up for a toy 9mm Beretta that emitted electronic gunshot sounds, so realistic it might get a person shot today. Halloween was Jeff's Christmas. His mom was always there with newly sewn costumes, special effects and makeup. As The Terminator he had a working red robotic eye wired to a battery that was hidden beneath layers of fake charred skin. His Beetlejuice costume had an authentic honking crotch feature, just like the movie. And his Freddy Kruegar costume was too real, getting him in trouble at the Lutheran grade school he attended - a bit over the top, but routine for him. At the same Lutheran school, he was in a Christmas play and, without telling anyone, rigged his pants so they would drop to his ankles when he performed a cartwheel. A church play, in the church. Jeff is an avid fly fisherman who tied his own flies and rowed drift boats in the Henry's Fork River of Idaho for college tuition. He also took a turn at steer wrestling, SCUBA diving and fire fighting. It seemed his only constants have been fitness and the world of pretend. In college, his love of acting continued, and he studied acting and performed in years worth of theatre productions. But then came 9/11 and it was on his mind the next several years. Before he aged too much and regretted not trying, he decided to join the United States Army and become a Green Beret. And not just a Green Beret, but a rarer Green Beret medic. Despite staggering odds against success, he did exactly as he determined he would do. When Jeff is involved with acting, he's like a kid in a candy store, always on his phone or computer, seeking auditions. He has acted in USC student films, independent projects, fully funded projects and everything in between. Jeff is acting and producing several movies between Denver and Los Angeles. As with everything in his life, he sees this as another great unending adventure, not work. Jeff's acting life, work ethic and obsession with perfection can be summed up when eavesdropping on a recent conversation between him and the other lead in a recent film: She asked him what he did for fun. Jeff's response: work.

-   Worked in the United States Army in the elite Special Forces aka The Green Berets.

-   Went to college in Idaho and Washington for Theatre then joined the United States Army Special Forces (The infamous 'Green Berets').

-   Has a tattoo of the Archangel Michael hovering over a headstone with hash marks carved into it. Each hash mark represents something that must be done before Jeff dies. The first hash mark was becoming a Green Beret. The next hash mark space is for when he succeeds in Hollywood.

-   Very superstitious. Puts every script from every film, theatre production or monologue in a thin red binder and there are several shelves of these binders in his house.

-   (2001) Photoshoot for SanMar Magazine
