Marc Evan Jackson was a prolific American comedic actor who was best known for his recurring roles in shows like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Fox/NBC, 2013- ), "The Good Place" (NBC, 2016- ), and "Parks and Recreation" (NBC, 2009-2015). Born in Buffalo, New York and raised in Amherst, Massachusetts, Jackson never intended on becoming an actor. In fact, after graduating from Calvin College with a Bachelor's degree in philosophy, he spent the first few years of his post-college life working on sailing vessels in Maine and Michigan. After a number of years doing that, Jackson eventually found himself in Michigan, where he got his first taste of show business stardom by hosting a morning radio show for the NPR affiliate in Grand Rapids. By the late 90s Jackson was in his late 20s and began taking improv classes at Second City Detroit. He quickly fell in love with performing in front of a live audience, and by 1998 Jackson had risen through the ranks to become a member of the Detroit company. In 2001 Jackson moved to Los Angeles to try and make it as a film and TV actor. He taught improv at Second City Hollywood during the evening, while going to auditions during the day. By the mid-2000s he was nabbing guest spots on shows like "According to Jim" (ABC, 2001-09), "Reno 911!" (2003-09), and "Carpoolers" (ABC, 2007-08). After nearly a decade in the business, by the early 2010s Jackson began landing more recurring TV parts on shows like "Key and Peele" (Comedy Central, 2012-15) and "Workaholics" (Comedy Central, 2011-17). Then in 2013 Jackson nabbed his first big break when he began playing Trevor Nelsson on "Parks and Recreation." His part in that series gave Jackson a level of exposure that his career hadn't been afforded up until that point. After his part on "Parks and Recreation" ended, Jackson enhanced his profile even further with recurring roles on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (playing the husband of Andre Braugher's Captain Raymond Holt) and the Golden Globe-nominated philosophical comedy "The Good Place" (playing Sean, the nemesis of series lead Ted Danson).
