Jonathan

Played by Bradley Whitford

Jonathan

Thom's immediate boss and close friend is trying to adapt to the new corporate paradigm rather than fight it. In his fifties, he has taken to wearing skinny jeans in an effort to fit in with the perpetually younger-skewing advertising industry. But he's in a difficult position as 'management,' and his advice that Thom change with the times or face the consequences does not go over well.

Bradley Whitford

Bradley Whitford, a classically trained stage actor who has received critical acclaim for his roles in theater, film, and television, quickly gained overnight fame as the sarcastic yet vulnerable Josh Lyman on THE WEST WING.

Whitford currently recurs on the award-winning comedy series TRANSPARENT, which won the 2015 Golden Globe for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy, opposite Jeffrey Tambor. Whitford also starred in the comedy series TROPHY WIFE, opposite Malin Akerman and Marcia Gay Harden. Additional television credits include THE GOOD GUYS, co-starring Colin Hanks, STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNET STRIP; ER; THE X-FILES; and NYPD BLUE. His performance as Josh Lyman on THE WEST WING earned him a 2001 Emmy® award as well as Golden Globe award nominations in 2001 and 2002.

In late 2014, Whitford wrapped production on the Hank Williams biopic I SAW THE LIGHT, starring opposite Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, and Cherry Jones. Written, produced, and directed by Marc Abraham, he plays Fred Rose, a deceptively brilliant businessman who worked closely with Hank Williams for years managing and promoting his career as a performer and music publisher. He was also recently seen in the Disney feature film SAVING MR. BANKS, starring opposite Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrel, Paul Giamatti, and Jason Schwartzman. Written by Kelly Marcel and directed by John Lee Hancock, the film recounts Author P.L. Travers' travels from London to Hollywood as Walt Disney Pictures adapts her novel MARY POPPINS for the big screen.

Film credits include THE CABIN IN THE WOODS, AN AMERICAN CRIME, THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS, LITTLE MANHATTAN, KATE & LEOPOLD, THE MUSE, BICENTENNIAL MAN, SCENT OF A WOMAN, A PERFECT WORLD, PHILADELPHIA, THE CLIENT, MY LIFE, RED CORNER, PRESUMED INNOCENT, and MY FELLOW AMERICANS.
