A talented thespian with boyish good looks, Josh Hamilton’s face is everything but new to our screens. Whether it is in a movie or on stage or TV, the chances are high that you’ve seen his handsome face in some of your favorite hits. With over forty years of experience, the veteran actor has accumulated a plethora of screen credits that cannot go unnoticed. From his career achievements to his family life, here’s an update on Hamilton’s life.

Who is Josh Hamilton?

The son of thespians, Josh Hamilton is no stranger to the entertainment industry. Given his family background, it did not come as a surprise when the native New Yorker began acting at age 8. Despite being in the limelight for so long, the actor has managed to maintain a low profile in his personal life. Besides his parents Dan Hamilton and Sandra Kingsbury, as well as his stepmother actress Stephanie Braxton, not much is known about the actor’s family and early life. Moreover, details regarding his academic background remain a mystery to date.

Hamilton kicked off his career in 1977 and has remained active in the industry for more than four decades. He debuted as an actor portraying Young Charles in the movie A Good Dissonance Like a Man. Between the Aughties, he featured in hit movies like Ice Age (2002), The Bourne Identity (2002), and Homecoming (2005). Hamilton did not slow down in the 2010s as he seemed to be busier landing roles after roles each year. Some of his hit film credits in that decade include J. Edgar (2011), Frances Ha (2012), Dark Skies (2013), The Meyerowitz Stories (2017). More recently in 2018, Josh Hamilton starred in Blaze and Eighth Grade.

Josh Hamilton has also extended his talents to the stage and small screen. On stage, he starred in The Cherry Orchard (2009), Fat Pig (2010), A Doll’s House (2011), and Dead Accounts (2012). The actor made his TV debut in an episode of the 1984 series All My Children. He has since accumulated lots of TV screen credits including CBS Schoolbreak Special (1991) which earned Josh a Daytime Emmy Award, Sex and the City (2000), Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2006), and Law & Order (2008). You may also recognize him from The Good Wife (2012), American Horror Story: Coven (2013), Gracepoint (2014), and many more.

What is the Actor up to Now?

For an entertainer who has been active in the industry for more than forty years, one would presume that Josh Hamilton would be gearing towards retirement. But that doesn’t seem to be the case for the veteran actor. In addition to his already exhaustive film and TV credits, Hamilton continues to grace our screens. More recently he stars as Mr. Matt Jensen in the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

Interestingly, Hamilton’s role in 2018’s teen drama, Eighth Grade has arguably become one of his biggest hits to date. The Sundance hit which was written and directed by YouTube comedian, Bo Burnham gained some awards and attention even from critic groups. Josh Hamilton’s character as Mark, (Elsie Fisher) Kayla’s hot and loving dad gave viewers an unforgettable experience. In addition to the positive reviews, the movie also earned Josh a Detroit Film Critics Society Award and an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

Who Is His Wife – Lily Thorne?

Like most of his other personal details, the media has been kept in the dark as regards Josh Hamilton’s love life. There’s no public record of his dating history and it wasn’t until 2012 that many got wind of the veteran actor’s marital status. While featuring in the short-lived Broadway comedy, Dead Accounts in late 2012, Hamilton who played Phil was seen sharing a steamy kiss with his co-star, Katie Holmes.

Following the scene, reports emerged that the thespian had a crush on Holmes. At the time, the actress was recently divorced from her A-list actor and Scientologist husband, Tom Cruise, after five years of marriage. It was rumored that though Holmes was nice and polite with Hamilton for his admiration, she ultimately wasn’t interested in having a romantic relationship with him.

Hamilton’s reps promptly debunked the ‘crush’ claims as just mere press scandal, stressing that the actor is actually a married man and father. Josh Hamilton’s wife is producer Lily Thorne. The couple who have been married since 2005 have one child together. Like her husband, Lily has also kept details of her personal life low key. Hence, there is little or no detail available regarding the couple’s relationship and family. But for her career endeavors, Lily Thorne is famed for her work on New York: A Documentary Film (1999), Bombay Eunuch (2001), While We’re Young (2014), and the Off-Broadway domestic drama Peace for Mary Frances (2018).
