Jack Scalia (born November 10, 1950) is an American actor. He has had many roles in television series (both as a regular and as a guest-star), television movies, and feature films. Scalia was born Giacomo Tomaso Tedesco in Brooklyn, New York of Italian and Irish descent. His parents divorced and when his mother remarried, his name was changed to Scalia. He was drafted third by the Montreal Expos in 1971 as a pitcher. He was injured and never played in the Major Leagues. He began his career as a clothes model, most notably in a series of ads for Eminence briefs and Jordache jeans, both of which capitalized on his "beefcake" appeal. In 1982, to promote his TV series, The Devlin Connection, Scalia took off his shirt and posed, cigarette in hand, for a pin-up wall poster. Scalia was a regular cast member during the final season of Remington Steele in 1987, after which he joined the cast of Dallas in the role of Nicholas Pierce, love interest to Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray).
