  Summary  

Peter John "Jack" Wagner, II is an American actor and singer, best-known for his roles on the soap operas General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Melrose Place.

  Biography  

 early years
Raised Catholic, Wagner attended St. Gertrude's parochial school and St. Francis Borgia Regional High School in his hometown, where he played football and basketball. He attended the University of Missouri for one year, then junior college before eventually enrolling at the University of Arizona, where he tried out for the golf team and drama department. The drama department offered him a full scholarship.

 acting career
Wagner first appeared on the scene in 1982 in the role of Clint Masterson in Douglas Marland's short-lived cable soap opera, A New Day In Eden (co-produced by Susan Flannery, who would later be Wagner's co-star on The Bold and the Beautiful).

His most famous role has been Frisco Jones on the soap opera General Hospital (1983–1988, 1989–1991, 1994–95). He was half of a supercouple with Kristina Wagner's Felicia and played the father of Georgie and Maxie Jones. He played Warren Lockridge on Santa Barbara (1991–93).

He appeared in several made for television films including Moving Target with Jason Bateman, Lady Killer with Judith Light, Frequent Flyer with Joan Severance, Nicole Eggert and Shelley Hack, and Dirty Little Secret opposite Tracey Gold.

He appeared for many years on the nighttime soap Melrose Place as Dr. Peter Burns (1994–1999), and directed episodes as well. Since early 2003 he has played Dominick Marone on the CBS daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful. He appeared in the NBC TV series Titans with Yasmine Bleeth in 2000, and in Sunset Beach in 1997.

In 1985, Wagner was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for "Best Younger Actor" for his work on General Hospital, but he lost to Brian Bloom from As the World Turns. He was nominated again in 2005 for "Best Lead Actor" for The Bold and the Beautiful, but lost to Christian LeBlanc from The Young and the Restless.

 personal life
He was married to actress Kristina Wagner, who played opposite him on General Hospital as his love interest Felicia Cummings. After marital troubles, they filed for divorce twice, and it was finalized in 2006. The Wagners have two sons, Peter and Harrison. He has been dating his Melrose Place love interest Heather Locklear since 2007. They became engaged in August 2011. Wagner said of his relationship with Locklear and the prospect of marriage: "e're not rushing into anything - we're really focusing on being good parents". In November 2011, Jack met his 23 year old daughter Kerry for the first time at a concert in Florida. Kerry had been placed up for adoption at birth by her mother and recently hired a private investigator to find her biological parents.

Wagner is an avid golfer, ranking as one of the leading celebrity golfers. He is the only non-professional athlete to have won the American Century Celebrity Golf Classic, the annual competition to determine the best golfers among American sports and entertainment celebrities. Wagner first won the event in 2006 and repeated as champion in 2011 when he bested Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo by 3 strokes. Wagner also won the Missouri junior college championship in 1980, and at one point considered a career in pro golf. He has a Celebrity Golf Classic named after him that raises funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Wagner created the event to support the Society's mission to cure such cancers as leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Golf Classic raised more than $600,000 in its first two years to fund critical cancer research and patient services.
