West Virginia native Josh Stewart ("Jekyll") steps up to the big city as he joins the cast of NBC's “Third Watch” in its sixth season as rookie cop Brendan Finney. “Finney is a stand-up guy, though his family’s past puts him at odds with the rest of the division," says Stewart. "He is a hard charger that won’t take no for an answer, which usually ends up with him feeling like a diver on the platform who just noticed that all the judges are Russian -- and not really caring.”

Born and raised in the small town of Diana, West Virginia, Stewart attended West Virginia Wesleyan College then transferred after a year to West Virginia University where he graduated with a business degree in marketing.

Stewart got his start doing local theater at the Landmark Theatre in Sutton, West Virginia, and eventually moved to NewYork where he studied at the T. Schreiber Studios (and was a company member of the 13th Street Repertory Theatre). He then moved to Los Angeles and performed on stage in “Light Bulb”and “Beacon” (which also starred Robert Forster and Brooke Shields).

In addition, Stewart also had a part in the independent film “Jekyll,” and won a co-starring role in his first pilot, “Then Came Jones.” Other credits television include a guest-starring role on “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
