Judd Lorman SEAL TEAM

Judd Lormand proves that he is one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood, having appeared in over 70 feature films and television shows, most recently promoted to series regular on the second season of the CBS’s hit TV series “SEAL Team” (Wednesdays 9/8c).

“SEAL Team” follows the lives of the elite Navy S.E.A.L.s as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high-stakes missions our country can ask. Lormand plays Lieutenant Commander ‘Eric Blackburn’, the SEAL Team troop commander who coordinates operations whenever Bravo team is on missions and serves as the team’s leader and confidant, both on and off the battlefield. The series also stars David Boreanaz, Max Thieriot, Neil Brown Jr., AJ Buckley, Toni Trucks and Jessica Paré.

“What I love about Judd as an actor is his naturalness, his ease of performance and his ability to disappear into the role,” says John Glenn, executive producer and showrunner of “SEAL Team.” “Judd perfectly captures Blackburn as a compassionate advocate and vital leader for Bravo Team. His skill brings Blackburn into such three-dimensional life that we can’t imagine the show without him.”

In addition to his work on “SEAL Team,” Lormand has appeared in over 70 feature films and television shows. His television credits include fellow CBS shows “NCIS: New Orleans” and “Zoo,” as well as “American Horror Story” on FX. He also played Secretary of State Robert McNamara in “LBJ” opposite Woody Harrelson, Mr. Freely in “Carter & June,” and a corrupt police officer in “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Born in Marshall, Texas, Lormand grew up in Houston and spent a number of years in Saudi Arabia, where his father worked as a civil engineer building natural gas pipelines. Later, the family moved to Lafayette, Louisiana, where Lormand attended Comeaux High School and the University of Louisiana. Lormand credits his high school drama teacher for encouraging his interest in theater arts. While in school, he competed in acting tournaments, winning many and further solidifying the acting bug. By 2010, Judd was acting full time, landing part after part. He booked 72 SAG jobs in 72 months – all while living in Louisiana.

Lormand splits his time between Los Angeles and Atlanta, GA. In addition to acting, he is a busy father of three and is interested in astronomy. He is also a huge supporter of veterans and the USO. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram @juddlormand.
