Type :  

  Summary  

Jeremy Michael London is an American actor. He is best known for his regular roles on Party of Five, 7th Heaven, and I'll Fly Away, as well as a notable supporting role in the Civil War epic Gods and Generals.

  Biography  

 early life
London was born in San Diego, California, the son of Debbie (née Osborn), a waitress, and Frank London, a sheet metal worker. He was raised mainly in DeSoto, Texas. After divorcing Jeremy's father, his mother moved the family 13 times in six years. His identical twin brother, Jason, is older by 27 minutes and is also an actor. Jeremy has worked mostly in television while Jason has opted for a career in feature films. The two have only acted alongside each other once – in the February 3, 2003 episode of the WB's 7th Heaven, entitled "Smoking." They have also competed for the same role – Jeremy's first audition was for a part in the 1991 film The Man in the Moon, which Jason won, leaving Jeremy the part of his brother's stunt double.

 career
London's first and second major television roles were playing Nathan on the critically acclaimed 1991–1993 drama series I'll Fly Away. His brother Jason stepped in for Jeremy for the final episode of the show.

In 1997, he joined the cast of the hit Fox series Party Of Five, playing Griffin for three seasons, after serving as a recurring guest star. He then went on to play a young minister named Chandler Hampton on 7th Heaven from 2002 to 2004. His 7th Heaven character had a father with lung cancer, much like Jeremy's real-life family members. He has since been in many TV serials, TV movies and feature films.

He is also well known for playing T.S. Quint in Kevin Smith's second film Mallrats.

London was a cast member during the fourth season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which premiered on VH1 in December 2010.

 personal life
London and his wife Melissa Cunningham were married in September 2006. They have a son named Lyrik.

 Kidnapping incident
London was allegedly kidnapped on June 10, 2010 in the California desert and forced to smoke drugs at gunpoint, according to London. London was fixing a flat tire outside a hotel in Palm Springs when two men approached to help, local police confirmed in a statement. London claimed the men had a gun and forced him to drive to various locations throughout the city, purchase alcohol and use illicit drugs," police said in the statement.

The illicit substance was crack cocaine or amphetamines, reports Radar Online. After nearly 12 hours of captivity, London claimed he escaped and contacted police about 2:35 a.m.

London's car was found in a Palm Springs development called Gateway Estates, with an arrest made later that day – 26-year-old Brandon Adams, who was charged with kidnapping, robbery and vehicle theft. Adams initially plead not guilty, and London's family expressed doubts about the kidnapping story.

London later denounced his family for telling police "the most outrageous lies you've ever heard in your whole life." He said, "They told a bunch of lies saying this never happened. I haven't even seen them in six months. They have no idea what's going on," adding, "This actually did happen to me. It was one of the worst days of my life."

Brandon Adams, the kidnapper, claimed that London asked him to procure Xanax and Oxycontin pills and also said that London voluntarily went joyriding with him in a quest to locate pills. Brandon claimed London was drinking alcohol and doing drugs in the car voluntarily the entire time.

London's story was later corroborated by an investigating detective who revealed that Adams did, in fact, admit to the kidnapping at gunpoint. Adams subsequently plead guilty to a felony violation of Penal Code section 236, False Imprisonment, and was sentenced to state prison.

 Addiction
London was a cast member during the fourth season of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, which aired on Vh1 from December 2010 to January 2011, and depicted his treatment for addiction at the Pasadena Recovery Center in Pasadena, California. The third episode of that season depicted discussions involving him, Dr. Drew Pinsky and London's wife, Melissa Cunningham, who was simultaneously being treated for addiction herself at a separate wing of the Center. His father, Frank, also appeared in Episode 7, which was filmed during Family Day, in which the patients discussed the effect of addiction on their family relationships.
