Playing the glory-hungry “Bosco,” Jason Wiles relishes the role of a hot-headed New York cop on “Third Watch.” “Bosco’s attitude gets him in trouble,” says Wiles. “But he’s the guy you’d want there in a crisis because he gets the job done.” He adds that he sees a little Bosco in himself as well: “I’m generally very laid back, but when I’m pushed, it comes out.”

Wiles, who is from Lenexa, Kansas, says he always wanted to be an actor and got his start as an extra and stand-in. At 19, after playing a non-speaking part in the Paul Newman-Joanne Woodward film “Mr. and Mrs. Bridge,” Wiles moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting full time. After a year of struggling, he landed some commercial work and made his television acting debut in a role on an After-School Special, “Big Boys Don’t Cry.”

Wiles has appeared in the films “Higher Learning,” for director John Singleton, as well as Robert Rodriguez’ “Road Racers.” He was also seen in the feature “Kicking and Screaming.” Additionally, he was also the star of the movie "Open House", and independent film that he helped produce.

On television, he guest-starred in “Beverly Hills, 90210” and was a series regular on “To Have and to Hold,” and starred in numerous television movies.

Jason, during the summer of 2003, starred in the play SAFE along with Coby Bell, a play co-written by Anthony Ruivivar.

Wiles and his wife reside in both New York and LA with their children. His birthday is April 25.
