Actor / Television & Film Personality
Since moving to Hollywood over 20 years ago, Chad Lindberg has been an in-demand actor who continually works in both film and television. He created such a devoted following for his portrayal of “Ash” the loveable, mullet wearing, super genius on CW’s hit SUPERNATURAL, that after the character’s untimely death the fans demanded and petitioned to bring him back. It worked. And his return garnered the show its highest ratings of the season. He is also forever known and loved as "Jesse" from the original THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS which has now become a Worldwide phenomenon. Lindberg has built a long impressive resume with a reputation as an interesting, talented and extremely versatile actor who breathes life into the unique characters he creates.
His first TV gig, a guest star on BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER was quickly followed with guest stars on other powerhouse series such as ER, THE X-FILES, LAW & ORDER SVU, NYPD BLUE and a major arc on CSI: NEW YORK. Whether as the fast talking gum chewing “Joey Peanuts” on NCIS, half of the villainous duo “Goggles & Hicks” on the super hero drama THE CAPE, bumbling comedic “Detective Tipton” on WEEDS, cool bar manager “Sam” on Rodrigo Garcia’s BLUE, infamous record producer “Terry Melcher” who set the tragic wheels in motion on MANSON’S LOST GIRLS, or the wannabe who even blinged out his ankle monitor “Louis Van Winkle” on ROSEWOOD, Lindberg continues to stretch his extraordinary range with his more recent work.
Lindberg moved seamlessly back and forth between TV and interesting roles in studio and indie films including: the comedy WHITE RIVER KID opposite Antonio Banderas and Wes Bentley, THE ROOKIE opposite Dennis Quaid, the heartbreaking deaf drag queen opposite Salma Hayek in THE VELOCITY OF GARY, and the beloved classic OCTOBER SKY with Jake Gyllenhaal. Current films include a hilarious supporting role in DECODING ANNIE PARKER opposite Samantha Morton and Aaron Paul, ALEX CROSS which reunited Chad with his FAST director Rob Cohen, the cult remake of I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, and next up a fun lead in SECURITY for Millennium and Universal opposite Antonio Banderas and Ben Kingsley.
Lindberg also found a way to put his passion and his Paranormal Investigation skills to the test as the co-host of Destination America's Paranormal reality show GHOST STALKERS and can currently be found leading fans on ghost hunts across the country on Paranormal Investigations.
