Kerr Van Cleve Smith (born March 9, 1972) is an American actor best known for playing Jack McPhee on The WB drama series Dawson's Creek, Kyle Brody in The WB supernatural drama Charmed and more recently Axel Palmer in My Bloody Valentine 3D. He is also known for portraying Carter Horton in Final Destination.

Early life[edit]

Smith was born in Exton, Pennsylvania, to a father who works as a financial advisor.[1] He has a sister named Allison. He attended Peirce Middle School and he graduated from Henderson High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania, then studied at the University of Vermont, where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.


Smith began acting with roles on As the World Turns as Teddy Hughes from 1996 to 1997, the films Final Destination (2000) and a cameo in The Broken Hearts Club (2000), written and directed by Dawson's Creek writer Greg Berlanti and as a guest star in The WB's hit show Charmed as Agent Kyle Brody- a love interest for the fourth sister, Paige.

When he first appeared as Jack McPhee in the second season of the WB's Dawson's Creek, Smith portrayed a 16-year-old high school student; in reality, the actor was 26. Smith was 31 when the series ended its six-year run in 2003. He was the first man to have an on-screen gay kiss on U.S. television, in season three of Dawson's Creek.[citation needed]

Smith was the last person to ever be pranked on the MTV show, Punk'd. In 2007, he appeared in several episodes of the popular TV series CSI: NY as Andrew "Drew" Bedford, the 333 stalker. Kerr Smith also played the radio host Ryan Thomas on The CW's drama series Life Unexpected.

Smith guest starred on the television show NCIS, where he played Jonas Cobb, a naval officer who also happened to be the "Port-to-Port Killer," a serial killer who targets Navy personnel. He made his last appearance on the 8th Season finale.

Personal life[edit]

Smith married actress Harmoni Everett on June 7, 2003. He filed for divorce as of March 20, 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.[citation needed] Smith is a certified pilot, and enjoys motorcross. He owns a dog named Pat.
