Jason Cook is celebrating his 42nd birthday today!
Cook was born on September 13, 1980, in Camden, New Jersey to Bill Cook (a licensed civil engineer in California) and JoAnn (a preschool teacher). Growing up in Somerdale, he has two sisters, Michelle and Janean, and a brother, Michael. When he was very young, his family moved to California. At an early age, Jason began studying the piano. As his musical skills improved, he got occasional jobs performing at weddings. He did not consider acting until high school when he served as an emergency replacement in Whodunnit. A friend of Jason’s mother, whose husband was an agent and manager for child actors, helped Jason get his first auditions and roles. Jason attended Westlake High School in Westlake Village, California and graduated in 1998.
Jason attended Moorpark College, a two-year junior college, in Moorpark, California and completed his freshman year in the spring semester of 1999. While attending Moorpark College he was active on the speech and debate teams, competing nationally. He is a film director, writer, actor and film producer who is best known for his roles as Matt Hunter on General Hospital and Shawn Brady on Days of Our Lives.
