Polonius, Osric, Doctor, Gravedigger, Hamlet in Act I
Jonathan Slavin was born on a Marine base in North Carolina, and grew up in Kingston, Pennsylvania. After high school, he landed in the New York theater scene, eventually being cast to play the sexually confused protagonist in “The Best of Schools” at Ubu Rep. From there, he moved to Lincoln Center and then Broadway in Wendy Wasserstein’s “The Sisters Rosensweig”, to Dallas to do “Six Degrees of Separation” (a production that was visited and subsequently cited by the Dallas Vice Squad), and finally to Los Angeles, to appear in the West Coast premiere of Larry Kramer’s “The Destiny of Me.”
In television, Jonathan can currently be seen on Netflix’s “Santa Clarita Diet”, and ABC’s “Speechless”. He recently co-starred on the ABC series “Dr. Ken” opposite Ken Jeung, Tisha Campbell-Martin, and Dave Foley. He has appeared as a series regular on “Better Off Ted”, “Andy Richter Controls the Universe”, “Union Square”, and voiced Ogo, a neurotic and slightly deranged robot, on the animated Nickelodeon series “Robot and Monster”. Recent and notable guest stars include “Major Crimes”, “Con Man”, “Grimm”, “Castle”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Weeds”, and “Miss 2059”. His feature film credits include “Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day”, “Dirty Girl”, “Hard Pill”, “A Cinderella Story” and “My Mother’s Hairdo”.
Slavin is an activist, dedicating much of his time to animal rights, and is a longtime vegan and animal rescuer. As a gay man, he is equally committed to LGBT rights, and has participated three times in AIDS/LifeCycle, a nearly 600-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, raising funds for HIV services provided by the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center.
Slavin resides with his husband Michael in Los Angeles, in an odd treehouse, with an array of very badly behaved animals.
