James Wlcek

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

James “Jimmy” M. Wlcek (born February 22, 1964, in New York City, New York)[1] is an American stage and film actor.


A native New Yorker, Wlcek made his acting debut in 1987 in an episode of the television series Tales from the Shadow World. From that same year until 1989, he portrayed the role of Ben Shelby in 49 episodes of the television series Ryan’s Hope. From 1990 to 1992, he appeared in the role of Linc Lafferty in the television series Young and Passionate – As Life Goes. This was followed in the late 1990s by the series role of Trent Malloy in Walker, Texas Ranger. He took on the same role in six episodes of the television series Sons of Thunder in 1999. From the 2000s, his presence as a series actor declined significantly and he predominantly weighed in at irregular intervals in various television and feature films such as The Ex-Girlfriends of My Friend or Hydra – The Lost Island.

He has been married to Susan Broccoli since 1997. The couple has two children.[1] In 1998, he appeared as a stage actor in the Producers Club Theatre.
