Jamey Sheridan as Captain James Deakins in Law & Order: Criminal Intent

Jamey Sheridan (born July 12, 1951 in Pasadena, California) is an American actor.

He has had a prolific acting career in theater, television, and film productions. Born in California to a family of actors, he made it to Broadway and earned a Tony nomination in 1987 for his performance in the revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons. After several TV movie appearances, he landed a reccurring role as lawyer Jack Shannon on Shannon's Deal, which ran for one season in 1990. His later television roles include Dr. John Sutton on Chicago Hope (from 1995-1996) Sheridan started his film career in the late '80s with small roles, and by the '90s he was playing the token family man, a role he would continue in both film and television. He was also capable of playing villains, as he did in the 1994 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand. Other interesting roles include Marty Stouffer in Wild America and the psychotic neighbor in Video Voyeur: The Susan Wilson Story. After a long history of performing Shakespeare on the stage, Sheridan appeared in Campbell Scott's production of Hamlet in 2000 as well as the Hamlet-inspired modern noir film Let the Devil Wear Black in 1999. He has also given fine supporting performances in The Ice Storm, Cradle Will Rock, Life as a House, and numerous TV movies.

Currently he plays Captain Deakins in the tv series Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Late in the 2004-2005 season, Sheridan began wearing an eyepatch as he began showing the symptoms of Bell's palsy. This was written into the show, though reportedly this is expected to be only temporary.

Sheridan and his wife, actress Colette Kilroy, have two children.
