Jordan Masterson (born April 9, 1986) is an American actor. He is perhaps best known for his role as Mark in the 2005 film The 40-Year-Old Virgin and his recurring role as Dumptruck in ABC Family comedy-drama series Greek. He currently co-stars as Ryan Vogelson on the sitcom Last Man Standing.[1]

He also guest starred in the television series Grounded for Life, George Lopez, Las Vegas, 7th Heaven, CSI: Miami, Without a Trace and How I Met Your Mother.

Masterson is the younger brother of actors Danny Masterson, Christopher Masterson, Alanna Masterson and Will Masterson.[2]

Early life and family[edit]

Masterson was born on April 9, 1986 in Dunedin, Florida. His mother, Carol Masterson, is also his manager, and his father, Joe Reaiche, is a former Australian Professional Rugby league player.

He is the younger half-brother of actors Danny Masterson and Christopher Masterson.[1] (He guest starred on both of his brothers' respective series, That '70s Show and Malcolm in the Middle.) He is also the older brother to actress Alanna Masterson.[3]

Masterson was very active in sports as a child in baseball, tennis and snowboarding.

Personal life[edit]

His mother, Carol, is highly active in the Scientology Church. Jordan and his sister Alanna (who are current members of the Church of Scientology) have cut ties from their father (a former Scientology member) for nearly 10 years now, which requires its members into forced Disconnection and shuns any member (including their father); who either does not follow its doctrine precisely or who criticizes and/or speaks out in any manner that is deemed derogatory by the Organization.

Masterson enjoys playing poker and golf.

He was previously in a long-term relationship with actress Dakota Johnson.[4][5]
